Friendly and helpful staff, and awesome views of the mighty Zambezi and spray from the waterfall. The hotel is situated just outside town - between the untouched nature and wildlife, with elephant and buffalo that can cross your path at any time on your way to the hotel. The rooms are nice and also offers great views of the surrounding...

Travelled over the bridge from Zambia to play a round of golf at the Elephant Hills Resort's course and, unfortunately, it was a disappointment. I do realise that they had had a significant amount of rain but there was virtually no evidence of any green staff working on the course with none of the greens having been prepared for the...

If you are coming to Zimbabwe and are use to staying at more upscale hotels then I have to tell you there are not too many options for this area. Elephant Hills is by far the best hotel/ resort around the area. The hotel is definitely not a luxury hotel compared to the standards of the rest of the world...

We had an amazing time here! The staff was so warm and welcoming, the service was impeccable and the views were unmatched! Its a very short drive to the Falls. There were charming animals all around, and we were so relaxed - it was excellent! Thank you!

Victoria Falls is a very small town. The resort is about 3-4 minutes by car from the town center and about 30 minutes from the airport. The resort was very nice with clean rooms and a nice restaurant. The staff were very friendly. The resort is located outside the town and feels very safe. There are monkeys everywhere on the...

On arrival at Elephant Hills we were greeted with a drink and a cold towel, but more importantly, a smile. Registration was easy and quick and we were soon on our way to our room. It was a garden view room, but In reality, we were on the 4th floor and could see a tree. However, if we looked right...

We spent a night at the Elephant Hills Resort. It was a short ride to the falls. The hotel offered shuttle service or it is a cheap cab ride to the falls. The room was nice, clean and comfortable.

Believe it or not this hotel is in a national park and yet one hardly notices the difference as the terrain and environment transition seamlessly. Watching the world famous "Smoke that thunders" from the terrace makes it so near and yet so serene, the mystique of the grand Zambezi envelopes the entire experience day in day out.
