This was a surprise special birthday visit for my wife and me. We were greeted at VF airport by Shearwater, and looked after by them throughout our 4 day stay. Check-in was satisfactorily handled, and we were shown to a clean, comfortable room. Shearwater arranged a number of activities, including a guided walk to the Falls, a night game drive... More

We spent two nights at the A'Zambesi Lodge prior to commencing a Safari through Zimbabwe and Botswana. The hotel is located in delightful settings on the banks of the Zambesi River and a few kilometres out of town. Our twin room wasn't overly large but everything about the hotel was wonderful. The room was cosy, well watered lawns were extensive... More

We stayed here in May 14 for two nights and it thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A fabulous location right on the rivers edge and the rooms looking out towards the river were well appointed and comfortable. The staff were super friendly and helpful and very attentive to our needs. Dining in the outdoor dining area was a pleasure and the... More

We stayed at A'Zambezi two nights at the beginning of our safari trip & one night at the end, and it was an absolute pleasure. The location is beautiful - right on the serene riverbank. I definitely recommend the rooms facing the pool and river. I would recommend staying here over the places in town as it is more peaceful,... More

We stayed here for four nights in early June. I rated the lodging here five stars based upon its moderate price point. To improve significantly you had to pay about double the price It is between the very high end resorts in walking distance of Victoria Falls or the little more remote exotic game lodges and the lower end of...

I was here for a conference for 4 days this past week, and overall it was a very good stay. My favorite thing about it simply was the location right on the Zambezi River.

This hotel sits between 3 and 4 stars. Good points: exceptional service from friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Cannot fault this, even down to the gardeners and security. Actually some of the best service on 2 month trip through southern Africa. Also made an effort with vegetarian food - whilst the food was not amazing they had made an effort... More
