Mukwa River Lodge
Victoria Falls, Zambia


Mukwa River Lodge is the first property to be launched by Edgar and Aaron in Zambia. (Owners of The Residence Portfolio; Camp Ndlovu and The Residence in Johannesburg). November 2010 was the start of their journey into the hospitality business. Edgar, studied architecture, transformed an old house on the Houghton Estate in Johannesburg into a 5-bedroom B&B which then grew into the boutique hotel it is today. Aaron comes from a financne background but has also worked in London hotels and has a huge passion for gastronomy and local ingredients and is incredibly passionate about training up chefs to create the most delicious dining experience. They subsequently opened Camp Ndovlu, a beautiful camp on a private game reserve in SA, and then decided to spread their wings further into Zsmbia, where they purchased the land in 2017 and created Mukwa River Lodge.

Mukwa River Lodge is a luxury lodge, located on a beautiful stretch of the Zambezi River, 20 km upstream from the Victoria Falls. The Lodge was thoughtfully designed to blend in effortlessly with its tranquil surrounds around Zambezi flood areas and an impressive woodland of Lead Wood,  Jackelberry. Waterberry and Ana Trees. Mukwa River Lodge offers an array of inclusive activities as well as the great number of activities on offer in Livingstone town and around the Victoria Falls. Our recommendation – “The Falls Trio” – Swim, Walk and Fly over the Falls.

Mukwa River Lodge is suited to couples and families alike, offering a variety of room types. There are four river suites (one interlinking family suite) and 2 Island Suites. All suites have inside and outside showers and private plunge pools. Mukwa Garden Cottage is a family cottage, set back from the river in a stunning walled garden, with private plunge pool. The Main area offers lots of nooks and crannies both covered and under the African skies, from where guests can enjoy amazing Zambezi River and Zambezi National Park views.
