The hotel is open air which is nice except the mosquitos are a constant. Come prepared with repellant. The hotel has...

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.

We went in low season, so we got the room for a little more than $100 a night--which includes free wifi and breakfast. What an amazing deal! The beds were comfy, the hot water is unlimited (although very difficult to regulate and they could use a larger shower curtain), the staff was friendly, and the property was beautiful. Would definitely...

Excellent and well positioned to explore the area. Food was good, service above average and the facilities were excellent. Lovely pools to swim in, lovely gardens for a walk about and very close to most sight seeing places.

We stayed here for 1 night while visiting the Falls between safari trips. I was disappointed for several reasons: 1) our room smelled, 2) there were mosquitos everywhere; 3) it wasn't close to the falls. We thought it would be walking distance but it is not. there is a shuttle which we took 1 way. The price was decent enough....
