Bedrooms are thatched tents but no ordinary tents. Loved the view right across the Zambezi with hippos not far from the verandah. Very comfortable bedrooms with 3 washing facilities. Enjoyed the choice of food which you dont often get in safari lodges. Cant wait to go back!

The property is right in the Zambezi Park with no fencing around the property. The property is also right on Zambezi River with river safari available. We were picked up from the airport and met at the dock to transport us to the lodge. The reception is outside where meals are served with sitting area and a bar off the... More

The lodge is quite lovely and our suite was spacious and well appointed. Nice furniture and bedding and a beautiful view of the river. Being open air at the top meant if was a little chilly at times and the open shower was somewhat odd, but it worked. The guides and management were very nice and accommodating. The foodservice was...

Need more of a breakfast and offer more activities around the falls other just the guided walk. Found out later that there was a lion encounter as well which would be nice if you offered connections with that as well. Property was beautiful and the sunset/sunrise cruises were wonderful

We thought this was a great way to begin our honeymoon before heading to Botswana and Mozambique. There were very good activities and the lodge was great. It is 20 minutes from the Falls so quite relaxing (not overwhelmed by tourists)

As a travel agent, I have seen my fair share of properties. On a recent visit to Zimbabwe, I had the pleasure of staying at the The Victoria Falls River Lodge. It was outstanding from check in to check out, and has now become my all time favourite property. The rooms are enormous, the staff are extraordinary and a hippo... More

Everything was taken care of thru Lion World Travel of Toronto, CAN & included all transfers from airport, van, boat to hotel & back, all the wonderful meals & of course our rooms. My meals were gluten free (GF) & the staff was on top of that our whole visit. Meals were excellent, usually with 3 choices. One night I... More

The Lodge was just beautiful and very relaxing. I've never been around a staff that was more accommodating, friendlier and caring. I was a bit ill during my stay and the entire staff was concerned about my health and scrounged to find bland food for me. There was a big smile on every face and an aim to please. Did... More

Our family of 5 stayed at this lodge for 2 nights and 3 days as part of our African adventure. From the moment we arrived in the afternoon at Shearwater jetty, our captain took us on a relaxing 15 minute boat ride to the Victoria Falls River Lodge (VFRL). Along the way, we enjoyed spotting crocodiles and numerous birds. When... More

Accommodation was first rate, the food was very good and the people could not have been more helpful and willing to go the extra mile to provide special requests. Location on the river bank was very scenic and wart hogs, crocodiles and monkeys were visitors. The safari drives were a little disappointing as there were not many animals to be... More
