New Zambia lodge offers rhino tracking

By Ashworth Africa, September 2, 2017

Thorntree River Lodge, situated in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, Zambia, close to Victoria Falls, has opened its doors, offering guests an opportunity to observe and walk with the park’s White rhinos.

African Bush Camps took over an existing lodge called Thorntree River Lodge and  completely renovated and rebuilt the property, knocking-down the majority of the existing infrastructure.

The lodge has been built on the banks of the Zambezi River with an environmentally-conscious design. It consists of 10 suites in total, eight being luxury suites, accommodating two guests per unit, and two family suites, with four beds in each family unit.
 

On the edge of the riverside is a communal deck, with a sunken boma (outdoor eating area), as well as an infinity pool. There are wooden decking floats on the edge of the river, which move up and down with the water level.

The lodge also offers cruises down the Zambezi on a private boat, game drives in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, cultural village visits, fishing, visits to the Livingstone Museum and white rhino tracking on foot.

There are currently seven white rhino in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, each under 24 hour armed guard. The lodge is offering guests the opportunity to observe the rhino on foot, allowing them to get up close and personal. Guests will be accompanied by professional guides who will assess the situation and take the guests to a safe distance to view the rhinos.
