beautiful hotel. has a resort-like feel with the casino, food court, shopping area, pool, etc. one of if not THE closest hotel to the zimbabwe victoria falls. easy 10 minute walk (watch out for elephants on the path: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PjWNSfU4jc). showers are the best i've had in africa! hot, and the most pressure i've ever experienced in a shower. the room is simple. very spacious. the patio is a nice touch. at $170/night, it's a steal. consider what you would pay for a hotel of this caliber in a non-african country. you'd pay at least twice that.
- Be very sure of your visas. If you want to see both sides of the falls, you have to have appropriate visas to get through. And when you come back through the border, you will need a double (or maybe even a multiple) entry visa.
- It is free to go IN BETWEEN the borders, but not THROUGH the other side of the border. It is not a good system. But I think they are able to tell if you're just going in between or through based on whether or not you have luggage with you.
- The border closes at 22:00
- Go on the sunset cruise, and book it through this hotel. It was the cheapest we found, and it was the best. It includes unlimited drinks (alcohol too), has some snacks, and has a local musician. Best compared to the other boats we saw. But it doesn't go too close to the falls. You need a high-powered engine to do that. But this cruise is very relaxing, especially after the thundering falls.
- Zimbabwe falls costs $30. I've been told the Zambia side is $10, and not as impressive. If we had time, I would've gone to both.
