The Victoria Falls River lodge is situated on the banks of the Zambezi where you can relax and watch hippos play while sipping on your drink of choice, qreferably from the comfort of your private plunge pool..
My first Safari experience was till date probably still my best. A 10 day trip through Botswana in Luxury tents with AndBeyond ending off with one night of pure relaxation at the Victoria Falls River Lodge.
We arrived by speedboat on a warm dusty afternoon after a quick trip to Victoria Falls and immediately changed into our swimwear to take a dip in our private plunge pool. We had no idea what to expect but it definitely exceeded anything what might have had in mind. Our room was a free standing wooden structure, with canvas covering most of it and it was so private that we almost felt that we were in the middle of nowhere (which we kind of were!)
The plunge pool with an epic view of the river and wildlife was the perfect spot to sip an ice cold Zambezi beer and reflect on our adventures. We had a BBQ style buffet dinner under the stars with bonfires crackling nearby and for one moment it was like time stood still. I really did not want to get on a plane the next day to go back to reality.
The next morning we went on a river cruise to see some hippos and crocodiles up close. It was so cool because just like a normal morning game drive we had some coffee and rusks on the boat in the middle of the river.
Its really the perfect place for a romantic African getaway and I hope that I am lucky enough to visit again one day! Check out the Victoria Falls River Lodge here.
