Victoria Falls Safari Lodge

 

Built on a plateau overlooking the Zambezi National Park, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is just 4km from the majestic Victoria Falls and offers a unique wildlife experience.

 

We’re proud to have been voted Best Safari Lodge/ Resort Hotel in Zimbabwe for 19 consecutive years and look forward to welcoming you to the African bush. Our staff are warm and personable, and will ensure your holiday is hassle-free.

 

Built of thatch and timber, the lodge rises several levels, giving the impression of a vast open-plan tree house. Our rooms all have private balconies, most of which overlook a central waterhole, offering the opportunity to observe herds of buffalo, elephant and kudu, as the sun goes down, and hyenas later in the evening.

Highlights

This is the only sunset facing hotel in Victoria Falls, built up above a central waterhole which attracts herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe, zebra, as well as night-time predators, such as lion and leopard.

Incredible natural beauty, and remarkable wildlife viewing combine to awe visitors to this UNESCO World Heritage Site on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, where the Zambezi River drops more than 100m into the Batoka Gorge to form Victoria Falls.  At 1.7km wide, it is the largest curtain of falling water in the world, and is often referred to as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” or the Smoke that Thunders.
