The Victoria Falls Hotel is a handsome colonial-style structure on the banks of the Zambezi River.
The Victoria Falls Hotel is a grand old hotel that has hosted travelers enjoying safaris at the Victoria Falls for over a hundred years. Throughout the years, the hotel has undergone various renovations, but its charm has endured throughout. In fact, much of the Victoria Falls Hotel has been meticulously brought back to its former grandeur using original photos and plans.
The architecture reflects an Edwardian style, with archways and corridors as well as extensive wood paneling - a colonial flavor for an authentic African safari experience. The hotel has 161 rooms, divided into five different room types. The rooms are spacious with en suite bathrooms, mini-bars, tea/coffee facilities and air-conditioning.
The hotel boasts a large swimming pool, two tennis courts, a library, some lavishly furnished reading rooms as well as a charming little chapel. There is a wide variety of dining options available to guests. These include the Elegant Livingstone Room, where the style, grandeur and history of the hotel is reflected. The Jungle Junction offers a fusion of African flavors while being entertained by traditional music and dances.
The Victoria Falls Hotel offers luxurious colonial-style lodgings and a location that is within walking distance of one of the most popular natural attractions in Southern Africa. I like the sense of grandeur of this hotel. It reminds of a slower paced world. For some years during the great political upheaval in Zimbabwe, the hotel was not visited as often. Since 2010, this has changed and the hotel is once again a favorite amongst international visitors seeking luxury lodgings close to the falls.Read More
