Had a lovely time at this lodge, perfect location on the Zimbabwe River. Great place to unwind after busy days. Preferred the al a carte menu to buffet, personal choice. They do have a shuttle bus into Victoria Falls. Only negative TV had poor reception in bedroom

I'm currently a guest at Azambezi and booked for 5 nights. I've travelled extensively mostly internationally and I really like this hotel; the wild meats on offer every diner, the impeccable customer service and the sporadic citing of wildlife on the hotel grounds. I flew over the hotel in a helicopter whilst I was undertaking a helicopter excursion the other...

The lodge is located 5 kms from the walls on the bank of the Zambezi. The rooms are located in a beautiful garden and the pool area is nice aswell. The rooms are clean, but very small and in a double room there is only a queensize bed, what is pretty cosy when you are both tall... The bathroom is...

Stayed in river view room. Room is small. Bed most uncomfortable and the pillows too. Asked for different pillows but no one attended to the request. Food not up to 4 star standard. Dining chairs grubby and need a good clean. Staff very friendly and smile all the time.

The staff at this hotel are so friendly and helpful. We loved the warthogs keeping the grass short on the beautiful lawns. The river booze cruise was very pleasant with abundant bird life and wildlife. The coffee wasn't good and the self service coffee machine always needed to be fixed or cleaned. Breakfast buffet was very good. The rooms were...

The hotel is situated right next to the river, and we even took a river cruise from them, which was quite memorable because of all the wild animals we were able to see during it. I don't think it is close to the Victoria Falls itself, but it is not that important because transportation was provided from the hotel. The...
