This hotel is in the perfect location for Victoria Falls. It is 5 mins walk from the falls themselves and within the national park so it does not cost anything to visit the falls as many times as you want. This is the main reason I have given the hotel 4 stars plus the fact that you can see zebra and baboons outside your bedroom window and as you wander around the grounds. Awesome!
The rooms are clean and very adequate, decorated in vibrant colours with a decent bathroom. Do not leave your window open as baboons will find their way in and tear everything apart. It nearly happened to me but I saw them in time and instantly shut the sliding doors onto the garden.
Pool area very clean and quiet with sufficient sun loungers.
My main negative about this hotel is the food in the restaurant at night. We were travelling as a 3 with our 19 year old son and we all thought the food was poor and the most expensive we had on our holiday. We did not choose any drinks other than water as so expensive. I guess we had been spoiled travelling all over South Africa with great food and even greater prices. We do not mind paying for a great meal but meat was tough and chewy and even the fresh cooked stir fry wasn't quite right.. If you get the food right you would have a great hotel.
Just to mention that breakfasts are much better.
Please do not get put off though as you are there for the Vic Falls and not for a gourmet experience.
There is a nice Indian Restaurant in Livingstone which is only a taxi ride away.
