Our joyous team welcome guests to a selection of Houses and Cottages, each embellished with interiors lovingly chosen from around Africa. Immerse yourself in nature and experience unique dining and river activities.
Conde Nast may have called Tongabezi one of the top 20 Hotels in the World, but would you believe we started out as tents with bucket showers?
COTTAGES & HOUSES
Tongabezi combines romance and exclusivity with warm and attentive service to make your love story with Africa come true on the Zambezi River.
The five River Cottages and seven Houses are individually styled and cater for two to five guests. Unique touches and charming character are at the heart of the Tongabezi design aesthetic.
Indulge in lavish luxury at the Honeymoon House, wake up amongst the birds in the Tree House or enjoy an alfresco dinner from the private deck of your River Cottage. Spend quality time together with family and friends high above the river at the Dog House or in your own private garden and plunge pool at the Garden House. Each house and cottage has its own valet who acts as a private concierge and takes care of you throughout your stay
