TAITA FALCON LODGE

Where adventure and serenity meet

Your safari experience at Taita Falcon Lodge is inspired by the lifestyle of the rare and endangered raptors that visit here.

Living high on the gorge with breath taking views, it’s a peaceful and serene existence interspersed with moments of rushing speed and adventure around Victoria Falls. That’s what we want a perfect safari at Taita to be like – exciting activities and experiences on the Zambezi and around the Falls with peaceful and relaxing downtime at the lodge with good food, kind people and amazing views.

What makes Taita Falcon Lodge different?

We do things a little differently at Taita Falcon Lodge compared to many other lodges and camps around Livingstone and Victoria Falls.

Here’s just a sample of what we mean:

Open Air Chalets 

Instead of the typical “brick and aircon” structures so typically found in the area, our chalets are built in the Zambian bush camp style – natural materials and open air. It keeps you connected to the wild and you can hear the river and birds and feel the air moving around you.

Small and Intimate

The lodge is small and intimate we only have 6 chalets sleeping 14 at a push. We like it this way because it means we can give you more attention and there is very little chance of some noisy crowd ruining your break

Close to Victoria Falls

We’re close to the action but far from the noise. We are 30 mins on a gravel road from the Victoria Falls so visiting the Falls, Livingstone Island, sunset cruises and the like are all close BUT our location is too far to be affected by the helicopters, hooting buses and crowds.

How do you get to Taita Falcon Lodge?

Taita is located in the heart of Zambia, downriver from the mighty Victoria Falls and a short drive from the vibrant town of Livingstone. The nearest airport is just outside Livingstone and from there it’s a 45minute drive to Taita Falcon.

“For just a day visit, afternoon actually, Taita Falcon is amazing and beautiful. The views from the ridge top dining room are unparalleled. The service staff is humble and very friendly, as is the proprietor.”

Taita is located 30 min from one of the most iconic Natural Wonders of the world – Victoria Falls.

Victoria Falls is a waterfall located on the Zambezi River, on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is one of the largest waterfalls in the world, and is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

The mist created by the falls can be seen from a great distance, and they are a popular tourist attraction in southern Africa.
