On a plateau overlooking the Zambezi National Park, the 72-room sunset-facing Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is located just 4km from the majestic Victoria Falls, and offers a unique wildlife experience.
Renowned for its views over a wildlife-rich waterhole, visited by herds of elephant, buffalo and kudu, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge has been voted the country’s Best Safari Lodge/Resort Hotel for 23 consecutive years by the Association of Zimbabwe Travel Agents.
Built of thatch and timber, the lodge rises several levels, giving the impression of a vast open-plan tree house, with the central area featuring the award-winning MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant, the famous Buffalo Bar, a two-tiered swimming pool and a fitness centre.
There are three different room types from which to choose – the Lodge Standard Room, the Lodge Waterhole Facing Room and the Lodge Waterhole Facing Suite.
All rooms are spacious and light, with glass sliding doors opening on to a private balcony boasting unrivalled views of the bushveld, with most overlooking the central waterhole, offering the opportunity to observe game.
The 24 Lodge Standard Rooms are decorated in soft, earthy colours and each has an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in rainfall shower. Westward facing balconies overlooking the Zambezi National Park promise unforgettable sunset views over the African bush.
The 42 Waterhole Facing Rooms offer the same facilities as our Lodge Standard Rooms, but in addition they have direct views over the onsite waterhole, allowing guests the opportunity to watch wildlife from the privacy of their balcony.
NB: One room in this category is suitable for guests in a wheelchair. It inter-leads into the room next to it.
The six duplex Lodge Waterhole Facing Suites have a downstairs lounge opening out onto a private balcony, and a guest toilet. An open staircase leads up to the bedroom and ensuite bathroom with a luxury bath and separate shower
Dining options include the fine dining à la carte MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant, the more casual Buffalo Bar and the ‘must-do’ Boma – Dinner & Drum Show which offers an unforgettable evening African extravaganza.
The Buffalo Bar offers light meals from 10.30am to 9pm, while MaKuwa-Kuwa serves breakfast from 6.30am to 10am, lunch from 12.30pm to 2pm and dinner from 7pm to 10pm. The Boma-Dinner & Drum Show is open nightly from 7pm to 10pm. Room service is available from 6.30am to 10pm for meals and 24 hours for beverages.
Sit back, relax and soak up the last rays of the African sun as you gently drift along the Zambezi River above the Falls with a gin and tonic in hand and enjoying delicious snacks. Look out for elephant, hippo, crocodile, magnificent birds and other wildlife.
The finale of the cruise is the unforgettable sight of the sun setting over the Zambezi River, turning the sky into a myriad of reds, oranges and pinks and casting shadows and silhouettes all around.
There is no better way to explore the African bush than on a guided game drive in an open safari vehicle. We offer drives in the early morning and late afternoon, allowing you to choose to do this activity when it best suits your itinerary.
As well as numerous bird species, wildlife that may be seen on the game drive, taken through Zambezi National Park, includes elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and other antelope.
Sign up for an unrivaled and breath-taking bird’s-eye view of the majestic Victoria Falls and surrounding areas.
There are three different types of flights that depart regularly throughout the day – a 15-minute flight takes you above the Victoria Falls, a 22-minute flight also takes you over Batoka Gorge and the Zambezi River, while a 25-minute flight includes game viewing opportunities over the Zambezi National Park.
Victoria Falls, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the largest curtain of falling water in the world, can be enjoyed from the Zimbabwean side of the Falls 365 days of the year.
On this tour you will be accompanied through the Rainforest by a qualified guide who will give a brief history of the Falls, as well as detailing the flora, fauna and other points of interest. Stop at lookout points along the way to marvel at one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
Lunar Rainbow tours are available during full moon nights.
Arguably the wildest white water in the world, rafting the mighty Zambezi River is the ultimate adrenaline rush. The Zambezi rapids are officially defined as Grade 5 (Grade 6 being commercially un-runnable).
The rafting experience begins at 7am when you are collected from your hotel.
Save some energy for the steep walk out of the gorge at the end of an action-packed morning, where an ice cold coke or beer and a well-earned lunch awaits you.
Be daring and test your limits with the high wire activities from the ‘Look-Out’, set on the spectacular cliffs of the Batoka Gorge, just 300m from the Victoria Falls.
Experience a collection of mind-blowing extreme adrenaline activities – the gorge swing, zip line, flying fox, as well as a canopy tour, which is suitable for families and children from the age of six years.
