We were able to use Hotels.com to get a discounted night for our stay at Vic Falls (where everything is very expensive) and chose this lodge because of its location. It was a good deal nicer than most of the mid-range places we typically stay at. The staff was really outstanding - from the guest relations folks to the bag... More

With proper planning and budget, this can be a great place for a memorable function from weddings, conferences and business expos. Ideally located close to the river bank, clients are treated to beautiful nature views. I thoroughly enjoyed cold beverages on a hot day by the outside bar.
