Notice from SAFPAR
As much as we have enjoyed the water levels being lower than normal this year, unfortunately the time has come when the river is at the level where we need to close our white water rafting activities for a while. Therefore, our last day of rafting for the season will be this Saturday, 14th April. We will of course be in touch when we are due to reopen.
Also, please note that on the 1st May our sunset cruise times will amend to their normal winter time as follows:
Pick Up time: 15.30
Boarding time: 15.45
Departure Time: 16.00
Set inside the Oa Tunya National Park, Zambia, 12.5km from Livingstone, a few kilometres upstream from the famous Victoria Falls, Thorntree River Lodge known as home of the elephant - offers a riveting bush experience with breathtaking views over the Zambezi River.
Zambia is regarded as the continent's greatest destination with pristine wilderness areas ranging from the mighty Victoria Falls to the popular National Parks of the Luangwa and Zambezi valleys with great adventure activities and game viewing opportunities. Thorntree River Lodge is perfectly positioned in this area with nine secluded, comfortable and spacious suites, all with private en-suite bathrooms and thatched verandas overlooking the Zambezi.
Meals are served al fresco African style, quietly under the stars on a private and secluded section overlooking the river, or in the main lodge where guests interact socially around the communal dining room table with flickering candles in true African tradition and spirit, sharing their days experiences and travel stories, reminiscing on the lives of famous explorers.
Thorntree River Lodge offers stimulating wildlife adventures: up-close and personal encounters with elephants; cruises on the Lady Livingstone, a three-decker vessel perfect for viewing hippos and crocodiles; walks with lions in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and Masuwe Estate; hikes in the rainforest on the lip of the falls chasm; helicopter 'Flight of Angels' trips with fabulous vistas of the falls, river and its many islands; picnics on Livingstone Island; game drives, canoeing, white water rafting, tandem kayaking, abseiling, and bungi-jumping.
