We had a wonderful experience from the sales team who offered to match our price with anyone in Victoria Falls to the breakfast and dinners teams. We experienced everything we were promised. KEEP IT UP VICTORIA FALLS SAFARI LODGE!!! -USA business and management professor-

We stayed here for the third time and not disappointed in any way. The new rooms, the views,the sunsets, and the wonderful choice of food what more could you want. Oh and in the evening over dinner you get live African singing which was superb. There is vulture feeding at 1p.m every day this is an amazing site and helping...

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in both the Safari Lodge and the Safari Club. For a little more money I recommend the Club rooms. The breakfast and dinner at Makuwa Kuwa restaurant were amazing. BOMA is a must see while you're there. The hospitality is nothing short of amazing and it is no wonder many a tourist...

Hospitality at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge was excellent, from the minute we walked in till the minute we left. The main lodge is very impressive and it offers views from several levels onto a waterhole that attracts a variety of wildlife throughout the day - it's fun to sit in the bar or restaurant and watch storks, kudu, elephants, crocodiles...

Nice rooms with a fantastic balcony view. Fantastic shower. Great architecture. Delicious breakfast, but lousy dinner menu for vegetarians. Amazing sunset on the bar deck. Amazing staff. Gift shop way too expensive!

What more can we say about our journey into Victoria Falls? This place is a hidden gem in a prime location overlooking the most majestic watering hole you have experienced. Nothing like drinking a cold beverage watching elephants, buffalos, and giraffes playing in the background. The staff at the hotel is helpful and the waiting staff at the bar is...

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.

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
