North West Zimbabwe

Rating:     

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. It's a wonderful place to stay giving you a safari experience and feel while only being a few kilometres from the town, there's an hourly complimentary shuttle between the lodge and town too, so you have the best of both worlds.

There is a well-stocked curio shop and an activities desk so it's easy to arrange any additional activities that might take your fancy.  There is plenty to do in Victoria Falls from a flight over the Falls, to a river cruise, bungee jump, white water rafting to simply enjoying the wonderful sight that is Victoria Falls - The Smoke That Thunders!

Evelyn P (22/06/2017)

"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. "

Mrs. Julia Ensor (09/04/2017)
"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. Rosemary Stamp (01/04/2017)
"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."
