Victoria Falls Safari Lodge

Victoria Falls

Rating: Deluxe    

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge overview

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge boats an enviable location on a high plateau right on the boundary of Zambezi National Park. It's only 4km from the town of Victoria Falls themselves, but you will feel a million miles away as you sit on the deck overlooking the busy waterhole below the lodge.

They style of the building is that of a wood and thatch safari lodge, though this one is on a larger scale with 72 rooms and multiple areas where guests can relax and unwind.  Service and facilities here are of a high standard and the decor has a vibrant African theme. The MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant has no walls or windows and offers meals with a view. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here, a tasty menu of international dishes with a distinct African twist. On a lower level you will find the Buffalo Bar, the deck here overlooks the waterhole, a great spot for a sundowner. The swimming pool also has its own deck also overlooking the waterhole, here you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the two-tiered pool which is built into natural rocks, while enjoying the views.

The rooms and suites range from standard to deluxe to suites. There are a number of interconnecting rooms which are great for families. All rooms enjoy a private balcony, air conditioning, fan, mosquito net over the bed, a safe, mini bar, tea/coffee station, hairdryer, IDD phone, and the en-suite bathroom has a rainfall shower. The bathrooms in the suites also boast a bathtub.

Mrs. Rosemary Stamp

"Very enjoyable. Lovely to see our first impalas, crocodiles and elephants at the waterhole from the hotel balcony. The children were thrilled to see wart hogs and banded possums in the garden of the hotel. Lovely peaceful cruise on the Zambezi. We all enjoyed the Falls and got extremely wet. Lovely rooms."

Mr. John Beaird
"This is more like a hotel than the other places I stayed and it was tough going back to having to take care of myself again. But the hotel made it easy. "
Doctor Philippa Crehan
"This is an excellent base for wildlife lovers wildest visit in Victoria Falls.. There was a stream of animals coming to the waterhole to drink and also quite a number of birds. We wanted a base to relax after a long journey from the UK and this was perfect. We did a guided tour of the falls which we enjoyed and a sunset cruise which again made a good start to our wildlife experience. We had our first sightings of swimming elephants. The lodge also had a vulture experience which was worth going to where the vultures were fed and there was a talk on how vultures were endangered. The lodge was very comfortable and the food excellent."
Mrs. Julia Ensor
"This lodge is 4 km outside the main street and we were glad as this area is very commercialised and people are constantly trying to sell you their wares. There is a courtesy bus from the lodge to four stops including The Falls and this was very useful. One building is the Safari Lodge and the other is the Safari Club and we had a room at the latter. You have access to all areas and the views are lovely. There is a watering hole which is floodlit at night so you can dine watching the wildlife with a table right on the edge of restaurant if you book ahead. We did not attend the Boma drum night but gather this was fun. We watched 100+ vultures being fed at 1pm and learnt a lot about their plight and the fact they are becoming an endangered species. The staff were very helpful and we booked a sunset cruise and helicopter ride over The Falls through them. We turned out to be the only two on the sunset cruise and they did not cancel it! "
Mrs. Isabel Marriage
"A hotel experience. With great views of the park and river. Lots of activities available. Shuttle bus service works well. "
