Activities at Thorntree River Lodge

Cultural Village Visit

Cultural Village Visit

The African Bush Camps Foundation works with the local communities with the goal of community upliftment through tourism by creating long-lasting positive impact. In Livingstone, we have partnered with the Maunga Community and together have identified two focus areas; building a much needed clinic building and providing scholarships to children who are in need and show potential in the classroom. Spend half a day visiting this community during your stay at Thorntree River Lodge and see the impact of the Foundations work.

Fishing

Fishing

Take to the water for an afternoon out on one of our fishing boats. For the adventurous, there is the option of trying your hand at tiger fishing. For the newbies to fishing, experience the joy of relaxing on the river and the excitement of feeling the tug on your rod. Our expert guides will be on hand to help with everything from technic to baiting and releasing the fish back in the water.

Rhino Experience in Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park

Rhino Experience in Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park

The Southern White Rhinos are listed on the WWF's Near Threatened list and therefore the herd in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park are under constant protection and service by the rangers. During your stay at Thorntree River Lodge, you'll get the remarkable privilege of being able to visit these majestic animals. The activity involves a short drive into the park to meet up with the rangers. The rangers will then accompany you on foot to view the rhinos.

Sunset river cruise (our own boats)

Sunset river cruise (our own boats)

Being located on the mighty Zambezi River means that Thorntree River Lodge is ideal for sunset cruises. The section of river flowing past Thorntree River Lodge is quiet and picturesque. We have our own boats, for maximum flexibility and freedom to take in the breathtaking sunsets from the river.

Visit to Livingstone Museum

The excellent Livingstone Museum is divided into five sections covering archaeology, history, ethnography, natural history and art, and is highlighted by Tonga ritual artefacts, a life-sized model African village, a collection of David Livingstone memorabilia and historic maps dating back to 1690.

Visit to Victoria Falls

Visit to Victoria Falls

Thorntree River Lodge is situated in Zambia’s Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, just a short distance from Livingstone and the famous Victoria Falls. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Falls are one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and are a must see whilst in the area.
