The Wallow is a new safari style lodge set on the banks of the Masuwe River within the Wild Horizons Wildlife Sanctuary, just five kms from bustling Victoria Falls. It is the perfect base to take in the expansive views of Batoka Gorge, one of the greatest sights in Vic Falls. This peaceful sanctuary makes an ideal base recharge before or after a safari, with a full range of exciting activities within easy reach.

Private wooden viewing decks, outdoor showers, a sunken fire- pit area and sparkling rim flow pool add to the ambience of this very spacious establishment. Safari tradition dictates sundowners with a view – and the impressive views of the ageless Batonka Gorse is the perfect setting to do just that.
The main lodge at the Wallow consists of a sizeable lounge and dining area with eagle eye views of the Masuwe River and natural surrounding area. Unwind around the clear rim flow swimming pool in the heat of the day and in the evening, as the sun starts to dip behind the horizon, refreshing cocktails can be enjoyed on the main wooden deck before settling around the sunken firepit to reminisce about your day’s adventures in Africa. Wi-Fi is available throughout the main area and a small library, for those guests wanting to relax with a good book serves as another ideal spot to put up your feet.
