    Our 6 night stay was both relaxing and enjoyable. All staff members were easy to talk too and happy to assist whenever needed. Very very helpful! Much enjoyed! Especially loved the game drives and fishing trips. 😊

    I think VFalls entrance is US$50 for US citizens. if you are staying at VF River lodge, your national park fees are included. if you want to go to Zambia you will need a visa.
