Old Drift Lodge, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe


With a constant eye toward Africa’s pristine, singular natural beauty, Old Drift Lodge is an upscale haven upstream of iconic Victoria Falls, on the banks of the Zambezi River.

It’s the ideal choice for those seeking an authentic Africa experience while enjoying the modern amenities of a luxury lodge.


Old Drift Lodge’s accommodations take every opportunity to show off the property’s unparalleled location on the Zambezi River. Suites that conjure daydreams of the golden days of the safari era overlook the majestic river. The Family Suite, with its brass basins and billowing mosquito nets, provides an elegant, yet comfortable refuge in the heart of the bush, promising delicious naps post-safari and memorable, shared family experiences.

For those seeking privacy, the Star Suite sits in a prime location within the lodge with spectacular river and wilderness views. It’s the perfect selection for honeymooners or for couples on a romantic getaway. The Standard Suites at the lodge combine luxury, natural beauty, and the chance for wildlife encounters, suited for an immersive safari experience near Victoria Falls.


Every detail has been carefully considered at Old Drift Lodge to provide a well-rounded safari experience for all guests. While the wildlife will always steal the show, the natural beauty and peace of the Victoria Falls area and African bush creates a blank slate from which guests can tailor a stay that suits their interests. All-inclusive lodge activities include a tour of magnificent Victoria Falls, exhilarating game drives through mesmerizing landscapes, the opportunity to eat and drink on the edge of the breathtaking Batoka Gorge at the Lookout Café, a river safari, and a walking safari option. And, as befits the quintessential Zimbabwean safari experience, riverside sundowners at the falls are eclipsed only by the golden hues of the African sunset.
