After 7 days of rafting down the river we were treated to a great experience at Taita Falcon. Unique location looking down the Batoka Gorge, excellent food and great chalets give you the real...

Okay, this is the third attempt to rate and report on this lodge. The first one was not ever posted as tripadvisor felt it did not meet their guidelines. The second was actually posted and then pulled down after the owners gave a casual response and then I was informed by tripadvisor that I once again did not meet the...

This lodge was one of our destinations on a two week adventure trip through Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana. Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendly staff and shown around the main gathering area/bar. They have ample seating options, all of which overlook the Mighty Zambezi. After rafting the river for the past three days it was great to see...

The owners of Taita Falcon Lodge , once again, would like to express our deep regret about the incident and promise that we are doing everything in our power that it does not happen again.We have not had a theft in 12 years and might not have been as ready as we should have been.

After a three week African Safari camping trip it was a joy to enjoy a couple of days of comfort and relaxation at Taita Falcon Lodge before returning home. The location is spectacular and the individual chalets are comfortable, well appointed and each one has it's own private garden area with an outdoor shower. Hosts Faan and Anmarie were welcoming...

I really don't know where to begin. Fa'an and Annmarie, first and foremost, thank you for delivering more than accommodations, but creating an experience that brings out the best in Zambian hospitality. You make each guest feel welcome and at home. Taita Falcon is off the beaten path away from the pedestrian and cookie cutter big hotels along the Livingstone...

The lodge is situated 11km or so outside of Livingstone, which is not so far but the roads are really bad, so it takes 30 - 40 mins to get there from town. They do their own transfers in an old hardy land cruiser, as none of the regular transfer companies will drive the roads. If you like a little...

Thank you for your review. Just one correction - Taita Falcon Lodge is 20km from Livingstone Town and 11 km from the Victoria Falls. Unfortunately the Council road for the first 6km dirt road is not good. After trying for a few years now they at last have it out on tender for fixing this year. They are now just...

Unfortunately I was able to spend only one night in this amazing hotel. We arrived to the hotel by the helicopter (lucky us and yes hotel has its own helipad), so I wasn’t aware how far it is from Livingstone. Only when we drove to Livingstone the next day, I realised it is rather longish drive on a dusty road....

We were forewarned about the road to Taita from town but seeing as we are residents and used to African road conditions, we found it to be a little rough in some places but perfectly doable and no rougher than other lodges on gravel roads. The rooms are lovely with spacious bathrooms and piping hot water. The lighting of mosquito...

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
