We had a wonderful family stay at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge in April 2017. Everything was excellent - from the views, the rooms, the staff and the food. We highly recommend this hotel. We will definitely stay here on our next visit.

VF Safari Lodge was recommended by our tour company, Rhino Africa. We truly enjoyed our stay at this property! It is a large, rustic lodge situated 10 minutes outside of town with a beautiful view of the savannah and a large watering hole to view a variety of animals throughout your stay. They offer a free shuttle to several spots...

The highlight is to watch the animals roam around the watering hole from the comforts from your hotel room balcony, eating your meals, by the pool and even a late night cocktail at the bar. Food and staff were excellent.

Whether at the bar, the pool, the restaurant or room 10, the watering hole is in easy view and provides numerous sitings of wild animals. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Recommend you take a nature walk of the grounds with Zulu. Would have loved a longer stay here. The one exception was Boma: confusing, no order, the food I got...

At first I was concerned that this resort was farther away from Victoria Falls than I'd prefer. But they had a shuttle and it wasn't far at all. We were at the Falls and went into town for lunch and some shopping. There were trails there but I really liked the pools, the bar and the decks overlooking the watering...

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
