This hotel was very nice. It reminded me of an all inclusive resort in the Caribbean like Mexico, Jamaica, etc. The check in was easy and quick. The hotel was clean, don't leave stuff out on the balcony though because of the monkeys that are around outside, they do get everywhere. Breakfast was included with our room and was very nice. The pool was nice, clean and refreshing. The hotel had a few restaurants you could eat at and a casino. The other restaurants were good food and value.The location of the hotel is very nice if you are going to Victoria Falls, it is also in town and not far away like some others. It takes 5-10 minutes to walk to Victoria falls, there is wild life just outside of the fenced area like warthogs and elephants so be careful. The only problem is talking the back route to Victoria falls is the people trying to sell you things, very aggressive. They do have tourist police that patrol the area and chase them off.

We travelled as a family to Victoria falls staying at the Kingdom. The staff could not have been more welcoming, the room (with bunk for children) was fabulous, clean and bright, overlooking the ponds. Mosi's were non existent and from the balcony we were able to see king fishers and other wild water birds. The restaurant staff were friendly and accommodating to our food requirements despite the "bongos" being a bit overpowering in the evening meal!!

All the pools were kept very well and enjoyed by all ages. Poolside service really good (as we're the Malawi Shandies) if you are able definitely stay here for the most central place to stay in the falls with a bush path right to the falls itself . Great stay, management of the Kingdom. Many thanks.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor of the main building in the 3 hundreds.

I have recently returned from Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls. We stayed at the Kingdom Hotel, a ten minute walk from the Falls. The accommodation was perfectly located for multiple trips to the river, the Falls and to the small town. Our room was, clean, spacious and quiet. The buffer breakfast, which was included in the price (package by Shearwater and booked from South Africa), was a glorious start to any day. We had buffet dinners on two occasions and were delighted with the choice and preparation of the food. The casino side of the hotel, which, by the way, is in an adjacent building, had the usual African array of takeaway/eat in establishments.
The fact that the American dollar and the SA Rand are the only currencies accepted meant that everything was quite expensive. I suggest you book your trips prior to arrival and, for Brits, the visa charge is $55. We took a day trip to Botswana and had to pay a further $55 to re-enter Zim, so be prepared to buy a Double entry visa at the airport!

We spent three nights here on a trip to see Victoria Falls. The hotel was obviously very grand in its time, but is now quite dated. The air conditioning did not work in the room, they fixed it and it broke again the next night, so they moved us to a different room...which was very good of them, but just a nuisance for us. The food is good and the staff are helpful and friendly....on the surface.....the smiles faded as soon as you turn away. There is a casino on site and good pizza if you are looking for a light meal.
The location is terrific, just a short walk to see the falls, but you are hassled by pedlars every step of the way. You can also walk over the Victoria Falls bridge which separates Zimbabwe from Zambia, but need to explain to the customs and immigration folks on the border and get a pass. We did not walk into Zambia, as it seemed to be 6km to the nearest town and we were concerned that we might be charged $75us to reenter Zimbabwe.

Room Tip: Ask if any rooms have been recently upgraded

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst seeing the falls - a party of 6 adults ranging from aged 20 to 80, and can safely say it was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The food was tasty, fresh and plentiful and the onsite restaurants are nice too. The rooms were well furnished, clean and had modern air con. The views from the room was beautiful, across the well manicured gardens complete with alligators. The pool is huge clean and beautiful, plenty of sunloungers and shade if needed. The bar staff were always on hand to bring drinks. The walk to the start of the falls is literally out the back gate and you're there, past the wild monkeys strolling about of course!
The staff will bend over backwards for you, nothing is too much trouble - they really made this holiday perfect for us!

As casino's go - this is no exception. Got a fabulous theme playing on the Zimbabwean ruins. The architecture and the design reflects that. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The casino is small and intimate. The grounds are great and we'll maintained and the restaurant erea for breakfast is spacious and the good is good. As casino restorers go. Not bad!
