Old Drift Lodge

Location: Zambezi National Park, Victoria Falls

Upstream of the iconic Victoria Falls in the Zambezi National Park lies a pristine piece of land on the banks of the Zambezi River. Nestled within this wild paradise is Old Drift Lodge, a place frequented by elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, impala, warthog, wild dogs, lion and on occasions, cheetah. The untouched natural beauty of the park is sprawled over 56 000 breath taking hectares.


Upstream of the iconic Victoria Falls, on the banks of the Zambezi River, lies Old Drift Lodge. The lodge boasts luxury accommodation overlooking the pristine Zambezi National Park, a mere 7 kilometres from the mighty Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

The main lodge area has 360-degree views, North facing onto the Zambezi & South facing onto a water hole. A 7-kilometre stretch of river flows between the camp and the town of Victoria Falls, making Old Drift Lodge the closest lodge within the National Park to Victoria Falls. Luxury boats transport guests to this natural utopia where the lodge is able to accommodate safari goers in 10 double suites and 4 family suites.

The spacious canvas en-suite rooms exhibit an air of elegance that blends in seamlessly with the natural environment. The suites are resplendent with stylish furnishings and fittings, accentuated by an indoor and outdoor shower, private plunge pool and bath with a view.

The activities offered at Old Drift Lodge emphasise the rich natural environment, focusing on the abundance of wildlife that roam through the Park and swim beneath the surface of the Zambezi River.
