This is a beautiful and relaxing hotel just 5 min walking from the falls. Excellent á la carte restaurant and breakfast buffet ( the rest of the meals are 3 times more expensive than local). Wild animals inside it

This resort is located inside Victoria Falls Park and has excellent surroundings! Animal roam around in hotel garden (ranger are present too)! Rooms are small but clean and with nice view. Restaurant and pool are nice and all activities can booked from near by office. Fall is in a walking distance.

but at the same time nothing disappointing about Avani. The resort grounds are very expansive and well maintained. Much is centered around the pool area with an open air bar/restaurant area with live music at night. The room was more than adequate, clean and relatively comfortable.

This is going to be a long review of how Avani Victoria fall resort did not meet my expectation of what a resort should be. Considering that December is not a peak season and almost every aspect of my stay have gone wrong, I cannot imagine staying here when it is high season. Room - the floor was not clean...

Stayed 3 nights after touring South Africa. Lovely location, although Victoria Falls were almost within the grounds there was no water in this part of the falls. Had to make our way into Zimbabwe to see water!! This was easily done, and involved walking across the bridge (where the Bungee Jumping and Zip Wire over the gorge take place). We...

We booked when it was the Zambezi Sun and our price quoted by booking.com was kept as originally quoted, which was great. The hotel was great, the room had A/C which worked and as we arrived with 45'c heat this was much appreciated. Entrance to the falls was free and although the Zambia side was dry the rock structure was...

The location of the Avani Resort is a highlight - right next to the Victoria Falls - and seeing wildlife wandering round the hotel grounds became the norm (zebras and impalas). I have to say that the staff were exceptional, and the facilities and standard of the rooms was excellent. The only let down was the restaurant, particularly the buffet,...
