The iconic hotel is named after the famous explorer, David Livingstone who christened the falls after Queen Victoria. Guests enjoy the privilege of complimentary access to Victoria Falls via a private entrance. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the falls straddle the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia where the Zambezi River drops more than 328 feet into the Batoka Gorge forming the falls itself. The falls are often referred to as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” or the Smoke that Thunders. At 5,604 feet wide, it is the largest curtain of falling water in the world.
