The Crew visited this lodge and did not have the opportunity of getting the feel of the rooms and only recorded the paraplegic room which was a highlight of this trip. We have not come across or heard of such rooms and believe there should be vigorous campaigns by Hotel and Lodges so that there is no segregation of people... More

Our visit to Victoria Falls was unbelievable, starting with the lodge. The staff was amazing, the rooms very comfortable, the pool glorious and natures neighbors were spectacular! We wanted a relaxing stay on the river and we definitely got it!

On a Gate-1 tour. Always stay at friendly, cleans hotels. This hotel has a friendly atmosphere and is clean. Great location on the river. Pool, bar, restaurant, and excellent location. Not a Ritz Carlton; more like a Comfort Inn Suites.

Very friendly and helpful staff at A'Zambezi. Helped us book our tours and plan our few days at the Falls. Buffet dinners are tasty with great choice and a band playing traditional music and dance in the background.

This is a very nice place with friendly service. Very nice to look at the river and being surrounded by hippo's. The shuttle brings you to the center and to the falls. Beverages are expensive. The rooms are nice and comfortable.

A'Zambezi River Lodge is a mere 2kms from Victoria Falls town, (walking to town is not recommended due to roaming wildlife) and we found the location that much better compared to some of the other hotels that were in town. Beautiful setting, fantastic staff, special mention must be made to the manager, Clopas, about Charles from reception, who went out... More

We were here for 3 nights. Rooms were comfortable but a bit small. Food at buffet was plentiful but nothing special and expensive. We ordered from the menu, despite our waiter being somewhat discouraging about it. Food was much better and less expensive. Must get breakfast with your reservation, as there is nothing else close by.
