Pristine environment and calms your nerves and you feel relaxed from the time you arrive at this hotel. Staff are welcoming really showing you they appreciated your decision to stay there and the breakfast is great and rejuvenating every morning new day. Simply awesome and a next stay always a must!

It was wonderful to be welcomed by monkeys, giraffes and zebras! Roaming the property freely, it was amazing to see the animals regularly. Beautiful property, helpful staff, and good food made our experience wonderful.

Usually stay there for both social and business purposes. In walking distance to the Victoria falls with its own side entrance to the falls which is great and perhaps one of its strongest selling points. Restaurant serves good food. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Gardens were recently enhanced and look beautiful!!
