I booked a safari holiday with Yellow Zebra tour operators, but wanted to spend a few days in Livingstone to visit the Falls, do 1/2 day volunteering with Lion Encounter/Lion Alert. James at Yellow Zebra recommended The Waterberry as an alternative to the more expensive establishments.
I am really happy that I followed this recommendation because the Waterberry is all and more that the reviews say. Warm welcome - like coming home to family after a long trip - excellent food, spacious and comfortable rooms, lovely bathrooms, enchanting gardens and grounds, and some of the best staff that I have encountered in my Africa (and elsewhere) travels.
A fabulous place to either start or end a safari holiday - easy access to Vic Falls activities, sunset cruises from the lodge's dock, good company and new friends. Try and visit the school the lodge supports - it is worth the visit! And now that the River farmhouse is open and ready to receive guests, I will be gathering up my family and coming back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A secluded, family-friendly lodge in the heart of the wild on the banks of the Zambezi. Good food, lovely en suite rooms, friendly, helpful staff. Come here and enjoy river cruises, fishing and birdwatching plus all the activities around Victoria Falls, or just sit back and enjoy the view. ... more less
