This was a very nice hotel. Rooms were comfortable and setting was excellent. The bed was a bit sub-standard but everything else was fine. Had a problem with our fire alarm going off due to excess shower steam which is not good but the manager was very nice and professional about explaining it and telling us how to prevent it...

While the watering hole is spectacular, the rest of the hotel is not. I found the quality of the rooms and service to be sub-par. The rooms are outdated and dank. The employees couldn't care less about you or your stay. You are simply a number. At the price per room, I expected A LOT more and left very disappointed....

'Lion King' experience - Africa as foreigners expect it to be: baboon, warthog, buck roaming the hotel- and village- grounds; elephant drinking at waterhole while dining; crocodile in the swimming pool... Though a business trip, it was easily the best holiday I have had in about 6 years!

My Partner and myself recently stayed at the lodge for 3 nights and loved every minute of our time there. Rooms are basic, but clean and have all the amenities required, lovely big shower, However the best thing for me was the view, a view of the waterhole and all the animals that pay you a visit each day, Fantastic!!!...

Stayed one night in October, the last night of our safari and it was a memorable stay. Loved the fantastic views over the water hole from the dining area and our room. Hotel is a little way out of town but the views make up for this. We had an enjoyable lunch in the bar area enjoying the views and...

Hotel has a good location just outside the rather rundown town of Victoria Falls - apart from the upmarket hotels of course. There is a regular shuttle though. Room overlooking the waterhole was two-storey with full amenities - including a/c and fans, tea-making, two toilets, big shower + separate bath, nice furnishings and mosquito nets (tho' I didn't see any)....

Great view from our balcony. Staff was very accommodating. We traveled with a tour group who set up the reservation. This hotel had the best hot water of all the places we stayed. Hot water was almost instant, so watch it.

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
