"Although much larger than our normal choice of accommodation this was not a problem due to the clever design of blocks of rooms all at an angle facing the waterhole. The waterhole was wonderful, and as we had come here to wind down after our travels we were more than happy sitting on our balcony watching the wildlife come and go. The food was excellent and again the staff coped smoothly with the number of guests. We were very glad we were not in the centre of Vic Falls and the shuttle service was fine for getting to the Falls themselves. "
