The Lodging: The grounds are lovely and the bar/deck/pool area is very comfortable. We took a day off while here and had a nice relaxing time of it. The room was comfortable, but really just a typical hotel room. From our room, the view of the grounds was nice and there was wildlife on the grounds.
The Food: after 9 days of fixed menu meals, it was nice to come to the lodge and have menu options. All of the food was great, if a bit pricey. My friend who lives in Zim says they have the best burger in Vic Falls and mine was certainly good. Their breakfast buffet was included and was plenty for me but you can also order a hot breakfast.
The Location: Easily walkable to the falls, the bridge and 'downtown'. I use quotes for that because there's not much going on in downtown for the average tourist. See the falls, book an excursion and then move on to the next location.
