WATERBERRY ZAMBEZI LODGE - LIVINGSTONE
Waterberry Lodge is set on the Zambezi riverbank near Victoria Falls and perfectly placed for guests to enjoy total peace and quiet while being close to the Falls and all the adventures that Livingstone has to offer. Away from the noise and bustle of activities around town the perfect silence is enhanced by birdsong, the sound of hyena and lion on the opposite bank and the whistle of frogs along the river’s edge
Choose from bright, individual rooms in the 7-room lodge, a private safari house or a luxury tented woodland site. The lodge is right on the river and has spacious sun and dining terraces, a lounge, magnificent gardens with individual cottages dotted around the lawns and along the river, and a swimming pool surrounded by rockery gardens.
There are lots of activities to choose from – inhouse a sunset river cruise and a visit to a local village and school. Further afield is Victoria Falls and there are so many ways to see them - walk around, climb down to the Boiling Pot, fly over in a helicopter or microlight, raft the rapids, climb under the spray at low water, or swim in Devils Pool at the top of the Falls. Or you can simply enjoy relaxing at the lodge and experience rural Zambian life first-hand - see how tourism is giving back schools, a farming cooperative and adult skills centre.
Waterberry Zambezi Lodge is located on the banks of the Zambezi River just outside Livingstone in Zambia. It is around 30 minutes drive from Livingstone and around 45 minutes drive from Victoria Falls.

The Woodlands at Waterberry – The 3 Forest Tents were originally set up for birders and guests wanting a wilder experience. The Woodlands proved so popular that the woodland site is now open to those wanting that special wilderness feeling without sacrificing comfort and luxury. The three safari tents are furnished as doubles or twins, with lounge seating inside and out, plenty of storage for clothes and luggage, a private veranda garden and an ensuite bathroom.
Guests enjoy breakfast at The Woodlands either at their tent or on the central dining veranda. Other meals are served in the Waterberry restaurant which is a couple of hundred metres walk away along sandy paths round the private dam. The swimming pool and other lodge facilities are for Woodlanders.
ACTIVITIES AND WILDLIFE
Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi - a sunset cruise is the perfect way to start the holiday, relaxing on the peace and quiet of the Zambezi with a gin and tonic and snacks, watching whatever wildlife comes your way and with a virtually guaranteed perfect sunset.
School and village visit – many Waterberry staff live at the village visited which gives a unique view of life in rural Zambia. Your guide will show you daily life, housebuilding, agriculture and the Tukongote School built with guest donations.
There are a huge amount of offsite activities which you can book at the lodge on arrival or we can book them as part of your itinerary.
