This hotel was opened in 1995 and currently undergoing renovations. We were initially placed in the 'unrenovated side with no view of the waterhole'. It was very dated, shower squeezed into corner of bathroom. Very disappointed after the quality of accommodation in South Africa. We asked to moved and this occurred without any fuss.
If booking I would recommend that you stipulate you want to a room in the renovated area.
To the management - finish the renovations real quick.
The view from the bar and restaurants over the waterhole great but it was really good to sit on our balcony and watch the watering hole.
The Boma evening was really enjoyable.
It is about a 20 min walk from Victoria Falls, however, there is a shuttle bus into Victoria Falls.
Victoria Falls was fantastic and really enjoyed the 25 min helicopter ride.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Voted the best Safari Lodge in Zimbabwe for 20 years running, the world-famous Victoria Falls Safari Lodge offers easy access to the iconic Victoria Falls, coupled with a wildlife experience that is truly unrivalled. Now in its 22nd year of welcoming guests, the Lodge is built on a plateau overlooking the Zambezi National Park with endless unspoilt views to the horizon, just four kilometers from the Falls. This is the only sunset facing hotel in Victoria Falls, and the newly-renovated rooms and balconies are built up above a central waterhole which attracts herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe, zebra, as well as night-time predators, such as lion and leopard. Our warm and personable staff are our greatest pride. Past guests frequently comment on our team's sublime hospitality and seamless delivery. The main areas of the lodge, such as the MaKuwa-Kuwa restaurant and the homely Buffalo Bar, are rich in ambience and also overlook the central waterhole, where drinks and dinners are often shared with wildlife meandering down to the water each day to quench their thirst. ... more less
