So this was my first trip ever to Africa. AND I was traveling by myself. I wanted to stay somewhere attractive, safe, and clean, but did not want to spend an arm and a leg. Protea was perfect. It is a very elegant place, with fountains, coi pools, a lovely indoor/ outdoor restaurant, and a super fun outdoor bar and... More

We stayed here for two nights. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The bedroom and bathroom were a bit tired, though clean. However, this hotel has a significant mosquito problem. We managed to kill all mosquitoes in our room on the first night but came back to our room the next day to find a new horde of them.... More

Nice grounds and central areas. Good restaurant and full service bar for post tour relaxing. Rooms are adequate, the bathrooms are nothing special (shower in particular). Be prepared for mosquitoes. Convenient to the airport and to visit the falls. The concierge can book your local activities. Use a cab from the airport, it will cost half the amount of the... More

This hotel was within close proximity to the Victoria Falls which is primarily why it was chosen (i.e. 10 min taxi ride) Rooms are clean and spacious with coffee and hot water pot in the room. Breakfast is included every morning and the usual breakfast fruit, yogurt, eggs to order, breakfast pastries, hot line buffet with beans and chicken livers,... More

A friendly, relaxed hotel at a reasonable rate. Short taxi or car ride to the falls. Stayed in June. Weather was comfortable - a slightly chilly at night and not too warm during the day. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Great service from the staff, and excellent facilities. Close to Victoria Falls and they can arrange all activities. With the UK exchange rate at 11:1 extra costs only add a few pounds here and there.

We booked a room via hotels.com so it was a great price for a very nice room. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and modern. The bar / pool area was nice for an afternoon drink. Breakfast is included and has a nice variety. I would definitely stay here again when in Livingstone.

Stayed here for three nights. The rooms are modern and nice. There are no mosquito nets (which is strange) and nothing to hang one if you bring your own. There were a few mosquitos in the room and I got bitten, never opened the windows. The buffet food served is excellent. Service at the restaurant can be slow at times.... More
