Your stay at Tongabezi will accommodate you in an open-fronted riverside cottage for unfiltered views of the mighty Zambezi. With its secluded location and a personalized valet service, these fully-equipped chalets will be the perfect haven to return to after a day of adventure.
Spend time drifting along the waterways of the Zambezi on a canoeing excursion, and watch nature take its course during a sunrise or sunset boating safari. As the main attractions, the river and its residents will keep you entertained for hours while a day trip to the Falls or a trip to see the largest herds of African elephant in the Chobe National Park will be a highlight of your stay.
Upon arrival at Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport, formerly known as Livingstone Airport, you will be met by a lodge representative and taken on a road transfer to Tongabezi.
Explore the lodge's perimeter on a guided nature walk that will lead you through the dense bush and expose you to the smaller facets of the bush such as insects, plant life and spoor left behind by free-roaming wildlife. Meet the local people during a cultural visit to the indigenous villages where souvenirs can be purchased at the bustling markets and curio stores.
Visits to the museums in Livingstone will introduce you to the rich history of the area that the great explorer, David Livingstone, introduced to Europe. The thundering presence of the Victoria Falls will be the highlight of your Zambia safari and hours will be spent in awe of this natural phenomenon. Here, you will find an impressive list of optional activities that are sure to pump adrenaline into adventurous spirits.
An optional trip to the Chobe National Park is the ideal way to get closer to the land animals of Zambia. Game drives through the park will afford you with up-close encounters with the grey giants of the bush, and these elephant herds often occupy the Chobe River. Your game viewing experience will include possible sightings of buffalo, puku, lion, spotted hyena and other predators.
An abundant birdlife includes storks, herons and the African fish eagle scans the river and its floodplains from above. Enjoy private meals at one of the lodge's three open-air dining areas, or dine with other guests at the shared dining table.
Couples can enjoy a romantic seating on a sampan, resting in the middle of the river, as waiters deliver meals via a canoe. Dining under a canopy of stars, surrounded by vivid sounds of the nocturnal wildlife, this experience is a spectacular way to indulge in marvelous meals.
