What a place....absolutely beautiful, probably the best lodge we’ve stayed in, in Zimbabwe! Friendly, efficient staff and great food. Rooms were very spacious with all mod cons, very comfortable bed and beautifully decorated. We’ll be back to stay in September to do some rafting!
It was a beautiful weekend from the time JB picked us up at the airport until he dropped us off. JB's warmth made me content that as the holiday planner of the household, I had done well. Farai and the team welcomed us at the hotel, and the first cocktail was a winner. We settled in well and it was amazing how beautiful, comfortable and luxurious the suite was. I couldn't wait to enjoy the outdoor shower and tub while taking in the views of the Zambezi River. The cookies in the jar are to die for, certainly not for weight watchers. Lesley, Farai and the team also did a great job with planning out our activities and they didn't disappoint. From the sunset cruise to the afternoon game drive, ot was very relaxing and the animals and birds didn't disappoint either. The sunset picnic by the beach was my major highlight, what a sight it was. We watched the sunset while chillint and snacking overlooking the Zambezi River, I was giggling and blushing most of the time, it was beautiful and a perfect way to end a day spent watching vultures, light lunch at Lookout café and touring the Falls. Waking up to the sound of hippos, birds and warthogs was a much needed change from the hustle and bustle of Harare, Old Drift Lodge gave us joy and beautiful memories were created. We look forward to returning in the near future, I have a few more boxes to tick.…
I am pretty certain that there isnt another place in VIC FALLS like the OLD DRIFT LODGE. I mean the fact that you are at the VERY SPOT .. where they used ot cross borders, trade etc cannot be beaten location wise, but the decadence, service, and value for money .. is what also swept me off my feet. A truly unique location ... YOU HAVE TO GO !
I used Old Drift Lodge as the starting point for a prolonged trip to Zimbabwe and my stay was extremely pleasant. The lodge is elegantly decorated and blends well with its surrounding along the banks of the Zambesi river. The tents are very nice, complete with plunge pool and both outdoor and indoor bathing options. What could be better than relaxing on the deck while hearing the grunting of hippos and calls of strange birds? ! The activities offered include game drives, river cruises, and trips to see the falls. Highly recommended!
Old Drift Lodge is an incredibly place. The warm, attentive, and gifted guides and staff will make sure you have an unforgettable stay. The location is perfect - you feel like you and your travel companions are alone on the river in a beautiful suite. You have a perfect balance of nature and luxury at your fingertips.
