The staff are very friendly and the setting is beautiful. Animals walk around but they aren't threatening; it's fun having them so close! However, I'm afraid that my stay was tainted on the last morning! When I arrived at breakfast they didn't tell me that breakfast wasn't included in my stay. I was then hit with a bill for 30...

All round first class hotel on the banks of the Zambezi with a resident crocodile found most days on the bank of the river. Lovely surroundings, nice restaurant but the buffet was expensive at about £30 pp. Free courtesy bus to town and the falls running every two hours. Definitely one of the better hotels with really helpful staff and...

We stayed the A 'Zambezi for two days – our first stop on a ten day trip around Zimbabwe and Botswana. The setting is magnificent, right on the river where baboons creep out of the forest in the evenings to play on the lawns and the warthog family move around the grounds, keeping the grass down and entertaining the guests....

We stayed as a family (2 adults + children 11 & 8). The hotel is fairly basic, however the location is very picturesque, rooms are clean and adequate. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast is very good (buffet style - fruit and hot breakfast, including choice of eggs). Victoria Falls is quite expensive in relation to the rest...

A'Zambezi is a four star resort giving five star enjoyment. The only resort on the Zambezi, the thatched villas are arranged in a horseshoe around the large pool and beautifully landscaped gardens. Animals including mongoose, warthogs, monkeys played freely. The rooms were reasonably large, with strong hot showers and the beds were very comfortable. The restaurant provided good hearty home...
