"Waterberry Zambezi Lodge review"
We were upgraded to their River Farmhouse, which is a 5-bedroom private house located a couple hundred meters away from the main lodge. It has its own pool and view of the Zambezi River. We also had a dedicated butler/waiter and chef who were with us during the day. Meals were high quality and food was always fresh. We were absolutely spoiled.
We had 2 activities per day at the lodge. Other than visiting the falls on foot and taking a helicopter ride, we spent our time on the Upper Zambezi River. We went fishing and each of us caught our own tigerfish! It was also a good way to get accustomed to the southern Africa wildlife, particularly birds, as directly opposite the lodge was Zambezi National Park in Zimbabwe. Overall, this was a much needed retreat." See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia

"Pretty much perfect"
"Lovely stay at Waterberry Zambezi Lodge"
I was only there for one night but had very pleasant sunset and sunrise boat cruises. The food was excellent. And I was lucky to see 6 rhinos crossing the main road in front of the vehicle during the transfer to the airport." See all these reviews: 11n in Zambia; 9n in Botswana; 1n in South Africa
"Relaxing with lots to do"
The visit to the village / local school gave us a real insight into Zambia and was well worth doing. Victoria Falls was amazing and we opted to visit Livingstone Island and swim to Devils Island - slightly terrifying, but we were in safe hands and so glad we did it. This was followed by a visit to the local market and the Livingstone Museum. The museum was ok but think we had probably had a long enough day, so perhaps with hindsight should have skipped it.
Waterberry Lodge was very peaceful and quiet - the chance to just sit and relax was welcome. Staff cery attentive, food was first class and room very comfortable overlooking the mighty Zambezi! Thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would recommend this place as a serene, calming end to what was a brilliant holiday." See all these reviews: 14n in Zambia

"Incredible lodge, staff, service & location"
Also very thoughtful that she booked us on the boat sundowner the evening of our afternoon arrival. Sunsets all over Africa are stunning but on the Zambezi River they are even more beautiful. Crocodile and hippopotamus sightings with hippo serenades in the evenings. The other included activity that we did was Victoria Falls. We went at the perfect time of year for a dramatic [and soaking] experience.
Our next location was Botswana via the Kazungula ferry border crossing. This lodge was perfectly situated between our Zimbabwe to Zambia bridge border crossing and Kazungula.
I highly recommend this property!" See all these reviews: 3n in Botswana; 3n in Zimbabwe; 2n in Zambia; 1n in South Africa
"Relaxing stay at end of safari"
There are plenty of activities although as we had been to Victoria Falls before we only visited the local village and school which is supported by the lodge. It is well worth going to see the children and their bright classrooms and the excellent work that the staff at Waterbury do to further the education of the local boys and girls.
The grounds are lovely, great views and a good swimming pool to cool down in." See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
