Victoria Falls Island Lodge (Zambezi Crescent)

Victoria Falls, Zambezi National Park

Victoria Falls Island Lodge is a brand new, luxury and exclusive retreat located on Kandahar Island  in the middle of the Zambezi River, upstream of the Victoria Falls.

Accessible only by boat from the mainland, the Island Lodge consists of private "treehouse suites" built of timber and glass on elevated decks overlooking the river.  The suites are connected to the main guest areas by raised walkways through the woodland.

Each private suite accommodates two guests, with an elegantly appointed, air-conditioned bedroom, spacious bathroom and sitting area, and a private deck and plunge pool.  Tea and coffee-making facilities, complementary wi-fi and a personal butler service are provided.

The main sitting, dining and bar areas are spacious and open-plan, with panoramic views of the river, and a special sunrise-sunset viewing platform. 

Activities include:- sunrise and sunset river cruises on the Zambezi; guided morning and afternoon game drives into the nearby Zambezi National Park; wildlife viewing from your own deck and a tour of the Victoria Falls.

Optional activities (available at an additional cost) include: spa treatments, fishing safaris, guided canoe safaris, guided walks, scenic helicopter flights over the Falls, white-water rafting, zip-lining and canopy tours, bungee jumping, bridge swinging and other Victoria Falls Bridge activities, arts and crafts shopping and historical tours in Victoria Falls town.

The Island Lodge is a short distance by boat from the mainland and its sister property, the Victoria Falls River Lodge.   Vehicle transfers to and from Victoria Falls airport are included.  Transfers to and from Livingstone airport can be arranged at additional cost.

A 5* experience. We stayed two nights at the new Island Lodge. It was a huge mistake... We should have stayed longer. This is one of the most spectacular hotels I have ever stayed at. There are 5 'treehouse' suites on the island. Each one has a beautiful bedroom, luxurious bathroom and a deck with plunge pool. All this overlooking the Zambezi river. Delicious meals are served outside on a covered deck. Thank you, chef Leo. The bar is a few steps up in another treehouse. The gin selection is top-notch and they also make a great Bloody Mary. But, what really makes the lodge so special is the staff. The General Manager, Roddy, was a genial host (and sometime bartender) who helped us plan our activities during our stay. Our guide Polite was our driver (both on land and river) as well as a knowledgeable tour guide at Victoria Falls. He always knew where to take the best photos. Mathius and Obert were there making sure no details were missed. We can't wait to return.
