Very happy we included the falls in our trip. They truly are magnificent. A couple of must knows: You will get completely drenched so be prepared. A rain coat didn't really help. With that said you can rent one for a couple of dollars. Do it!! If you go at night, bring a flashlight not your camera. It's really dark...

We really enjoyed our stay at this venue. Spent a very pleasant time on the deck (with small pool facility). The river floats by, the view of the 'cloud that thunders' not far off, monkeys chatter in the trees. A great spot to observe, meet and chat with fellow travellers. The staff were very helpful and friendly at all times....

Excellent & beautiful location! Right on the river and from the large patio deck you could see the mist of the falls in the air. The family room was very large with 4 beds. The staff was very friendly and understanding. We were scheduled to stay there 2 night, but couldn't get the the border crossing in time. About 1...

We were staying downstairs in a chalet and had a relatively noisy family above us. We could hear every word and hardly got to sleep. Welcome at the reception was not really a friendly welcome. We had breakfast included, which was the worst breakfast during our 2+ weeks in Zambia. Staff wasn't getting more fruit salad because we were there...

Hi Linus H, Many thanks for your feedback after your stay with us at The Waterfront.

What a pleasant surprise to have discovered this wonderful lodge by the banks of the mighty Zambezi. The facilities were exactly as advertised and the guests gave the place a vibrant youthful vibe. The soothing feeling of watching boats go up and down the rivers added to the serenity of the location. Truly wonderful

The staff are charming and friendly, the food in the restaurant good and the chalet was comfortable (although we would have liked a softer chair on the patio, those hardwood chairs are...hard). The view of the Zambezi and the 'Smoke', from the deck is wonderful and the river safari and evening cruise not to be missed. We did a couple...

We actually booked a tent but with the heavy rains we decided to upgrade to a room. The tent looked like it would be OK if you were travelling with a group and you had a few tents rented out but on your own it might be not that pleasant. That said the room was pretty nice and comfortable. The...

Couldn't get a room as they were fully booked so opted for meal instead. Wide range of meals and pizzas available all at reasonable pricing. Does get somewhat busy at times but the atmosphere is good and vibrant. Service is also good and bar staff very friendly. Highly recommended for a meal and/or drink at the least.

We stayed in the tent accommodations which was nicely priced. Tent was well equipped with a fan, mosquito spray, 2 single beds, and electrical outlets. The location was perfect for getting to all the other attractions and the falls. Food was pretty good and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
