I think this was our 4th visit to Taita Falcon, we were not disappointed and each time you come through the reception & see the magnificent view of the Bakota Gorge in front of you it takes your breath away. The staff are super friendly and could not do enough to make our stay a very enjoyable one. The food is plentiful & tasty but do not expect 5* restaurant quality - to me the food is good but not outstanding. You need to let the lodge know if you will be there for dinner before hand.

Our chalet was clean & very comfortable with plenty of room & a great outside shower which although it only had cold water was a real pleasure in the heat of Dec/Jan. There is also an inside shower with hot water so the outside shower is not your only option.

Do not let the prospect of the bumpy dirt road to lodge put you off - you would be seriously missing out if this puts you off! - I can recommend Taita Falcon to anyone who is looking for a unique experience away from the 'glits' of Livingston.

Our dear friends from Zambia took us to Taita Falcon Lodge the last night of our visit with them. It was a wonderful lodge. Perched on the Bakota gorge the views were amazing. We sent the afternoon bird watching, including seeing a Peregrine falcon, from the open air dining area and then enjoyed a beautiful sundowner.
The chalets were spacious, private, well kept, and very comfortable. Each having its own private small garden area where you could also enjoy bird watching. The common gardens and pool area were lovely.
The staff was very polite and professional. The food was very good and very plentiful. Our host and the owner Faan was a delight to talk and visit with. One night was too short to enjoy all the lodge has to offer. I would highly recommend Falcon Lodge for a once in a lifetime experience, on our next visit to Livingstone I plan on staying longer.

The lodge overlooks a stunning drop of over 700 feet to beautiful rapids on the Zambezi River. We enjoyed this amazing view daily from the indoor/outdoor dining room. Our hosts Faan and Anmarie have created a beautifully enjoyable atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy. John, Dixon and Victor were amazing -- anticipating our every need. We have never been so well taken care of. They will tailor make any meal to your tastes, and arrange any type of activity (Victoria Falls, Game Drive) you would like. It's well worth the trip. The most incredible stay we have had anywhere in the world.
