This is a open-aired Lodge that features a reception area, 2 level dining area and bar. It looks out onto a watering hole where various wildlife (I saw elephants, impala, warthogs, a variety of birds) gather. The rooms are located separately and are simply furnished with mosquito netting around the bed (a must!). You are advised to keep the balcony doors latched as baboons sometimes try to get in. The balconies are facing the watering hole but are to the side of it so you can't really sit on the deck (too hot anyway) & observe the watering hole.
All of the staff were warm & friendly. It seemed to me to be a good blend of indigenous and enough comfort to satisfy a more "picky" traveler. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the breakfast buffet had a myriad of choices. I would definitely return.
- 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
