We spent two nights at the Lodge in a room with a view of the watering hole. We stayed at the lodge just in the hopes to see some wildlife and we were not disappointed. We saw, Elephants, Buffalo, Impalas, Crocs and other animals. The room was very comfortable.

Spent a couple of nights here as part of a longer tour. The room was great with 'free bottled water' daily and everything else you could hope for apart from TV ... but who needs that when you stay here?! I particularly liked the fact that there were some UK type power sockets that avoided the need for an adaptor....

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in both the Safari Lodge and the Safari Club. For a little more money I recommend the Club rooms. The breakfast and dinner at Makuwa Kuwa restaurant were amazing. BOMA is a must see while you're there. The hospitality is nothing short of amazing and it is no wonder many a tourist...

Hospitality at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge was excellent, from the minute we walked in till the minute we left. The main lodge is very impressive and it offers views from several levels onto a waterhole that attracts a variety of wildlife throughout the day - it's fun to sit in the bar or restaurant and watch storks, kudu, elephants, crocodiles...

Nice rooms with a fantastic balcony view. Fantastic shower. Great architecture. Delicious breakfast, but lousy dinner menu for vegetarians. Amazing sunset on the bar deck. Amazing staff. Gift shop way too expensive!

What more can we say about our journey into Victoria Falls? This place is a hidden gem in a prime location overlooking the most majestic watering hole you have experienced. Nothing like drinking a cold beverage watching elephants, buffalos, and giraffes playing in the background. The staff at the hotel is helpful and the waiting staff at the bar is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Voted the best Safari Lodge in Zimbabwe for 20 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 22nd 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
