We just returned from a Smarttours trip to South Africa. This was our final hotel-3 nights outside small town of Victoria Falls, in close proximity to falls themselves, and about an hour from Chobe National Park in neighboring Batswana, which we visited during our visit. Very nice setting. Most rooms have view of watering hole. Not an abundance of animals to view there since there has been plenty of rain and water is abundant. We did see kudu and pretty birds. Restaurant has view of watering hole as well. We ate dinner there all 3 night. Plentiful breakfast buffet served there. Wide variety of cold items and hot items ordered from menu-including made to.order omelets and eggs. I had benedict like dish with poached eggs and spinach. We saw several monkeys on the property up close and personal, including one who stole my banana right off the table our last morning. Turn down service in rooms included putting down mosquito netting around the bed-felt like we were in the movies! We were never bothered by mosquitoes but did discover several dead winged insects in bathroom last 2 mornings. Our last evening the room attendant gave us a small gift of 2 beaded animals. We were provided with 2 bottles of water each evening.
- 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
