A magical place! I wanted to visit Victoria Falls and picked Old Drift Lodge a bit randomly because the place looked inviting... Well, honestly, it was far beyond my expectations. It doesn’t just « looks » inviting. It’s totally and definitely one of a kind. The accommodation is well-thought and all details are covered. The premisses are open in the National Park with wonderful opportunities to meeting wild animals. Security is well assured and I felt safe at all times. The chef is really excellent and everything I tasted was delicious! The place is lovely, accommodations are super, food is delicious and, last but not least, the staff is highly professional, helpful and warm. Cherry on the cake! The perfect spot with the most beautiful views at sunrise and sunset right on the Zambezi River... Pure magic...

Old Drift absolutely exceeded our expectations. The setting is so peaceful and full of wildlife. We will never forget waking to the bellowing of hippos, laughing at the monkeys from our deck, watching the adorable warthogs at lunch, and that hilarious planter-destroying elephant who came calling at dinner. The design of the rooms is a cut above "glamping," even at its very finest. Such a fun luxury to shower/bathe outdoors, on the banks of the Zambezi, and to sleep with the tent rustling overhead. The decor felt authentic, wonderfully retro, calming and luxurious. The outings were terrific and we had our own assigned guide. The entire staff is outstanding, sometimes anticipating our desires before we even knew them ourselves. We always felt so welcome and pampered. Our stay was magical!
