Tangala House is a luxurious family home on the banks of the Zambezi River, part of the superb Tongabezi Lodge. It lies 9 miles (15km) upstream of Victoria Falls. The house has four bedrooms, three with ensuite bathrooms, and a 36 ft (12m) private swimming pool.
Stylishly designed and furnished, it has featured in House and Garden magazine in the UK and comes with a vehicle and boat, chef, waiters and private guide. Tangala House sleeps up to 8 and has a children’s playroom and a spacious kitchen-dining room. The rooms are enclosed, with large glass fitted windows to keep out the insects and allow you to enjoy magnificent views across the Zambezi. Over 145 species of birds have been spotted from the kitchen window and elephant herds can often be seen drinking on the opposite bank.
The living room has a large sofa and two armchairs and leads onto a ‘snuggery’ with satellite TV, video, stereo and fireplace. Most of the rooms have high thatch ceilings. The swimming pool is long and has an extra shallow area for children and bench seating.
In front of the house is a grass lawn, 750 ft (250m) of private river frontage, with no properties on either side and Tangala also features three friendly dogs. The veranda easily seats ten, with steps onto the lawn, towards the swimming pool and the terrace, which has an eight seat railway sleeper picnic table.
Tangala House is available to book over the Christmas and Easter Holidays, plus June, July and August. Other dates throughout the year are available on request only. There is a minimum stay of 3 nights and a minimum occupancy of four people.
At twice the height of Niagara, the falls are an awe-inspiring sight, plummeting 100m down into the Batoka Gorge. The falls are on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, and are surrounded by lush rainforest. People also come here to take part in any number of adventure activities.
