After a complete rebuild, Thorntree River Lodge re-opened to guests in May 2017. The new lodge is an attractive building composed largely of wood and glass, with extensive social areas and suites arranged along the banks of the Zambezi River.

Victoria Falls and its many associated activities including Falls tours, cruises, bungee jumping and helicopter flights, is just 12kms away, while the lodge is within Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park where you can enjoy game drives and go rhino tracking on foot. Other options such as fishing trips, sunset cruises on the lodge's own boat, and village visits can be arranged by the helpful staff.

There is plenty of room at the lodge for relaxation. The lounge has comfy sofas and a centrepeice fireplace, you can enjoy TV and use the Wi-Fi in the library, and head outdoors to cool off in the swimming pool and enjoy sundowner drinks round the boma fire or by the firepit deck built out over the water. There is a large dining area with a feature wine cellar, and other meals are served out on the decks within sight of the river. The gym offers exercise options, with the spa providing more relaxing downtime.

Suites are set on woden decks, and each has its own veranda overlooking the river, complete with a plunge pool. Inside the bedroom includes a sitting area and leads to an en-suite bathroom with a shower and deep bathtub, which in turn connects to an outdoor shower. There are 2 family suites, each made up of 2 en-suite bedrooms and a linked walkway.
