private deck for an evening drink at tongabezi hotel zambia



In the same time zone as Europe, despite being a 9 hour flight.  A long way to travel but utterly worthwhile when you get there.  We are featuring three stunning properties, all overlooking the mighty Zambezi River, and just a few kilometres up stream from the Victoria Falls.
Zambia is worth a visit in its own right, but many prefer to include a visit on the way to or from South Africa.  It’s a short hop from Johannesburg.
