Old Drift Lodge

Old Drift Lodge is family friendly, surrounded by the wild and exuberant Zambezi National Park and river. Wake up to a symphony of bird calls, and watch the elephants amble by.

This lodge is built with old world charm, in the centre of a bush paradise, and exudes a harmonious blend between man and nature. A seven kilometer stretch of river flows between the camp and the town of Victoria Falls. A tour of the Falls is within easy reach, and many other activities available in the area. 20180612-4--zwd_Victoria_Falls_OldDriftLodge_outsidebath1920x1080.jpg
