Imagine waking up in a lofty treehouse on Kandahar Island to the sounds of the might Zambezi lapping gently below your bed? Fish eagles calling, hippos wallowing and elephants drinking quietly on the opposite bank.
Just across from her sister camp, across the Zambezi River, lies the ultimate private dream. Victoria Falls Island Lodge is a slightly smaller camp to the larger Victoria Falls River Lodge. Each room is built upon raised decking and is described as Treehouse Suites. Every room has its own private en-suite facilities, private decking and private plunge pool.
Perfect for couples and older families, this small and discreet lodge has fantastic vistas of the river from each room as well as the main dining and lounge area. Connected by a raised winding walkway, weave your way beneath the private Kandahar Island’s leafy canopy in search of that well-deserved gin and tonic whilst you listen to the hum of the Falls in the distance.
Kandahar Island is reached only by boat ride from the mainland, ensuring guests a completely exclusive and private experience. only a short boat ride back to the River Lodge jetty for game drives and only a ten-minute drive to the Rain Forest at the Falls. Together with the Victoria Falls National Park, this protected area covers 56 000 hectares and game viewing is excellent.
