This hotel is the nearest hotel to Victoria Falls. It's less than 5 mins walking to the falls. Guests here can enter Victoria Falls for free during normal opening hours (from 6am-6pm). Visitting during the night is not possible, except on lunar rainbow days. (You have to pay 25 USD for the entrance).
Before I came, I had little problem of reservation. I reserved a room online on the official website of sun international. I gave details of my credit card. It was confirmed. The next day I recieved a mail from this hotel to inform that I needed to deposit money to their account. I felt it was strange, so I sent them an email. The reservation department director answered me and told me that they didnt get details of my credit card when I reserved from sun international website. I had to give my credit card number again to guarantee my booking again. I dont understand why a big company like sun international doesnt aware of this problem.
About the hotel, it's a normal 3 stars hotel. Staffs here do not have much service mind compare to the sister hotel, Royal Livingstone. Everything here is expensive. They dont give complimentary water either. (For the price,I think I should have minibar in my room with complimentary water). However, it was a good experience staying beside the falls and saw zebra on the ground of hotel in the morning
