A'Zambezi River Lodge
Ranked #11 of 16 Hotels in Victoria Falls
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 12, 2013

In February I spent three nights at the A'Zambezi River Lodge attending a workshop that was being held at the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel's new look and feel having last been here over three years ago before it was refurbished. The rooms are a tad bit cramped but well furnished with touches of good decor. The best part about the hotel is its location on the river with a great eating area in full view of the river. The swimming pool is great and the hotel grounds lend themselves to a relaxing atmosphere. The A'Zambezi does not have the atmosphere of a large-scale resort with hordes of tourists which is a plus for someone wanting a quiet time away in Victoria Falls. The breakfast is adequate and the lunches could have been better. That said all in all it provides great value with welcoming staff and is ultimately a place I could return to all things considered.

We found the room to be clean and well maintained. The grounds are maintained to a high standard. The lawn was kept short with the help of the warthoggs. The coming and going of wildlife was like being in your own game reserve. The food was good, but, the buffet could have been replenished more frequently to avoid guests having to ask for it and then waiting around whilst it arrived. like other reviewers we found the staff to be excelent, we would like to make special mention of trainee manager Shingie, who we are sure will go on to great things, Daniel on front desk who went out of his way to help and Shylet who was a pleasure to deal with. In the restraunt Eddie was outstanding. Fizhani and Matika also made our stay enjoyable. As senior citizens we found the live music in the restraunt too loud for conversation at times, but, othrwise enjoyable.

Room Tip: Avoid room 101, the one we were in it is right next to reception and the noise of people coming and...

The A'Zambezi lodge is a beautiful lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River. The rooms were very clean and has a great modern look. The entire lodge is very well maintained and there was entertainment during dinner whilst we stayed there. All the staff is very friendly and helpful - Thanks to Gugulethu who went out of her way to help us book some tours. There is a free shuttle to and from the falls and town which is quiet nice. I would highly recommend staying here for a trip to Vic Falls.

Recently spent 3 nights at A'Zambezi River Lodge. It was the most complete lodge I've ever visited. The setting was beautiful, the rooms were spacious and complete. The staff was helpful beyond belief. One of the staff members even went as far as volunteering to be our tour guide for the duration of our stay in Zimbabwe! It was very special. Thank you very much to everyone at this lodge, especially Kimpton & Nqo who made us feel very welcome at A'zambezi River Lodge :-) Hope to call again very soon. Tshepo & Thandeka

Room Tip: Opt for the River facing room. Beautiful views!!!

Located right on the banks of the Zambezi River amid beautifully landscaped gardens. Enormous pool area. Although a little out of town regular free shuttle provided. Very relaxed atmosphere, rooms lovely and well serviced. Staff fantastic - were very helpful and extremely firendly - put on a special Valentines Day dinner for guests - certainly not expected but a great night filled with wonderful food and great entertainment. Excellent hotel and highly recommended

Stayed 3 days while in Zimbabwe. Nice big room sharing a common veranda. (good to sit and relax). Security is good (guard are guiding entrance and entrance to the stairs are guarded at night)! Breakfast and dinner (live native music provided) are ok! Baboons are quick to grab bites from the breakfast spread! Staff are friendly and helpful. Housekeeping is quick in providing additional bath mat, pillows and towels! It has a beautiful surrounding and the grass thatch roofs made it even more beautiful! It is next to the river!
