A'Zambezi River Lodge
Ranked #11 of 16 Hotels in Victoria Falls
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 13, 2011

We and young son put up at this lodge when we were on a trip to the famous Victoria Falls. It is a quiet place away from the crowded town. The beautiful hotel and its clean and well maintained grounds give an elegant look to the hotel. The freshly renovated room looked new and it provided for a comfortable stay. The room service was prompt and the staffs were great. My jovial son made some great friends with the friendly and highly helpful staffs. The restaurant serves excellent food. The swimming pool was a nice place to cool us after a trip outside.

This is the best hotel in Victoria Falls. Being far enough away from town yet close enough to go into should you have the need. The layout of the hotel means that in essence, everyone has the same view. Close to the Zambezi, you see quite a few animals around the place. The pool was perfect after a day in the sun and Dennis the barman made some local specials. The food in the restaurant was all good quality and the prices reasonsable. Sadly it was very quiet during our stay which gave it a bit of a ghost town feel but we didn't mind.

Each room has a great vista over the pool and river, as does the dining area. Great meals. Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are a bit small, but comfortable. The rooms were also a bit tired; but were in the process of being renovated during our stay. The lodge is a fair distance from town, which is good providing the shuttle buses run regularly. Officially there are only 3 per day; but we were always able to get transfers (almost when we wanted then) with the staff. We really enjoyed our stay.

Stayed at the A'Zambezi over the Christmas weekend. Accommodation was good. Cuisine was excellent. Service very professional and staff very efficient, helpfull and obliging.
Tour operator Wild Horizons very professional. No hiccups with pick ups and transfers.
Tour of the falls a must. Helicopter flight of angels a once in a lifetime experience. Enjoyed the walk to the falls better as much closer to the falls. Pre-book everything as prices of food and drinks can be very expensive. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable experience and definitely a top 10 destination on my list.

The hotel and grounds were beautifully well kept and the location right on the river was wonderful. We found the staff incredibly friendly and extremely helpful. All our transport to and from the hotel was on time and our border crossings to and from the airport were well organised. We cannot fault anything about our holiday in Victoria Falls and would recommend it to all travellers.

A good mix of visitors, not mass tourism as we experienced in other hotels.
Apart from the lovely location on the river and the excellent service by everybody, we were also impressed by the quality of the food, and its variety. Good entertainment by local bands in the evenings. October is Zim's hottest month, which means that even with airconditioner in the room it was difficult to sleep.
A hotel shuttle service meant that you could stay in touch with the Victoria Falls which is 5 km away.

We felt this riverside setting hard to beat in the hot month of October, always a feeling of cool tranquility. We loved the architecture and gardens - simple and spacious. Lovely pool, and brilliant service. Everything worked well in the rooms, and the food was excellent. We had absolutely no complaints and would recommend it to anyone.
