Old Drift Lodge offers family-friendly accommodation with an air of opulence and grace, in a wild and exuberant Zambezi National Park, Victoria Falls. The lodge lies upstream of the iconic Victoria Falls, on the banks of the Zambezi River. Old Drift lodge boasts luxury accommodation overlooking the pristine Zambezi National Park, a mere 7 kilometres from the mighty Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. This Lodge is nestled within a wild paradise frequented by elephant, buffalo, herds of sable, eland, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck and impala.
The main lodge area has 360-degree views, North facing onto the Zambezi & South facing onto a waterhole. 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.
The soil upon which this lodge is built has been fertilized by a history of hard work and innovation. Old Drift Lodge is a bush paradise that exudes an old world charm amidst modern luxuries; a symbol of the harmonic existence that can be achieved between man and nature.
The suites boast unparalleled views of the majestic Zambezi River and are brimming with the old world elegance of a bygone safari era. Entering through a glass door guests are transported to a lavish space of gentle browns, copper, brass and dappled wood that echoes the wilderness outside.
The family suite consists of two inter-leading bedrooms, separated by a sliding canvas door. Luxuriously appointed and fully air-conditioned, the suites provide elegant refuge in the heart of the bush. Brass basins, billowing mosquito nets, and soft lighting mirror the rich beauty of the remarkable river setting and offer a memorable, shared family experience.
An outside deck complete with a crystal clear plunge pool, claw-footed bathtub, sun loungers and outdoor shower allows families to make the most of the surrounding beauty and enjoy the warmth of the sunshine in complete privacy.
