Rooms are well equipped,clean modern and offer complimentary water and WiFi.also offer free shuttle to town. Only reason they get 4*not 5* because of their prices. Had a few meals at the restaurant which were good but...

Stayed in river view room. Room is small. Bed most uncomfortable and the pillows too. Asked for different pillows but no one attended to the request. Food not up to 4 star standard. Dining chairs grubby and need a good clean. Staff very friendly and smile all the time.

The staff at this hotel are so friendly and helpful. We loved the warthogs keeping the grass short on the beautiful lawns. The river booze cruise was very pleasant with abundant bird life and wildlife. The coffee wasn't good and the self service coffee machine always needed to be fixed or cleaned. Breakfast buffet was very good. The rooms were...

The hotel is situated right next to the river, and we even took a river cruise from them, which was quite memorable because of all the wild animals we were able to see during it. I don't think it is close to the Victoria Falls itself, but it is not that important because transportation was provided from the hotel. The...

Very nice Lodge with great accommodation and right on the river. All the staff are outstanding, helpful and always happy smiling. Nice surrounding with some life wild animals. Food is good but not like gourmet. Service always happy to help. A bid out of town, supplying a free bus ride 4 times a day.

We stayed at A'Zambezi for 3 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was good, a bit pricey for us South Africans, but I guess that's part of the holiday. And the lodge itself is very pretty and well maintained. We got a room towards the back which was perfect for us as we enjoy the quiet.
