3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Lovely place, no doubt about it and friendly staffs. Just the hotel need a serious refurbishment. Getting very old now and abused I guess over the years of good service. The view is just stunning and worth every moment. Don't get me wrong about it. A little overpriced for the room status but acceptable.

Superb place. I stayed in a riverside room and everywhere was so clean and fresh. The views of the mist rising from the falls are easily visible. The food was excellent and most of all, the staff were so friendly and helpful to me. Can't wait to visit again.

The Waterfront is a nice hotel with lovely facilities. I can not comment on the actual rooms as i was camping. But the fact that i could book my activities within the hotel was awesome. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Beautiful setting also. Just watch out for those monkeys!

Hi Kaitlyn, Oh those naughty monkeys! Sorry if they gave you any trouble, we do love having them around but they can be a little on the cheeky side sometimes - one of the many pleasures we have being in the National Park! It sounds like you enjoyed your stay with us which is wonderful news to us and we're... More

The charity, Riders for Health, run a trip to Zambia every year where our supporters fundraise to come along and ride their motorcycles from Lusaka to Livingstone.

The lodge looked great until we were taken to our tent accommodation. Surrounded by about 25 small dome tents with teenagers. we were advised that they partied until 3am. We refused to stay and requested an upgrade to a room. The room provided was clean and tidy and quiet suitable. The service was good, food was great and transport very... More

When we arrived at Waterfront we were devastated to see our accommodation was onsite tents in the middle of camping grounds surrounded by young backpackers - grounds were strewn with empty bottles & clothing. Thank goodness Waterfront upgraded us to rooms. We had a very comfortable stay with great service.

For the money and location it is a great selection. Not 5 star but more of a 3 star facility, but perfectly located to see the river and tour the area. Wifi is very expensive. Nice bar and common area.
