Right next to Victoria Falls and not terribly far from the airport. Very nice hotel rooms and great services. They can help you organise a lot of tours that'll pick up and drop off at the hotel as well. If I had to pick on things, food was good, but can certainly do with a bit more variety. And the...

My title says Epic and that is what aptly describes the experience. The resort is designed to make you forget about the stresses of the real world. THe reception area itself is a welcoming troop with drums and spears, the poolside and bar is damn near tear jerking. The food is pretty decent, the rooms are spacious. I honestly cannot...

Its was a nice experience to view the Victoria falls. The falls is at a walkable distance from this resort. We were able to view giraffes and zebras just from our room and they also roam around in the resort. It looks very natural. We can absolutely relax ourselves at the pool.

With only a short transfer from the airport this is a great place to visit the falls. With the falls and the Zambezi just a stroll from your bedroom. We enjoyed the guided tour of the falls and the river cruise on the African Queen. B & B with bar snack was good and the staff very friendly. Plenty of...

Overall the hotel is still very worthwhile having stated there six times. Pity that the service at times in the restaurant is not at the expected level considering the hotel rate that is being paid. Some minor deficiencies in the room - toilet seat was loose, basin plug operation was not working.
