We stayed in a number of places in southern Africa. This was one of the nicest, but certainly not as 'authentic' as other places. The bar is good, restaurant food was pretty western, beers were well priced. In terms of location, you're literally on the zambezi! We did a boat cruise down the river organised by the hotel and the...

Dear Adam B Thanks for your review! As said, the Victoria Falls Waterfront has a prime spot right on the Zambezi River, and the sunsets from here are always amazing. This time of year is also particularly good for elephant sightings, especially since we are situated inside the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Safpar Activity Centre is based on-site, so all activity...

As a camper you have it all in excellent provision. Grass campsites with abundant power supplies, two swimmingpools of which one is at the bar area and the other close to the campsite if you want to relax in a more quiet area. Even with a constant flow of younger tourists in overlanding groups, the bathrooms were never overcrowded or...

Dear 756lorraine Thanks so much for your review and comments, and we're so happy to have welcomed you back for a 5th stay with us here at the Waterfront!

First impressions of the Waterfront were positive - the rooms are in well separated spacious thatch-roofed buildings. set in lush gardens, with natural pools here and there. The main building housing the reception area, bar, restaurant, shop, etc. is located just back from the Zambezi riverbank, and is very much the focal point of the whole complex. The hotel is...

I really liked the atmosphere of the Victoria Falls Waterfront, it is very informal and laid-back. I noticed that guests from nearby hotels came to the Victoria Falls Waterfront for dinner because they thought it was more relaxed than their own hotel. It has a good location & reception can easily arrange the short taxi ride to and from town...
