With a front lawn commanding magnificent views overlooking Victoria Falls (on the Zimbabwean side) and a history stretching back to 1904 with patrons including the British royal family, The Victoria Falls Hotel is intriguing enough as it is. To add to that, it is a member of Leading Hotels of the World and since its 2013 redecoration has perfectly married modern conveniences with traditional elegance.
Originally built for workers along the Cape-to-Cairo railway, the hotel is steeped in history and surrounded by lily ponds, verandahs and manicured lawns. Victoria Falls town, its namesake, and all the exciting activities on offer around it – from safaris and white-water rafting, to helicopter flips and gorge swings – are all within easy walking and driving distance. Back at the hotel indulge in spa pampering or lounge by the Edwardian pool.
Guests at Victoria Falls Hotel can choose from a delightful array of room options, from their Standard and Central Deluxe Rooms, to their Honeymoon, Royal and Presidential Suites. This opulent manor also boasts a private path leading to the Falls, the Livingstone Room for Dinner, Stanley’s Terrace for High Tea, Jungle Junction for breakfasts or dinner and a show, and several other dining options.
