Wow, what a truly superb stay in Zimbabwe. I travelled with my mom and we received such a warm welcome at the Safari Lodge reception upon arrival and were given a quaint room overlooking the waterhole. We were blown away by the friendliness and hospitality of the staff, so refreshing! The restaurant meals were 5 star and the Boma was... More

The lodge runs a free shuttle service to all the important attractions. Along the way, it stops by the craft market, city centre, some landmark hotels and the Victoria Falls. If you are on free and easy, you can book your tours from either the hotel tour desk (which cost a bit more) or take the shuttle to the city... More

The Lodge is an experience in and of itself. The central part includes the registration and two restaurants, TV room, small shop, and Internet kiosks. The rooms are right and left of the central area. The roof is metal covered with thick thatch. It is windowless and thatch covered in the restaurant, bar and halls. Therefore, you can easily see...

From the moment we arrive at the Safari Lodge we knew we were going to enjoy our stay. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived and the briefing we received on the workings of the place was thorough and easy to understand. The rooms were more than acceptable and the view was just glorious. The balcony from our room looked... More

We stayed here for 2 nights/3 days and had a wonderful time. The lodge is perfect for access to the falls. We had purchased a package which worked well for us and included attending the BOMA, a sunset cruise and a dinner at the hotel. Our room overlooked the pond and were able to sit and watch a mini safari... More

The Lodge was everything we had hoped for and more. We only wished we could have stayed longer. The staff were great and very friendly? They made it easy to arrange for the Gorge Swing activity (highly recommended) and the shuttle bus into town and to the Falls was very efficient and easy. We went to a restaurant in town... More

Victoria Falls Lodge is a lovely place to stay while visiting the area. The unique "vulture feeding", the hyenas calling at night, elephants at the watering hole all created another different experience on our month long sojourn in Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. Yes, it is a little tired, the mosquito nets need to be replaced, the housekeeping was inconsistent... More

This Hotel is truly unique ! The staff are extremely courteous and helpful. The views are unique as one can spend hours looking at the animals that come to the pond to drink. The staff loaned me their binoculars to get a better view of the animals. I am not sure why but there were no TV's in the rooms.... More
