Built on a plateau overlooking the Zambezi National Park, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge offers luxury and warm hospitality in a hotel that’s been voted Best Safari Lodge/ Resort Hotel in Zimbabwe for twenty consecutive years.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of twenty-four standard rooms, forty-two waterhole facing rooms, and six duplex lodge waterhole facing suites. The standard rooms come with either double or twin beds. They are decorated in soft, earthy hues and each has an en suite bathroom with a walk-in rainfall shower. Each room also has westward facing balconies overlooking Zambezi National Park with magnificent views of the bush. The waterhole facing rooms provide the same set up as the standard rooms with the added feature of a direct view over the lodge’s onsite waterhole, allowing guests the opportunity to watch wildlife from the privacy of their balcony. For the ultimate luxury, the lodge waterhole facing suites have a downstairs lounge opening out onto a private balcony, plus an open staircase that leads up to the bedroom and en suite bathroom with a luxury bath and separate shower. Other amenities include air-conditioning, fans, in-room safes, tea and coffee facilities, and a mini bar.
The Safari Lodge is located near world famous Victoria Falls, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia where the Zambezi River drops more than 328 feet into the Batoka Gorge forming the falls itself. Named after Queen Victoria by Scottish explorer and missionary, David Livingstone, 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. Historically rich, evidence of dinosaur remains from over 200 hundred years ago as well as late stone age tools have been found here.
