Overlooking the Zambezi National Park and just 4km from Victoria Falls itself, award-winning Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is a very comfortable out of town base from which to enjoy the many activities of the area. The lodge is raised on an escarpment overlooking a large waterhole, so there are frequent views of elephant and buffalo from all the rooms. The efficient concierge desk can arrange all manner of activities, from white water rafting and canoe safaris to game drives and golf, and there is an hourly shuttle service from the lodge to Victoria Falls; or just relax by the swimming pool and drink in the views.
The 72 en-suite bedrooms all have private decks and balconies, enjoying panoramic views over the waterhole and the National Park to the west and spectacular sunsets. Tastefully furnished with big extra length beds swathed in mosquito netting, armchairs and contemporary fabrics, all the rooms have air-conditioning and ceiling fan, complimentary wifi, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryer, a luxurious en-suite bathroom with both tub and shower and bespoke toiletries. The larger Deluxe rooms are ideal for longer stays, or there are the duplex King suites with open plan lounge and upstairs bedroom.
Guests looking for a traditional African cultural experience dine at the Boma, tasting local specialities, game and a diverse menu to the accompaniment of traditional dancers and drumming. Or savour the view at the serene MaKuwa-Kuwa in-house restaurant with a la carte menu and fine South African wines. Snacks and bar service can be found at the Pool Deck, which is the best place to watch the daily feeding the vultures below, and the Buffalo Bar has its own game-viewing platform overlooking the waterhole. In between excursions guests can also enjoy the swimming pool, upload photos in the internet lounge or entertain the family in the games room or TV lounge. There are also extensive conference facilities for business people looking for an unusual and inspiring venue.
An excellent place to enjoy all the comforts of civilisation after an African safari, or as a base while exploring the area, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge combines first world facilities with African ambience.
