If you are wondering where to stay when visiting The Victoria Falls, we went on a field trip to Victoria Falls in June – and brought back some great insider tips from our camp and lodge visits! In this blog post series we take you to three Victoria Falls accommodations which are highly recommended!

— TIP # 2: OLD DRIFT LODGE —
It took us about 15 minutes from Victoria Falls town to Old Drift Lodge by road, entering the Zambezi National Park through the Victoria Falls gate. Ideally, guests take the boat from the Wild Horizons Jetty (located just before the entrance of the Zambezi National Park) to camp, which is an about 10 minutes boat ride, but we took the back road for the fun of it!
On arrival we were met by Bright, who is one of the managers at the Old Drift Lodge, and a refreshing welcome drink.
Activities include nature walks, boat cruises, fishing and game drives. The lodge has 2 luxurious boats (that take 8 guests each), which are used for the return transfers to and from the Victoria Falls Jetty as well as the boat activities.
