Although we did not stay at this hotel we enjoyed a fabulous lunch on the deck overlooking the gorge. My fillet steak was the best I have had in Zambia and the Mosi's nice and cold. Best of all is the view as well as the chance to see the Taita Falcon, which is a very rare bird.

It was a relaxing moment. The enviroment made me appreciate the beautiful places we have in Zambia. For those who wants peace and tranquility try Taita lodge. You have the sound of birds and the roaring Zambezi river

Taita Falcon Lodge gives you a real African experience by staying on the Batoka Gorge of the Zambezi River. Living in a large hut made from natural materials gives you the 'real feeling'. The owners and their staff are friendly and most helpful, seeing that all your needs are met. The food is outstanding. It's a great place to rest...

My group pretty much took over the lodge. Cold, refreshing drinks were on hand when we arrived. Lodge is fairly remote and takes a bit of time to get there but it's worth the effort. The view of the Zambezi is amazing. The rooms are all separate cottages and are really large and nice and felt authentic. The owners/managers hung...

Wonderful view of Zambezi & sunset. Flew in by helicopter - they have their own helipad. Good food, helpful staff. Chalets nicely laid out with private secluded garden in mine. Friendly South African owners.

Great Lodge with the best views in Zambia, must be 900 feet above the Zambezi River with unobstructed views of the river as it bends and over Rapid 17.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Taita Falcon Lodge is only 11 km from the Victoria Falls and is stunningly perched 200m above the Zambezi on the edge of the Batoka Gorge and is a luxurious bush experience at the Victoria Falls. Owner managed, the lodge's focus is on providing personalized service to each individual client. With only 7 chalets, the lodge offers an intimate stay or an exclusive venue to smaller groups. Each spacious chalet is en-suite with its own private garden and outdoor shower. The chalets are constructed of reed and stone with 3/4 walls bringing the outside in. All creature comforts are catered for in their elegantly down to earth design. Chalets are individually prepared as double, twin, triple or family rooms. The indigenous gardens are blended with "bush zen" sand gardens at the lodge entrance and chalet exteriors, and a "green theme" around the swimming pool. There is a boma where evening winter meals are hosted around an open fire. The large viewing deck and adjacent lounge play host to meals and pre-dinner drinks in conjunction to providing expansive views downstream and miles beyond! Our meals are hearty "Afrikaans style" cooking with healthy options prepared in conjunction. We offer full board packages as well as fully inclusive tour packages incorporating visits to the Victoria Falls, cultural village tours, guided bush and bird walks, game drives and a sunset cruise. Any of the numerous activities in the region can easily be arranged by the Lodge. A paradise for birders, Taita also offers guided hiking trails in and around the Batoka Gorge.An ideal beginning or ending to your African Safari - spend a few days taking in the natural wonder of the Victoria Falls and the many adventure activities that the region has to offer!! ... more   less
