Client Rating for Zimbabwe 5/5 from 3 reviews

Nicely positioned on the Zambezi river. We were there 2 nights and what with doing a tour of the falls, a helicopter ride and a sundown cruise, we did not have time to use the free shuttle into town. Made a good start to the holiday. Bar a little on the expensive side.
