Stanley Safari Lodge offers affordable four star accommodation near the Victoria Falls.
Stanley Safari Lodge overlooks the spray cloud of the Victoria Falls on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River. The lodge is set on a hill and has spectacular views over the bushveld. This lodge offers a welcome alternative to the mainstream hotels for a fine African safari experience.
Stanley Safari Lodge offers accommodation in 10 private cottages. Every cottage is individually designed and decorated. Guests can choose between closed cottages or open-sided cottages. Isolated settings ensure privacy at the open-sided cottages. All the cottages are en suite and face the Victoria Falls.
The lodge has an open-sided main house, decorated in a safari theme, where guests can relax before or after activities or around meal times. Delicious European-style meals with an African twist are served in the dining room. The library and an upper deck, which overlooks the sprawling bushveld, are also part of the main house. A special service, 'the private table setup', allows guests to enjoy dinner at any location of their choice from the upper deck to the wine cellar or in the pool area.
An abundance of activities are available during a safari in this area of Zambia including visiting the Victoria Falls tours, elephant-back safaris, helicopter flights, white water rafting and bungee jumping.
This lodge is definitely not for everyone, especially the open-fronted rooms. If you are the kind of person who is adventurous and open to new experiences, you will be richly rewarded. I think Stanley is a far better choice when visiting the Victoria Falls than some of the large hotels on the banks of the river. The feeling of the place exudes the style and ambiance of Africa. The rooms are very comfortable and the food of a high standard. I would recommend the lodge to anyone interested in a unique experience when on safari at the Victoria Falls.Read More
