We are looking forward to assisting you in planning for your ‘big day’. Since we are located adjacent to The Luthy Botanical Gardens, we can help you plan your entire wedding and reception in two very unique venues.
Zambezi River Lodge
Located right next to Luthy Botanical Gardens inside The Peoria Zoo, The Zambezi River Lodge is a new facility seating up to 160 people. It has a cathedral ceiling, thatch roof, exposed timber construction, a huge fireplace, heated floors, and state of the art restroom facilities.
Our boardwalk and plaza offer breathtaking views of the new Africa! exhibit, during the day and night! A beautiful backdrop for an unforgettable, unique wedding venue.
