Zambia Hosts One of the World’s ‘Top 20 Hotels’

It’s official, Zambia now has a new claim to fame and can proudly boast that – according to 
Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List for 2018 – we host one of the top 20 hotels in the World! The luxurious and romantic hideaway, Tongabezi Lodge
 has propelled Zambia into the limelight for those travel hungry subscribers that enjoy some of the finer things in life with a big side-order of adventure.

Tongabezi Lodge is tucked away on the banks of the Zambezi River, just upstream from Victoria Falls. It offers a unique ‘barefoot luxury’ experience, where indulgence and tradition are perfectly blended to create something so special that

 it manages to grab your heart and forever holds a little place in it.

Want to know why they made the grade?


Elegant and lavish accommodation offers private cottages and themed houses which include ‘The Tree House’ – set against the basalt rock bed in the branches of three riverine Ebony trees, ‘The Nut House’ with its private infinity plunge pool,

 and ‘The Dog House’ which sits on elevated stilts overhanging the Zambezi itself. All rooms enjoy spectacular views of the Zambezi or are nestled away for that secluded hideaway feel.


The idea is that you can do as much or as little as you choose at Tongabezi. You can put your feet up and laze for the entirety of your luxurious stay or take part in some of the bucket-list activities!

A trip to Victoria Falls is surely not to be missed and a dip in Devil’s Pool if you dare! You can enjoy tours of Livingstone Island, romantic private sand bar picnics, a sunrise or sunset boat cruise, game drives, an introduction to the Samonga village

 and Tujatane (the Tongabezi Trust School). If you are still craving more action – then take a helicopter or microlight flight over Victoria Falls, or even try white-water rafting.

Government and stakeholders have been urged to explore the tourism potential on Lake Tanganyika in Mpulungu District to positively contribute to the growth of the sector.

Mpulungu Habour Authority (MHA) manager, Dennis Kaluba said there was need for all stakeholders to explore the tourism potential on Lake Tanganyika, the longest fresh water Lake in the world and surrounds Zambia, Tanzania, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Mr Kaluba said if explored, Lake Tanganyika could contribute to the growth of the tourism sector in Zambia as it had more than 350 species of fish.

He said the fish on the Zambian side had been depleted due to poor fishing methods and that only exotic ones were remaining.

"Lake Tanganyika is a fresh water body which is beckoning investment in tourism. The water body has more than 350 species of fish of which most are exotic, including the gold fish which is beautiful to look at," he said.

Mr Kaluba said the lake had a number of bays around it which could attract tourists across the world.

He further said modernisation of the infrastracture at the habour was progressing well, and that the consultant engaged was expected to conclude the detailed engineering designs early this year.

Mr Kaluba said Government recently procured ultramodern equipment at a cost of US$5 million which would be installed at the habour.

He said the port currently had three folk lifts, a reach stacker and a crawler crane, and was now able to handle containers going out of the country.

The newest high speed adventure to feature on the Zambezi: jet boating. Hi-speed jet boats propel you over the rapids and launch you through the gorges.


Along with great game viewing and birding, many of the National Parks offer waterways with excellent fishing opportunities. The Zambezi has produced record tiger fish, while Lake Tanganyika is infamous for the Nile perch and Goliath tiger, which can weigh up to 35 kg.!


Spectacular golf courses abound in Zambia. There are courses near Livngstone, Kasaba Bay, Mufulira, Chingola, Kitwe and Ndola. For a golfing thrill, try the acclaimed Lusaka Golf Course, which is on the circuit of the annual PGA Safari tour.
