This good value lodge is close enough to Livingstone and the Victoria Falls to enjoy all the activities there, but far enough away to escape the crowds and feel a real sensation of being in the wild.
Standing on the Zambian bank of the Zambezi, just 30 minutes from Livingstone, Waterberry has wonderful views across to Zimbabwe on the opposite bank.
Thatched cottages are set around lovely lawns, and the large terrace, floating sundeck, swimming pool and bar make it an ideal place to relax. The lodge also offers the 'River Farmhouse', built on the site of the original farmhouse on the riverbank - a good option for a family or group of friends.
