Hotel Information


Tangala House is a luxurious family home on the banks of the Zambezi river. The intermittent home of Ben and Vanessa Parker, the owners of Tongabezi, it lies close to Tongabezi and 15km upstream of Victoria Falls. Designed with a family in mind, the house comes with a 13m private swimming pool and its own gym. Tangala has four bedrooms, three with en-suite bathrooms and raised king-sized beds. Stylishly designed and furnished, the house has featured in House and Garden in the UK and comes with a vehicle and boat, a chef, waiters and private guide - all courtesy of Tongabezi.

The Experience

Ideal for a Zambia family safari, Tangala House sleeps up to six 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 guests to enjoy magnificent views across the Zambezi. The living room has a large sofa and two armchairs and leads onto a 'snuggery' with satellite TV, video, Hi Fi and Jet master fireplace. Most of the rooms have very high thatch ceilings and the passages feature 3-4m high Moroccan arches, with 1m thick walls.

The swimming pool is 13mx4.5m, with an additional shallow area for children and bench seating. In front of the house a grass lawn leads to 250m of private river frontage. There are no neighbors either side and Tangala also features one people-friendly dog, Luna. The veranda easily seats ten and is open thatch 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 for safari holidays and a minimum occupancy of four people.
