Machenje Fishing Lodge

Machenje Fishing Lodge - Day Trips

The lodge is only 100 km from Livingstone, the adventure and tourism capital of Zambia. As well as visiting the Victoria Falls themselves, guests can choose from a wide variety of activities, including sunset river cruises on the Zambezi above the falls, game drives in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park which runs along the riverside (and includes the chance to see the rare white rhino), helicopter or microlight flights above the Falls and white-water rafting (seasonal) or bungee jumping from the more adventurous.

The lodge is close to the meeting point of four countries – Zambia, Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe – and offers easy access to all four countries. A short distance downstream of the Lodge is the Zambia-Botswana border point of Kazungula, and gateway to the Chobe National Park.

The Victoria Falls


Chobe National Park is one of southern Africa’s prime safari destinations. The ‘Chobe Day Trip’ is a popular option, offering a game drive and boat trip combination in one day, or multiple day trips into the Park can be also be undertaken, with overnight bushcamps. Extended trips to the Okavango Delta can also be arranged.

Neighbouring Zimbabwe is accessible either through Botswana, or Livingstone, Zambia (crossing the Zambezi over the Victoria Falls Bridge). The Zimbabwe tourist town of Victoria Falls offers many of the same tourism activities to be found in Livingstone, with addition of the Zambezi National Park, extending some 40 km upstream of the Victoria Falls, and, 200 km to the south, Hwange National Park, one of Zimbabwe’s forgotten safari destinations.
