Situated overlooking the Masuwe River, The Wallow Lodge offers an intimate safari getaway in the heart of a private concession within Victoria Falls National Park. The lodge is set along the banks of the Masuwe River, surrounded by 4,500 acres of wilderness that stretches into the horizon, where a cloud of mist from the ‘Mosi-Au-Tunya’ commands the skyline. Victoria Falls is a short twenty-minute transfer from the lodge, giving guests the freedom to tailor-make their experience and find a balance between the exclusivity of the bush and the excitement of Africa’s Adventure Capital.

My husband and I celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary there as well as my birthday. We had the most enjoyable time. The Lodge as well as the staff were awesome. The accommodation as well as the food was top class. The staff really made us feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. We will recommend Wallow Lodge to anyone. We love to mention some of the names of the staff the were outstanding (BHEKI, NEWTON, CHARLES, ANDERSON, BRIGHTON, REJOICE, SHARON, LESLEY, THAIBISO. They went out of their way for us.

What a great stay! The accommodations were the best and very comfortable. Being able to look out over the river and see wildlife was the highlight of each morning. The food was incredible, and the staff were friendly, helpful and great to talk with. We stayed here as part of a tour of South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, and the Wallow was absolutely the best place we stayed!

The Wallow Lodge is wonderful. It takes the idea of Glamping to a different level. The rooms are beautifully situated. The quality of the furnishings and linens is very high. Food was wonderful. Staff and service is excellent. Wish we could have stayed longer!!

This was a last minute trip for me and I booked based on reviews online. I was set to stay 2 nights and ended up staying 4. Every member of the Wallow staff was incredible. I can not say enough about each and every aspect of this lodge. No detail was left unattended to. As a solo female traveler it’s important to feel safe but it’s a luxury to feel so well cared for. The staff knew what I needed before I even had to ask. Chalton was my guide for the four days and he could not have been more kind. He is knowledgeable and well spoken. If you are going to Victoria Falls this is the place to stay. Being at a place that was all inclusive was wonderful. So many activities! I loved my time visiting the elephants and the many drives of the reserve. The visit to the falls is something I’ll never forget. Food was always wonderful. The room was gorgeous and bed so comfortable!! If I’m ever back in Zimbabwe this is where I’ll stay! Thank you Wallow for such a wonderful week.

The Wallow Lodge is a beautiful resort with luxurious tents! Staff are friendly and goes the extra mile to please their guests. Meals were exceptional and staff were attentive to our needs. Game drives exceeded our expectations and game driver, Eddy was very knowledgeable with the Big Five, and also sharing the culture of the Zimbabwean people.

A last minute booking for 4 adults that turned out to be one of the best experiences ever. From the moment we were greeted at the airport by Charlton and then met by the amazing team at Wallow Lodge, we felt at home and absolutely spoilt. Our rooms, which are tented stand alone villas, were luxurious , with beautiful wood finishes and both an inside and outside shower. Our laundry was done as part of our fully inclusive package. The chef was excellent and our barmen/waiters were always friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Game drives with Charlton was informative and exciting and we would stop for canapés and drink at a lookout point with breathtaking views. Massages were arranged for us at their sister lodge to which we were transported. My adult sons did the white water rafting and this is surely going to be remembered for years to come, especially the hike up & down the gorge! The guided tour of the Vic Falls was also breathtaking . We were simply blown away by the work ethic, the attention to detail and the great hospitality that we received at the Wallows. I can't recommend it more highly. Thank you to the entire team for a memorable holiday.

Charlton and the team at the lodge (manager, waiters, guides, chef, etc) - everyone made our stay an enjoyable experience. Accommodation is fantastic- game (mostly impala) roaming around outside your suite from time to time, and we could certainly hear some visitors outside at night. Great food, great service, game drives, well guided tour to Vic falls. A big thank you to all the staff - you made our holiday an experience to remember

Spent 2 nights here- miss it the most from a 2-week tour. The animal viewing and  skyline are spectacular. Immensely kind staff. Rejoice booked my helicopter ride. Under the leadership of the world's best hosts ever- Tinashe. Donate to his efforts which seem community building.  You can donate to get a tree and track its growth over time (better than a trinket). Next time I spend more on his suggestions.   So fun and I felt safe as a solo female traveler and enjoyed my escorts to my room after 6pm cuz of the critters.  So nice to lay in bed and listen to the critter action outside my tent, drink that orange stuff you mix with water, and be in my robe. Came with Collette tours and weeks later, we are still talking about how good the bed was! That BED!!!! That open-air restaurant was awesome to chill and watch impalas.  I'd walk back alone in the day with warthogs staring at me. Broad array of food and good bar selection. Honeymoon, bring the kids.  Kudos to Zimbabwean Glamping!!!
