We were a group of ten extended family from Botswana, South Africa, Switzerland and Australia. On arrival we were met by the fantastic view of the 17th Gorge and the Mighty Zambezi, 200 meters below the Deck we werre vstanding on. The hospitality was first class and very friendly. The cuisine was extremely good and the tastes of Africa were very evident in the fare. You want for nothing at the Lodge and there are many fantastic activities to do from the Lodge and from the Waterfront in nearby Livingstone. The view of the Falls from the Zambian side is fantastic and is an example of Nature at her most beautiful. You see the power of the Mighty Zambezi when you look over the edge of the Falls and realise how small we are. We all had a fantastic time and will definitely look at returning to Taita Falcon Lodge to experience the Peace and Tranquility that is found at the Lodge. The staff are very efficient, professional and above all friendly.
