Refurbished 5-star lodge near Victoria Falls to reopen in March 2022

Not all is doom and gloom in our beloved Zimbabwe. There might be some light for the hospitality industry as Batoka Hospitality Zimbabwe in Victoria Falls acquires three lodges. While many businesses have been adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, not only in Zimbabwe but in most parts of the continent, Batoka Hospitality has been extensively refurbishing and expanding.

  • The refurbished Batoka Zambezi Sands River Lodge will be the first to be reopen in March, followed by its other siblings, Batoka Gorges Lodge, and Little Lodge later in the year.
  • The 24-bed lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River, one hour away from the Victoria Falls, has been redesigned by renowned South African interior designer Yvonne O’Brien.
  • The refurbished river lodge features a spa and fitness centre, while each suite has its own private plunge pool and a view of the Zambezi River.

Our vision is to become a leading luxury safari company on the African continent, but we also want to create opportunities for economic growth in the communities we build in. We are empowering the African dream of success through ecotourism and hospitality.

As much as we enrich the lives of our guests through a truly authentic African experience, we are building self-sustaining communities across Africa through our brand.
