A fine base for seeing Victoria Falls, this quiet riverside camp is marvelously secluded, on a wide bend of the Zambezi about 30 minutes outside the busy tourist hub of Livingstone. Vervet monkeys frolic on grassy paths connecting the property’s five tents and six cottages, which offer front-row views of hippos, elephants, and birdlife in or along the river. Besides tours of Vic Falls (by foot, boat, helicopter, or microlight aircraft), the staff can organize boating safaris on the Zambezi, game drives in a nearby reserve, and a visit to the lodge’s own Tujatane Trust School (a T+L Global Vision Award winner in 2012). The same company also operates Sindabezi, a smaller (five-tent) and more elemental camp set on a private island, just 20 minutes up the Zambezi from Tongabezi. (Many guests stay at both.)
