“Luxury Lodge Near Victoria Falls”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

My husband and I kicked off our honeymoon with two wonderful nights at Victoria Falls River Lodge; it was the perfect beginning to our trip. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a drink and a friendly smile from Amanda (Lodge Manager) and the other staff members.

The view of the Zambezi River from the lobby/common area is lovely. Both the lobby/common area and our room, which was very spacious, are nicely decorated in a modern, but slightly rustic outdoor bush motif.

The river cruise was amazing; great game viewing (elephants, hippos, several species of birds, crocodiles, baboons, impalas, etc.) and our guide, White, was warm and knowledgeable.

The food was good; we were impressed by the richness and flavor of the soups served at dinner and I fell in love with the Crunchies, a breakfast bar similar to a granola bar.

It was exciting and nerve-racking to see animals wandering around the Lodge.

Overall, we had a relaxing and enjoyable experience at the Lodge.

Victoria Falls River Lodge was a wonderful experience and its location truly stunning. The accommodation was truly lovely and the beds so comfortable. The Staff were so welcoming from the time we stepped off the vehicle and our whole stay was a real delight, and we were made to feel so relaxed by the easy, welcome and engaging manner of all the staff and the service throughout was very personal. Well done and thank you to all the staff and Clever and White on the boat. The evening river cruises are truly stunning and in such a wonderful boat, one can only feel very pampered and special. The un-rushed and relaxed atmosphere made for a wonderful visit and set in the National Park made it very special and where we were lucky to see a large amount of game. The transport provided to reach the Victoria Falls was most appreciated and really made the whole stay very special. Already there is talk of "when to return". An inspired building Mark - we were so impressed. What vision you have. Thank you everyone for making our recent visit so memorable.

Room Tip: As the chalets are spaced well apart, so if walking a distance is a matter to consider, do ask to...

Victoria Falls River Lodge provides an excellent experience in Victoria Falls. It's located 10 minutes away from the city but inside the national park where you can feel the wild life very closely. It offers game drives and boat cruises every day.
- the lodge arranges all the activities and guests don't need to worry about absolute nothing.
- staff is extremely kind, careful and worried about guests welfare.
- rooms are very large with beautiful resting area and a nice balcony to the zambezi river.

An unforgettable and relaxing experience that we want to repeat as soon as possible.

Room Tip: all rooms are equally good but the nearest to the main area seem to be quieter with less animals wal...

Wow! Amazing accommodations, delicious food, a beautiful setting, and amazing staff. There is not a better hotel in the area. We enjoyed first class service with personal attention to every detail. Sabrina, Kate, Shane, Clever and the rest of the team make you feel as if the lodge is yours! And the animals....the game drives and views are incredible. No better spot in Zimbabwe!

We were made to feel very welcome on arrival and the setting is really restful. The rooms are wonderful equipped and restful. One cannot but have a good sleep on the beds and pillows that are provided. Hippos were heard during both nights. The meals were beautifully presented and prepared. The sunset river cruise was also very relaxing. The down side is that it is far from town. This did not worry us as we have been to the falls numerous times - but for some of our friends they found it limiting as they could not wander around town, rest and then wander again. However if you want to feel as if you are really on a safari in Africa and do not mind being far from the maddening crowd then this is a little gem of a place.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms would be wonderful

Spent two nights at the lodge. What a wonderful experience. From the moment we arrived until we left we were overwhelmed by the most friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Sean and Clever were knowledgeable and informative guides always willing to impart their knowledge of the area, yet happy to also let us sit in silence to enjoy the solitude. Everything we needed was in the room (tent?) which was immaculately tended. The food and service in the restaurant was 1st class. Well done to all. It is a well run establishment that we will recommend to all and sundry and which we cannot wait to visit again.

This was a nice getaway from the main area, 25min from downtown and 30min from the Falls.
The staff was all friendly however the Manager Amanda needs to change her attitude with guests and should pay attention to their request. She promotes that the Hotel will drop and pick up guest in town however, when we requested a pick up she denied us and told us that we had to wait almost 3hrs when another group was heading back to the hotel. With the amount of money you pay, No should not be an answer esp if a manager promotes a 30min pick-up time when requested. Many other things with poor communication with Amanda throughout stay. AVOID HER!!!! Your vacation will be much pleasent.
