Songwe Village

Songwe Village is located on 300 acres of private land, 5km downstream from Victoria Falls on the Zambia side of the Zambezi Gorge.

Songwe Village is located on 300 acres of private land, 5km downstream from the Victoria Falls on the Zambia side of the Zambezi River, perched 300 feet above the deeply incised and rugged Batoka gorge. Songwe Village is built to resemble a traditional Zambian village and the atmosphere is just as peaceful, calm and relaxed as that of the local villages.

Accommodation

Songwe has 8 guest huts in an oval pattern, each named after past chiefs of the Mukuni people.  The huts are built in the traditional style. Each hut has a flushing toilet and amenities and comes complete with foam bath, soap, body lotion, and shower caps. The huts are spacious with a blend of modern and traditional furniture. The showers and baths are set on the edge of the Batoka gorge enabling Songwe to claim the best bathroom views in the world!
