“When the GAME came calling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

In the serene environs of the lapping waters of the River Zambesi is this gem that stretches across in a large semi circular hut inspired cocoon. Beautiful, the rooms are spectacular and the food is typical Zimbabwe fare. The service is brilliant. And you might have an altercation with the water buffaloes, wart hogs and mongoose that have made their home in this warm and wonderful haven. Try the Sadza, take a game drive, partake in the tribal dances and loll in their pool. If only all holidays were made of this. A must visit.

Room Tip: Take the rooms facing the water to get an open view of the river. It will also help when u head back...

This hotel gave my family and friends a great experience. We were greeted by the nicest people as soon as we got out the cars and through how whole time at Victoria Falls, we couldn't have asked for better service. Nothing was too much for anyone. The views are incredible, food was great and rooms were lovely. We even had elephants visit us right in front of the restaurant as we were having dinner and breakfast - what an experience. Would thoroughly recommend people to stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view.

Good value for money. Comfortable clean rooms with wi-fi. Nice pool. Good food quality, not a destination restaurant but more than adequate with a very large buffet selection at breakfast. Excellent location by the river, with wildlife wandering on the grounds.

Our family stayed here for 2 nights and while the setting is ideal along the river and the rooms small but functional & clean we had SLOW poor service throughout our stay. River view rooms booked & paid for were not available, air-conditioning didn't work and the service in the restaurant was extremely slow. We had to wait for over an hour for lunch on both days. Dinner one night arrived 2 hours after ordering. As we were going on an early morning activity we ordered a wake up call which didn't occur and our packed breakfast was 30 minutes late which held up our taxi. I don't ever complain but on this occasion felt the need to let the manager know and he offered us a discount on our meal that night BUT no discount appeared on our bill.

Really pleasant hotel with incredibly friendly, pleasant and helpful staff. Very comfortable rooms. Good wi-fi. Ensure you have air con as it is very hot here. The river cruise is a must. Meals are a good buffet - nothing elaborate but good quality food. Room service is good and food quality was excellent

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing on to the pool

An excellent accomodation, large rooms equipped with all appliances of the 21st century including high speed wifi, very friendly and helpful staff and a great view.
I stayed there only 2 days, but I would not have minded a much longer time.
A little bit far off from the town centre, but they have a free shuttle bus leaving every 2 hours.
