Beautiful setting on hill overlooking a watering hole. First class amenities an outstanding service. Boma was excellent with a wide variety of foods, native music and dancing. Don't miss a drink in the bar while looking at animals.

The hotel is located on a hill overlooking the Zambezi national park. From the terraces and most of the rooms you have a view on the waterhole where buffalos, springbok, marabou birds and whartdogs come to drink. The restaurants serve tasty meals and a large breakfast buffet. The hotel features a 'boma' which is widely known in the area and... More

Located 4Km outside of Victoria Falls town set on a hillside overlooking the savanah and waterhole. Large in comparison to all other lodges we stayed in - this is perhaps more of a 'hotel' with conferencing facilities and 70 rooms though does still retain the 'safari lodge' appeal with its views and wildlife roaming close by. Room was very comfortable... More

This was a very pleasant hotel that I wished that I had spent more time there. There are plenty of things to do in and around Victoria Falls and I only scratched the surface by visiting the Falls, flying over them and cruising the Zambezi. We also went to the Boma restaurant, which is not only a great feed, but... More

Zimbabwe was our second stop on our African vacation! This hotel is situated 15 minutes from the airport and about 5 minutes from Victoria Falls.

After touring South Africa and then traveling to Zimbabwe I finally felt like I was in Africa. This hotel is wonderful! Rooms are clean and ALL have amazing views. Each room over looks the watering hole. There are tons of animals all day around it. I could spend hours watching the watering hole. The restaurant is similar to USA prices.... More

This hotel is on the outskirts of town with a complimentary shuttle available. We loved the solitude and ambiance of this hotel. The main reception and restaurant area is built like a tree house, it is amazing. The view from all of the rooms overlooks a watering hole which is visited by many different animals. Our accommodation was very comfortable... More

I doubt there are many other hotels in the world of this size that can offer such a spectacular animal viewing experience as this hotel. The structure of the hotel, with tiered flooring is perfectly laid out to view the game in the water hole below, like an animal amphitheatre. Initially didn't expect much action at the water hole, but... More

This lodge is truly wonderful. The rooms were excellent and clearly refurbished recently. Great restaurant and bar where we spent each afternoon overlooking the animal life at watering hole and watching the sunset. The Mosquitos were not as bad as we thought they might be and the beds seemed to all have nets around them. The staff were all very... More

Would highly recommend this place! We spent 3 nights & wish we stayed longer! Decks, pool & rooms overlooked the watering hole were we could sit & watch the animal over breakfast or with cocktails watching the amazing sunsets! Great thatched roof ,open beamed design with great food & service!! Free shuttles into town were great benefit!

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
