Zambezi River Lodge
No matter what the season, an event at the Zambezi River Lodge inside the Peoria Zoo is one you will remember! Our new banquet hall can hold up to 200 guests and looks out over the lush green vegetation of Africa. Rhinos, giraffes, zebras, lions, mandrill and other wildlife will graze peacefully while your guests
enjoy themselves. The Lodge provides a complementary reception site for many outdoor weddings held in our Zambezi River Village or next door at Luthy Botanical Gardens.
By combining the Lodge and Village areas, we can easily accommodate more than 1000 guests.
Rondavel in Africa!
