I used to stay at the Royal Livingstone but this time, for a very short trip in September I decided to stay at the Zambezi Sun. The staff is just amazing. Everyone is very nice and they look after you very well. The location is amazing (on the top of the falls and in the middle of a national park)... More

Wonderful location,so close to Victoria Falls. Great walking path along the falls and amazing view. Zebra, antelopes, giraffes roamed around the hotel grounds. Nice hotel with stunning ochre colours, colorful mosaics and architecture (reminded me of Marrakech). Lots of animal sculptures around the gardens. The swimming pool was very inviting. Breakfast was delicious with variety of foods and fresh delicious... More

Great place to stay to view the falls. They are right out your back door. Animals roaming around - love it! We stayed at the back. We see antelope right outside our patio doors, We walked the falls in the morning and later in the evening. Looks different with sun angles. We had the buffet twice - loved the breakfast... More

extremely aggressive pricing only available through annsiby000@yahoo.com! This hotel is unbeliveably beautiful and serene, shared with the royal livingston, makes the entire hotel a sight to see and your holiday one to remember!

The hotel is perfectly situated just a few minutes walk from Victoria Falls. Entrance to the falls is free for hotel guests. Monkeys and zebra roam the hotel grounds and the hotel lake has its own family of crocodiles. Staff are friendly and helpful and food is original, well presented and plentiful. Rooms are small but acceptable.

This was my husband and I’s 8th wedding anniversary and we traveled with two of our friends and visited South Africa, Zambia, Botswana and Kenya. We ended up booking our entire stay with the exception of Cape Town through AfricanMecca whom I have reviewed separately. After my usual 101 questions and going through a list of many other locations including... More

We ended our safari vacation here at the Zambezi Sun, which was a wonderful finale to an unforgettable trip. It is an expensive place to stay. But it is very conveniently located "right next door" to Victoria Falls. It was so easy to just walk a very short way to enjoy the spectacular views of the falls. Additionally, the rooms... More

Zambesi Sun Hotel. Set in a superb location within a short distance of the falls this hotel is ideal as a centre for the many activities on offer locally. The staff were helpful, friendly and welcoming and. The room was comfortable if not a little short on seating; the servicing of the room was excellent. During our stay (11-14 Sep)... More
