Tangala House is unique, the only house available for rent on the banks of the Zambezi river near the Victoria Falls. 15 kms upstream of the Victoria Falls and ideally located for exploring the area with all its many activities, the house overlooks the Zambezi National Park.

The house is ideal for families and is designed to keep insects out, with glass windows all round. Large herds of elephant often come down to drink on the opposite bank and hippopotamus are regularly seen and heard. There is fantastic birdlife, with over 145 species to date spotted from the kitchen window. The living room has a large sofa and two armchairs and leads onto a ‘snuggery' with satellite TV, video, Hi Fi and jetmaster fireplace. Most of the rooms have very high thatch ceilings and the passages have large 3-4m high 'Moroccan’ arches, with 1m thick walls. The swimming pool is 12m, with an extra shallow area for children and bench seating. In front of the house is a grass lawn, which drops 1m to 20 m of wild riverine grassland and then to the Zambezi River. The house has 250m of private river frontage, with no properties on either side. The veranda easily seats ten, and is open thatch with steps on to the lawn and towards the swimming pool and the terrace, which has a railway sleeper picnic table, seating eight.
