About Taita Falcon Lodge

Nestled above the Zambezi River, overlooking its winding waters and the dramatic cliffs of the Batoka Gorge lies Taita Falcon Lodge. This wilderness retreat is located in the heart of Zambia, downriver from the mighty Victoria Falls.

This secluded lodge has a total of 7 en-suite chalets all of which are designed and built using local materials, with stones from the gorge and reeds from the river. Each chalet is named after a bird of prey that can be seen soaring the skies. Décor is simple, yet stylish, with hints of handmade crafts and natural features, keeping in tune with its wilderness surrounds.

The lodge itself was designed to showcase the dramatic views that surround it. With its vast viewing platform, open-air bar and lounge perched over the sheer cliffs, it’s the perfect place to sit and take in Zambia’s scenic vistas. Winding stone lined pathways lead the way through the grounds from the main lodge, bar, pool and boma area around to the secluded chalets.

There are various walks to explore the gorge and the indigenous forests, where ancient mopanis, white seringas, marulas, leadwoods and African star chestnuts dot the diverse landscape. Beyond the lodge there are a vast array of activities to suit everyone, from thrill seekers to wildlife lovers. Experience the falls in all its wonder on foot, on the water and even from the air, there are more ways than one to discover this part of wild Zambia.

      We will definitely be visiting Taita Falcon Lodge again - and stayva little longer. Lovely facilities - and every attention given to making you welcome. Greetings on arrival- a cheerful hand to carry your luggage; refreshments, hot water bottle in your bed; good food - amazing views; great service. Don't expect TV or hairdryer in your chalet - you are in the African bush surrounded by birdsong or breathless silence and views of the majestic gorges. Wifi when the generator is on. A pair of resident black eagles survey the plunging gorge in the evenings, roosting in their favourite tree...

      A taste of real Africa with the best bar view in the entire region. Great hosts. Good food. Superb view. Friendly staff.A good base to explore and enjoy the area. More personalized than a conventional hotel. We were a family group ranging from age 3 to 60.

      It was magical but don't tell too many people or everyone will go! Thanks also to Safari Now for very professional service.
