Just up the Zambezi River from the famous Victoria Falls is Victoria Falls River Lodge, which is an ideal spot for fans of hippos, crocodiles and warthogs - as well as relaxing alongside the river..
We were picked up by boat for the short trip to the camp. Although the camp is also accessible by road, the water transfer is more interesting and enjoyable - and impressive on the broad Zambezi River.
Spacious enclosed lodges, open-air dining area, really helpful service - and a wonderful location on the river: it's a pleasant change from the inland camps.
The warthogs come right into camp, crossing under and feeding near the raised wooden walkway. You hear hippos all night, and must have an escort back to your lodge after dark and after dinner.
A river excursion gives visitors a chance to spot the crocs on little islands or on the shore, sunbathing with open jaws, and to watch a beautiful sunset while sipping a drink and nibbling on a snack.
Vic Falls is only a few minutes away, when you feel like a bit of shopping or getting up close and personal to this famous attraction.More
