Our room was very nice. The view of the waterhole from the hotel was an added feature as there was a wide variety of wildlife. The atmosphere was very pleasant. The food at the restaurant was quite good. Everyone was extremely friendly and overall after almost a month in Africa it was our best hotel experience. Example of the attitude... More

A good hotel that runs a bus to the town and the falls on the hour, every hour of the day. Nice rooms , good staff, other than the falls and the bridge there is not much to do there though. I suggest a one or two night stay.

This place was magnificent! Clean rooms, great restaurant and bar, excellent staff and the animals and view of the waterhole was amazing! Could not recommend this high enough. We also had a 17, 8 and 9 year old who said they would live there. We had an elephant and her calf in patting distance and could see alligators, buffalo, vultures,... More

The spectacular lodge is located just north of Victoria Falls in a natural hill setting overlooking a water hole. As you have breakfast, sit at the bar, or have dinner you will observe the animals as they come to drink. At noon the “vulture restaurant” opens as to-be-discarded food is fed to a multitude of wild birds right below the... More

We've just spent the most amazing week at the Vic Falls Safari Lodge. You are thoroughly spoilt from breakfast (the spread could feed a man for a day) overlooking the watering hole, through the heat of the day (spent lounging by the pool, keeping an eye on wildlife while enjoying the sounds of nature all around) to the cool of...

Room was bright, clean and spacious. The location was very special located by a wild life watering hole that could be viewed from some guest rooms and from the restaurant and bar. The breakfast buffet was ample and a good variety of items. Lunch menu and food was OK. Shuttle to downtown Victoria Falls and BOMA was excellent. I booked... More

The lodge is in the middle of a nature wonderland. The rooms are facing either the bush area or the large waterhole at the back of the property. Late afternoon various elephants and buffalo,to name a few come to drink. From morning to night there are a variety of birds and animals to observe. Sunsets are spectacular! Last evening we... More

Victoria falls Lodge was built facing a water hole where the wildlife come to drink at all hours of the day. It is a good way to observe the animals while in their element without having to disturb them. All the rooms have verandas facing this water hole so you can view the animals from your room. Pure genius! Each... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The superb Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is the destination of choice at the Natural Wonder of the Victoria Falls. Just four kilometers from the thundering splendor of Victoria Falls and the spectacular Zambezi River, the lodge sits high on a plateau bordering the Zambezi National Park. The lodge is created to give the impression of an open-plan tree-house, built on seven levels rising above the pristine gusu bushveld and offering guests views of brilliant sunsets. The resort’s focal feature is a central waterhole which attracts an endless parade of wildlife all year round.Voted Zimbabwe’s Best Safari Lodge of the Year for 16 consecutive years by the Association of Zimbabwe Travel Agents (AZTA), and boasting two of the country’s top restaurants, The Boma – Place of Eating and the a la carte MaKuwa-Kuwa, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is a proud Zimbabwean icon and is the flagship property of the regional hospitality group, Africa Albida Tourism. ... more   less
