      The Victoria Falls Hotel

      Five Stars above Southern Africa's Biggest Attraction

      The Victoria Falls Hotel is situated in Victoria Falls National Park, a world heritage site. The Edwardian-style, five-star hotel, built in 1904, was recently redecorated and refurbished and now combines the charm of the old with the convenience of the new. Set in lush tropical gardens with lily ponds, palm trees and semi-tropical shrubs, it provides the tranquility and seclusion that many guests seek. The famous Victoria Falls are just a ten-minute walk away using the hotel’s private pathway, and “the smoke that thunders,” or “Mosi-O-Tunya” in the local dialect, is clearly audible and visible from this luxurious landmark. World-class service and food and beverage choice and preparation second to none make the hotel a magnet for international visitors and locals alike. The opulent Livingstone Room for fine dining and dancing, the Jungle Junction with its famous breakfast and dinner buffets and ethnic entertainment in the evenings offer variety and wide choice. Stanley’s Terrace, with its clear view of the Victoria Falls Bridge connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia, is renowned for its cocktails and afternoon teas. Echoing its glorious past, the Victoria Falls Hotel’s traditional rooms and suites are truly a five-star experience. Style and sophistication are trademarks of the hotel’s executive suites, which are luxuriously appointed with décor being warm, inviting and rich with tradition. All 161 rooms are air conditioned with every modern amenity including digital satellite television and a personal safe. The old-fashioned bath tubs of the stable wing turn the bathroom into a haven of relaxation. A large swimming pool, two tennis courts, a library, reading rooms and chapel are part of the complex. Golfers can enjoy 18 holes on the championship course of the nearby sister hotel, Elephant Hills Resort. For guests who wish to take in some game viewing, a three-mile drive (or walk) brings them to the national park and, guided by professional rangers, they will seek out Zimbabwe’s “big five” – elephant, rhino, leopard, lion and buffalo – and be able to capture their encounters forever on camera! A sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River, just upstream from the magnificent falls, is another must for the visitor and will be arranged by hotel staff.
