In truth, the Waterfront wasn't quite as I expected it to be (based on how it was described in my guidebook), but I had a great stay there regardless in the tented accommodation. The tent was clean and comfortable, with two single beds, a table, lamp and fan. Washing facilities were clean and there was always hot water- however I... More

We spent 5 glorious nights in a riverfront chalet at the waterfront hotel. The atmosphere is buzzing and very suitable for outgoing people who like to meet others from all over the world. The staff are helpful and interactive. Nothing was too much trouble for Graham Nel and his team. The breakfast was adequate, but the no 1 menu item... More

Nice grassed sites with decent ablotions, large enough to accomodate a full place. Great, reasonably priced food at the restaurant and the deck is just the perfect place for sundowners. Wifi is not sufficient at 30 mins every 24 hours and the additional vouchers available for purchase, were not loading. This becomes problematic over a 3 night stay!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Waterfront for five nights recently. It was awesome from the moment we arrived , till the day we left. In fact, we were very sad to leave. The staff was exceptional, friendly, attentive and polite. The setting is amazing. Our chalet was right on the water, with unobstructed views of the river. For... More

We booked on the day of arrival. Immediately the staff at the information desk assisted us. We got a water fronting chalet within minutes and at a reduced price (in peak season). The taxi driver (Mono) working for the Victoria Falls Waterfront was very helpful and friendly getting us across the border to Victoria Falls and back. The food was... More

Given everything non camping is crazy expensive this place does the job for nice chalets and riverfront views. The pizza is really good too! The chalets are nice but could use a little updating and it would be nice if the staff could lower the nets and spray for you but this is not a big deal. Breakfast is ample... More

Dear Skin12 Thank you for sharing your experience and the 5* review to go with it! I agree - the smell of breakfast that wafts into my office is rather enticing! And no visit to the Waterfront (or Livingstone) is complete without a sunset cruise on the Zambezi - especially on the MV Makumbi, that was one of the first... More

We had stayed at Waterfront several times in the past, but had chosen budget accommodations in recent years. This was our anniversary celebration, so we thought Waterfront would be a more suitable stay. I have always loved the restaurant's view of the Zambezi, and dinner and breakfast on the deck are fantastic. The chalet we stayed in was very nice,... More

Stayed for three nights in one of the chalets. The room was quite large and had great views of the river. Very cool inside although there was no aircon. Beds very comfortable and lots of hot water. I stayed in 24 that is close to the water pump so had to listen to it switching on and off during the... More

This hotel is situated on the banks of the Zambezi River with views of the Victoria Falls spray. It is just amazing to be sitting on the deck having a meal or drink and seeing this sight! Fantastic sunsets also. Rooms are nicely decorated & clean. Bathrooms can be a challenge in the water department but we are in Africa!... More

We also have Adventure Village Tents which are permanent tents with 2 x single beds and a campsite - so something to suit everyone. The lodge has fantastic amenities including 2 x swimming pools, a popular bar, restaurant with Peppino's by the river's pizza's (delicious!).
