We had lunch at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge. We did not stay at the hotel. Our guide timed our visit so that we were there for the 1 pm feeding of the vultures. It was crazy to watch them gather in the trees around the watering hole awaiting "lunch." It made a great little video! Back to our lunch... More

Six of us were only there for an a la carte dinner, not staying. At a table overlooking the water hole, like many others in Africa, we had very good food and an excellent view. Even our local host was impressed! Elephant, buffalo, hyenas and roaring lions then magical starlit drive back to our own hotel. Would hope to stay... More

Fabulous looking lodge with good location, beautiful decore for the rooms, great view of the watering hole and the morning herds. The downside are the mosquitos that are let into the rooms by the cleaning staff leaving the doors open while working in the room and the terrible service by the F&B personnel. Also, the F&B prices are very high... More

I loved this place. Gorgeous rooms & decks overlooking the watering hole. I loved my balcony. Virtually all overlook the watering hole. I never made it to the Boma, but the buffet breakfast was great. I also enjoyed the a la carte restaurant. Loved the 3way chicken. I saw 3 elephants one morning at breakfast. Very cool. Gorgeous pools that... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. The lodge is quite unique, built around a water hole which you can see from the balcony if every room. Whilst we were there we saw elephants, kudu, warthogs, impala, and a huge variety of birds. The pool area is small but lovely. Staff are very friendly, and food is exceptional.... More

This Lodge is perfectly located for a 2 night stay touring Victoria Falls. Located 5 minutes outside the Town of Victoria Falls, the Lodge has hourly shuttle bus service with various stops in the town and the entrance into the Falls. The Lodge has beautiful grounds with warthogs walking around the front lawn and the impressive thatched roofs. The rooms... More

Service, food & hotel were all excellent. We liked the food at Makuwa Kuwa better than Boma. The warthog & kudu were both excellent at Makuwa Kuwa. Boma is fun though... they have a show while you eat. Overall, we loved staying at this lodge.

We arrived early afternoon from Johannesburg to start our extension of the South African Highlight and Safari Tour with Smartours. Shortly after arrival, we took a walk around the hotel ground and were amazed at the different building architecture and admired the different thatched roof buildings. The Makuwa-Kuwa restaurant is an a la carte restaurant that has amazing view of... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in mid-Sept. Truly excellent lodge. We had a wonderful room (suite #12) overlooking the waterhole. Food is excellent, staff are wonderful and the views from the dining room and the bar is second to none. Always interesting things to watch at the waterhole and service from the staff could not have... More

Arrived here after sleeping on the ground in a tent for nearly 4 months, so getting into the giant room with a bathtub, big shower, balcony, minibar and some snacks felt like heaven. The view from the balcony is amazing, with elephants regularly showing up and drinking at the lake. Breakfast is great, dinner options won't leave anyone disappointed. The... More
