The Lokuthula Lodges

The well-known Lokuthula Lodges are located in a natural bush setting close to the Zambezi National Park and provide room, flexibility, and seclusion. Wi-Fi, air conditioning in the downstairs bedrooms, a three-tiered pool, a poolside bar, a restaurant, a children’s playground, and a TV lounge are all available amenities. The lodges, which can be reserved for bed and breakfast or self-catering, are serviced daily.

Both the award-winning MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant and the Boma – Dinner & Drum Show are located on the same estate. The Lokuthula Lodges, which mean “Place of Peace,” are ideally positioned for families and groups to enjoy the activities in and around the area because they are only 4 kilometers from the Victoria Falls.

Why Lokuthula Lodges?

This self-catering resort consists of 31 rustic thatched lodges, and is located on the same property as the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge. Lokuthula Lodges may also be booked on a bed and breakfast basis.

The lodges border the Zambezi National Park, and a nearby waterhole attracts a wide variety of wildlife, including buffalo, elephant, hyena and several bird species.

Visualisation of Rooms

The Boma Café

On the grounds of the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, next to the Lokuthula Lodges is a casual restaurant called The Boma Café. It is open every day for breakfast, lunch, and light fare served al fresco in a peaceful garden setting, close to a swimming pool and children’s play areas.

The continental breakfast buffet is served from 7 am to 10 am and includes pastries, breads, cereals, yoghurt, seasonal fruits, drinks, cold cuts, and cheeses. Additionally, a variety of cooked breakfasts are available.

These include the vegetarian Boma omelette, which is topped with a poached egg and includes grilled mushroom, tomato, potato, and brinjal, and the mixed breakfast pleasure, which offers a choice of eggs along with sausage, bacon, potato, mushrooms, and beans.

Up to 4.30 p.m., lunch and light fare are available, including the popular Boma game subway, which offers guests a choice of pork, kudu, or eland, as well as the chief’s burger and a poolside snack basket. To entice those with a sweet craving, a variety of desserts are also offered.

Experiences

Onsite Waterhole

On a plateau overlooking a waterhole, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is home to a variety of wildlife, including elephant, buffalo, kudu, waterbuck, impala, as well as other bird species.

From the lodge’s viewing platform, pool deck, or while enjoying a meal or drink at the Buffalo Bar and MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant, guests can observe game in the waterhole.

The majority of the lodge’s rooms also have a direct view of the waterhole, allowing visitors to enjoy wildlife from the comfort of their balconies.

Vulture Culture Experience

Experience the captivating scene of vultures descending to feed on meat scraps and bones from the nearby restaurants, a daily spectacle at 1pm right in front of Victoria Falls Safari Lodge.

While giving visitors a chance to spot various vulture species like white-headed, hooded, lappet-faced, and white-backed vultures, this additional feeding initiative plays a vital role in the preservation of these remarkable yet endangered birds.

Starting with an educational briefing beneath the lodge, the free activity caters to all ages. It begins by discussing the ecological significance of vultures and the challenges they face. Guests then embark on a short walk along a bush path to a hide, offering a close-up view of the vultures during their feeding time.

Vulture populations are dwindling due to several human-induced factors, including power line electrocution, diminishing safe food sources, poisoning, and the use of their body parts in traditional medicines.

Siduli Hide

Sitting in the Siduli Hide at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge waterhole provides the amazing chance to observe wildlife up close and in detail for an extended period of time.

Visitors are hidden inside the hide, which is disguised to look like a termite mound. From there, visitors may get up close and personal with vast herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as kudu, warthogs, crocodiles, marabou storks, vultures, and other animals.

Charles Brightman, a licensed guide, runs the hide sit, which is perfect for keen photographers and wildlife enthusiasts looking for a distinctive and exclusive way to enjoy wildlife while visiting Victoria Falls.

The two-hour activity is best completed in the early morning or late afternoon and is open to groups of up to six people.

Bird Hide

A bird hide sit at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is a terrific way to pass an hour and is appropriate for all age groups. You can view a range of different species there, such as guinea fowl, kingfishers, shrikes, and doves.

There are nature trails all around the bird hide where you can frequently see bushbuck and warthog.

Visitors are free to explore the bird hide and the nature trails at their own pace.

Remember to pack a cap, drink, and binoculars.

For groups, special arrangements may be made.
