Reviewed 28 February 2017

A beautiful lodge set overlooking the gorge downstream from the falls. if it is not graded 4 or 5 star, then it should be

Food/service/staff/manager(s) simply fabulous; can't say enough about them.

Faan Fourie (owner) cannot be described in words - an absolute gem of a host.

Rooms are large and airy and very comfortable.

WiFi is available at the restaurant/bar.

Really quiet place leaving you totally relaxed and at peace with the world! Well worth a visit for just a meal to enjoy the view and tranquility

Room Tip: Any room has stunning views

Had a great stay in a lovely room. Enjoyed a really nice dinner and breakfast, beautiful scenery and the view of the gorge is very special. One night was too short, will definitely go back when I'm in Livingstone.

Lovely place, lovely people, wonderful food...and the view! Well.... Can't recommend highly enough. Beautiful room, plenty of space, excellent shower, AND a cold one outside! I didn't want to go but we had more Zambia to explore.

The place is amazing and incredible beautiful. Also all the team, that take care of us as if we were their own family. The rooms are the best we have stay in, on all our trip. Really confortable, clean, with prevention to mosquitoes provided by the lodge itself, and with all the details really, really pretty. The food...we have no words to explain the nice taste of all the food they served to us. Is our top10 place of our journey!!! Thank you so much to all the team of Taita Falcon Lodge!!!

Room Tip: all are really good chalets!!!

We stayed here for 3 nights last month and enjoyed our stay completely. The Batoka gorge view is unforgettable and just to sit there watching the mighty Zambezi was a very memorable experience. The owner, Faun has wonderful stories to tell about this place so do enquire. The chalets are unique and clean though it felt warm inside and the tiny fan was hardly sufficient. The food was good. My husband enjoyed the swimming pool and I loved reading the coffee table books that are available.
Is this value for money? I would think this is more pricy for the facilities offered.

Room Tip: You will never forget the view of the gorge from here!

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunarely the time of the year is exeptionally hot and dry and due to the fact that we run on solar in the rooms we cannot have big fans. As the rains have started not long after your visit I wish you could see it now -beautifull green bush and it has cooled off a lot. Please come and visit us again some other time of the year when it is not so hot and dry and I can assure you a most pleasant stay!

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.

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
