The Spirit Of Thorntree River Lodge | Odyssey Safaris

Blending into its beautiful river setting, Thorntree River Lodge draws inspiration from the local culture and customs of Zambia. Eight tented rooms and four family units stretch out along the river’s banks, offering elegant interiors with indoor and outdoor bathrooms, as well as sparkling private plunge pools.

Each unit has its own indoor and outdoor bathrooms, as well as a luxurious private plunge pool. The main lodge consists of a lounge with an open dining area, where the fine dining experience of African cuisine will come to life. The communal deck is set on the edge of the stunning riverside, and is home to a sunken boma area and an infinity pool. Wooden decking floats on the edge of the river, and moves with the water level to create the illusion of sailing a boat, and help to achieve a seamless feel between river and land.

Meals are served in an open dining area that also features a cosy wine cellar ideal for more intimate occasions. Guests can catch up on their reading in the lodge’s library, work out in the gym or enjoy a treatment at the spa while looking out onto magnificent river views. A vast deck at the river’s edge features a sunken boma for outdoor dining and a beautiful infinity pool. The floating wooden deck edges out into the river, blending the edges between land and water. Activities include tours of Victoria Falls, visits to a nearby village, sunset river cruises, fishing and visits to Livingstone Museum.
