The entire staff, from the GM on down, made our stay at the Safari Lodge unforgettable. They simply could not have been friendlier or more attentive. The lodge itself is a great property, with fantastic views of the bush and watering hole from both the restaurant and your room's balcony. We spotted elephant, impala, warthog, etc. as we enjoyed our local Zambezi beer on the hotel balcony. Breakfasts and dinners at the lodge were all superb, and our visit to the Boma for dinner was great fun and an experience not to be missed. The "in house" activities desk is great and can make all arrangements for you; the sunset river cruise was a particular favorite (beautiful scenery and great hippo viewing). We knew the Zimbabwe side was best for viewing the falls and having been there, I'm glad we made that decision. Vic Falls seems pretty removed from the political situation and we felt safe the entire time (The tourism police are great). It was nice to be a couple of minutes out of town with the hourly shuttle to town and the falls very handy. You'll find all the service in Vic Falls outstanding, so take plenty of small bills (ones & fives) so you can tip appropriately. Cheers!
- 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
