We have stayed for 4 nights and have enjoyed the stay. The hotel is next to Zambezi river with beautiful sunsets. It is about a 15 minute drive from the Vic Falls with a frequent hotel shuttle to Livingstone and the Vic Falls/Border with Zimbabwe.

We stayed here just before Christmas 2018. The hotel was full but the layout is spacious so it never felt busy. The hotel has a rustic African feel about it which adds to its charm and location. The staff are friendly and efficient and nothing is too much effort for them.

I booked for two nights and 50% is taken a week before you are due to arrive. Seems fair enough.

How well does the restaurant cater for vegans?
I'm not sure at all. To be honest I have my doubts about its ability to cater for you
