Thorntree River Lodge has 7 standard rooms and 2 suites offering guests a unique African experience. Each room is beautifully appointed and has en-suite facilities. Clients enjoy delicious home-away-from-home meals using fresh produce and served to the highest standards by experienced chefs and waiters. Thorntree River Lodge offers a wide range of activities including sunset cruises, game drives, cultural tours, fishing, and visits to the Falls.

Adventure lovers can experience white water rafting, river boarding, kayaking, Bungi jumping, and sightseeing flights over the Falls.
Located close to Thorntree River Lodge, approximately 10 kilometers from Livingstone, Zambezi Elephant Trails has been established as Zambia’s first ‘Elephant Camp’, offering a once-in-a-lifetime insight into these gentle giants. Together with this ecologically friendly method of game viewing, a strong emphasis is placed on an elephant experience rather than just an elephant ride, and guests are encouraged to interact with these majestic and intelligent African mammals. Guests meet, ride, touch, and learn about the elephants and their willingness to act under instruction. The training techniques used by Zambezi Elephant Trails are based on the ‘perform and reward’ method as opposed to the controversial ‘discipline and submission’ technique commonly associated with Asian Elephants. The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is resident to many species of game, including wild elephants, which the domestic elephants freely interact with. A highlight to all visiting the Livingstone area is Thorntree River Lodge… ‘Home of the Elephants’.
You can participate in the many activities on offer. These can be pre-booked, or you can book upon arrival.
You will be collected by your driver and transferred to Livingstone Airport in time for your return flight to Johannesburg..

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing. Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
Our trip consisted of accommodation and tours in Victoria Falls, transfers to Botswana, accommodation and photography safaris there, then transfers back to Zimbabwe. Transfers, accommodation again in Vic Falls.My communication was with Ludwick who was amazing. He went way above and beyond normal service to make me feel confident in the organisation of our trip
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure.
I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon with the elephants. I rode an 8 year old female, her name is not in my head, and it was magical. She loved her treats at the end of the ride and her trainer was a lovely man. We talked the whole hour and he taught me so much about these magical creatures.
Gertrude was always very prompt in replying during the planning process and very helpful with visa information. This trip to Africa was our first and we started with Kenya and a 10 day safari. We wanted to experience water camps and lodges as well so worked with Falcon to make that happen.
myself and my 13yr old daughter used Falcon Safaris for all our outings as well as airport transfers. Canoeing, Devils Pool visit and Elephant back ride. They were all fantastic especially Vimbai and Edna. We had an amazing time and nothing was too much trouble to sort out for us.
