Luxury safari lodges and family-run hotels

There are some things that really do make you gasp. They’re so immense in their scope and beauty that they seem unreal and eclipse your senses with an influx of sound, sight and feeling. As the world’s largest sheet of falling water, Victoria Falls Zimbabwe seems like the stuff of dreams – until you get drenched by the spray and quickly realise that the Smoke that Thunders requires a rain jacket! Those wishing to explore the area should take the time to do it properly – aside from the sight of the falls, there’s also a plethora of activities on offer with everything from helicopter flips and white water rafting to bungee jumping, bridge sliding, and chasing lunar rainbows. 

To get the most out of your experience, be sure to stay in one of the exceptional accommodation options in the vicinity – Zimbabwe is legendary for its hospitality and its Victoria Falls’ hotels don’t disappoint. The most famous is The Victoria Falls Hotel, which is a Zimbabwean institution dating back to the turn of the century.  Here colonial elegance is the order of the day, and dinner dances are still a popular pastime. The eco-friendly Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is another favourite with its own award-winning restaurant and watering hole, while Ilala Lodge is the closest establishment to the Falls – you can watch wildlife graze on the lawn while the mighty spray erupts behind them. Imbabala Safari Lodge is the optimal place for a spot of Tiger fishing, not to mention optimal elephant viewing as the vast herds of Chobe Forest Reserve reside next door. Speaking of elephants,  The Elephant Camp lies on a private concession which allows for up-close encounters with all its animal residents, including its beauteous behemoths. 

We work with all the best accommodation providers in the area, and we’ll tailor-make your trip so you can fall for the Falls in the utmost comfort and luxury. Get free, no-obligation advice to start your journey.
