Old Drift Lodge enjoys a privileged location overlooking the mighty Zambezi River. Set within the Zambezi National Park, this lodge makes the perfect base to explore Victoria Falls. From here, you also have great access to Victoria Falls town and the falls themselves.

Your tented living spaces are en suite and equipped with luxury facilities such as a private plunge pool and an outdoor bathing tub. Meals are prepared with locally sourced ingredients and herbs grown onsite.

Throughout, the lodge boasts incredibly scenic views over the river as well as a watering hole to the north. Animal sightings are frequent from the main lodge, and the remote location by the constant water source of the river enable fantastic birdwatching year-round.
Meanwhile, you can cover more of the surrounding area on guided hikes, game drives and river safaris. Here, you’re likely to spot iconic African wildlife including giraffe, eland, kudu, elephant and many others.
