I have just returned from a 15 day trip to S. Africa that included a two night stay at the Zambezi Sun. Our group of 33 loved the hotel. For us, as part of the total package, it was all inclusive. We took the beautiful sunset cruise on the African Queen (snacks and drinks inlcuded) and the 5 minute walk to see the wonderous falls. Fantastic!
The rooms were roomy and clean--no dead or alive bugs. I enjoyed our visit to the sister 5-star hotel which is truly gorgeous, yet somewhat reminiscent of the colonial times. Had a delicious lunch at the Royal Livingstone and had high tea there. Both were excellent and not outrageously pricey. The food at the Sun was quite good and very fresh.
The staff at both hotels is wonderfully trained and very attentive to the needs of guests.
My only complaint was the entry visa fee of $130 USD which, of course, the hotel had no control over. Being American, it was a pleasure to spend my remaining US dollars there or the left over Rand.
The vendors at the craft market outside of the property were quite rude. The poverty of the area outside of the resort was staggering so perhaps this accounts for the level of desperation of the vendors.More
