What a lovely place...a gorgeous series of thatched buildings overlooking a significant watering hole (frequented by herds of elephants, buffalo, guinea fowl, baboons.. and so much more)... an architectural award-winning design and lovely and accommodating staff. As we were celebrating our anniversary they upgraded us to a deluxe suite, two floors, fabulous views, and the nicest bathroom in any hotel in Zimbabwe!
The associated restaurants (Boma and Makuwa-kuwa) are not the greatest (Boma: high tourist and all about "the show", Makuwa-kuwa: institutional food, lousy service) but this is a destination hotel - you are there for the awesome location, rooms, amenities, and service - and proximity to the area game parks and the falls.
Although it is located just outside of Vic Falls proper, they have regular and easy transport in and out of town to every attraction and possible stops. They simply make it all very easy to have an exceptional experience in Victoria Falls.
We would recommend this hotel without hesitation to anyone we knew coming to Victoria Falls.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Voted the best Safari Lodge in Zimbabwe for 18 years running, the world-famous Victoria Falls Safari Lodge offers easy access to the iconic Victoria Falls, coupled with a wildlife experience that is truly unrivalled. Now in its 20th year of welcoming guests, the Lodge is built on a plateau overlooking the Zambezi National Park with endless unspoilt views to the horizon, just four kilometers from the Falls. This is the only sunset facing hotel in Victoria Falls, and the newly-renovated rooms and balconies are built up above a central waterhole which attracts herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe, zebra, as well as night-time predators, such as lion and leopard. Our warm and personable staff are our greatest pride. Past guests frequently comment on our team's sublime hospitality and seamless delivery. The main areas of the lodge, such as the MaKuwa-Kuwa restaurant and the homely Buffalo Bar, are rich in ambience and also overlook the central waterhole, where drinks and dinners are often shared with wildlife meandering down to the water each day to quench their thirst. ... more less
