This was our first accommodation on a three week holiday in Africa and we weren't disappointed. The setting and the first impression are excellent. Just what we were expecting of an African hotel.
The riverside location was incredible, not as close to Victoria Falls as a few other hotels but it was nonetheless an enjoyable. A good set of binos and a steady hand allowed a good view of falls' smoke!
We were two adults and one child sharing a standard ensuite room; it was a little tight, but the overall quality of the room was very pleasing. A beautiful balcony view of the gardens and river, as well as the fervent wildlife.
The dinner menu was very nice, but only al la carte was available, which was not particularly child friendly and a little more pricey than we wanted. Despite this the food was excellent and very enjoyable. We also tried the lunch menu which was much better for children, an unfortunate under cooking incident resulted in a few days sickness for my wife which put a damper on the whole experience.
A guided tour of the falls and a sunset riverboat trip were organised by the hotel's friendly and efficient tour staff. Both were very good value and extremely enjoyable; both are a must for any visitor.
Overall we really liked the hotel and would definitely use it again if we were returning to the falls.
