Wonderful lodge right on the waterfront, with magnificent direct views of the Zambesi River: calm and smooth in the morning, and with dramatical sunset in the evening. Fun bar, pleasant restaurant, private sunset cruises, sleeping in traditional houses.'Beware of crocodiles' says the sign on the little bridges!

Dear Annnelies, Many thanks for your review of the Waterfront! We are thrilled you love the views and the dramatic sunset as much as we do - we do have a television stationed at the bar but with SO MUCH to do and see in Livingstone, we find television to be a rare commodity but we appreciate your feedback, thank...

Stayed three nights as part of a longer holiday. Can't fault the staff, food, location, bar or facilities, all great. Overall, probably more suited to activity goers around the falls, having said that, we stayed in the permanent tents which were very comfy, no idea what the other accommodation is like. Very close to falls, border, Livingstone and the main... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be a great affordable option nearby Victoria Falls. Because we didn't want to get in and out of cabs, we also ate here for dinner both nights, and found the meals (try the oxtail if they have it!) to be some of the best we had while in Africa. The...

Dear kristenb731, Thank you so much for your review!

I have never written a review, but thought the Waterfront deserved our praises. My fiancé and I stayed for a week and we loved waking up every morning to the sound of monkeys and hippos. We especially appreciated that everything we needed was there on site. The staff was incredibly friendly and with the fantastic restaurant there was no need... More

Stayed in the static tents - very comfortable. Had to ask for extra blankets because it was cold at night. Also one early morning the generator went on at 5am and that was that in terms of sleep. We wondered why there were no solar panels! Also due to large camping parties, the shower/toilet block was not great at the... More

Dear pipit31, Thank you so much for your review. Yes it has been a bit chilly this winter! We are glad you received extra blankets on request.

We slept in a permanent safari tent. The blankets were inadequate against the cold, however they gladly supplied us with more. The location on the Zambezi River is stunning; the sunset cruise is well worth doing! The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was pretty good, too. When the power is down, the generator makes quite a noise at... More

We visited on two occasions in July '15 to enjoy some rest and a good meal. Food was excellent and well priced. Our average meal price was ~$7 per person for a great meal. We had various pizzas and a rump steak between the 5 of us. The views from the deck is an absolute stunner.

This place is called Zambezi Waterfront now. I stayed in a "permanent tent," which is a heavy-duty tent on cement with two twin beds inside. Exactly as its website says, the tents have a small table and a lamp. That's it! Unfortunately, not a very comfortable place to stay after several long international flights. Only stayed here due to my... More

We have a few different accommodation options on offer, one of which is our permanent tents (Adventure Village) where you stayed as part of your tour.

Awesome campsite with lots of ablution sites and almost always has hot water. Great bar and restaurant with an awesome view of the Zambezi River. Probably the best options for recreational facilities in the area. Awesome staff.

When staying in or around Livingstone you should spend at least one night on the river. And you cannot get much closer to the river than Victoria Falls Waterfront. Five paces from the back patio of many of the chalets and you will fall in the Zambezi-- sleepwalkers beware! :) I was awakened early in the morning by hippos playing... More
