The hotel and room were pleasant and well located. We were upraised to a 1BR suite with a very pleasant river view. The facilities were quite comfortable but like most of Zimbabwe. The prices for incidentals and meals was significantly overpriced relative to other tourist destinations. I would limit my time in VF and focus on other options. They appear...

We stayed here for a couple of nights, at the end of our Botswana/Zimbabwe safari. It is a huge comlex, close to the Zambezi. But the wildlife viewing on the Zambezi was not much (Maybve we were spoiled, hjaving arrived from Chobe) . Helpful staff, good service. And good food at the buffets. There is a bus service to the...

River frontage creates beautiful views. Staff here were fantastically helpful. Made for a lovely stay. Only warning however is to make sure to have cash money for check out as the credit card facilities were very unreliable

We went there as part of the Dreamtrips club travel. The place is closer to both Victoria Falls Airport and Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport (formerly Livingstone Airport). Staff service is amazing. The rooms are perfect and every night they ensure mosquito wont bite you. When you arrive you will get a bottle of wine. Every night you get a...

This hotel is very far away from the town so you have to eat and drink there. There is a shuttle to town but we did not use it. The hotel is being offered as 4 star but it is maybe a 3 start. The rooms are clean but worn down. The service is average. But the worst part is...

We spent two nights here while exploring Victoria Falls. The grounds are lovely --and full of wild things --like Warthogs, hippos, etc. Staff were very very accommodating --and hard working. Food was very good and reasonably priced considering they have a "captive audience" . Lovely location along the Zambezi --like a park. Monkeys in the trees. One evening a huge...

I must say my lodge stay was awesome at this lodge. The place is beautiful,right on the Zambezi River with amazing views. A bit expensive, but well worth it. Best part though was the service. All the staff was on point. Not one issue. Definitely comes highly recommended👍🏽
