Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is a beautiful resort in a prime location. Really loved the accommodations! The rooms were wonderful with great views. Really liked that most of the rooms and the bar - restaurants overlooked the animal watering hole. The entire staff was wonderful.

This lodge, perched on the edge of the game reserve, is one of the best choices in Vic Falls. Rather travel the 3km to the falls via the free lodge shuttle & have the bliss of being able to sip a drink on the deck or on your private veranda, and view the hoards of wildlife across the plains making...

This was the best placed we stayed . Wonderful views and superb architecture , has to be one of the best lodges of its kind. The food was superb, in the dining room. The nearby "show" and bar b que night was rather disappointing. BUt a wonderful place to stay. Would definitely go back.

Staying at safari lodge was nothing but great- a must to stay at. Was honestly one of my best stays at any establishment. Absolute friendly, efficient and helpful staff second to none. Fine location, slightly out of town which adds a very special feel to the property.

Excellent lodge with a view of a waterhole. Vulture feeding every day. Varied breakfast with friendly staff. Maybe challenging for handicap due to various level with stairways access.Will need transport for Falls or shuttle to go downtown. " walking with the Lions" is a walk with live lions and will be able to touch the lion.

We arrived late, again, due to a flight delay. Our room, although small, overlooked the watering hole. Saw elephants as soon as we settled in. The shower, however, was the best we every used. Bravo to the design. The breakfast was tasty and grand. The restaurant had game as well as"regular" food. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating.

Wonderful hotel in the heart of the natural surrounds with animals that abound at all hours and a truly great place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief time in Victoria Falls and all the activities that were supplied by the hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Voted the best Safari Lodge in Zimbabwe for 20 years running, the world-famous Victoria Falls Safari Lodge offers easy access to the iconic Victoria Falls, coupled with a wildlife experience that is truly unrivalled. Now in its 22nd year of welcoming guests, the Lodge is built on a plateau overlooking the Zambezi National Park with endless unspoilt views to the horizon, just four kilometers from the Falls. This is the only sunset facing hotel in Victoria Falls, and the newly-renovated rooms and balconies are 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. Our warm and personable staff are our greatest pride. Past guests frequently comment on our team's sublime hospitality and seamless delivery. The main areas of the lodge, such as the MaKuwa-Kuwa restaurant and the homely Buffalo Bar, are rich in ambience and also overlook the central waterhole, where drinks and dinners are often shared with wildlife meandering down to the water each day to quench their thirst. ... more   less
