This traditional wood and thatch lodge enjoys stunning views over endless stretches of pristine bush. Seventy two comfortable rooms have private balconies from which to gaze out over the landscape and waterhole, as the sun dips below the horizon.
There are 6 blocks of rooms under thatch and the split central areas are spread over three levels, although a lift is available. The open spaces and contemporary décor create a warm African ambiance, ideal for unwinding whilst absorbing the exquisite vistas. Delicious meals are served in the MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant and bar snacks at the Buffalo Bar. Perhaps enjoy The Boma – Dinner and Drum Show with its traditional dancing and drumming as well as wide range of local and international dishes. The lodge has a complimentary shuttle which runs to the Falls and the town, as well as full wi-fi access.

For the more active, walking trails are abundant.
The truly adventurous can explore birding habitats on horseback and move away from the tourist crowds.
