What a delightful treat. The accommodations were superb and the staff very attentive. The game drive and the sunset cruise were exceptional. What a treat to see the black rhinos. The setting overlooking the water hole allowed viewing of animals as they visited.

A memorable holiday at a wonderful hotel with the most friendly and courteous staff! We highly recommend this hotel at Vic falls with wildlife that comes very close to the hotel.

We are a mature couple who took 6 friends for an "African Experience". We loved the setting, the beautifully preserved buildings with immaculate furniture took us back in time. The gardens were amazing. Sitting on the veranda overlooking the waterhole during the day was always pleasant and full of surprises. The staff and food was always great.

We did a day safari from the Victoria Falls hotel. Although it was 90$-it was brilliant. We had done some great safaris in Chobe and the Okavango but hadn't seen rhino.

Everything was excellent. From the first step into the front door. Staff friendly and helpful. Food good, room good, view good, just everything. I loved the game drive with BBQ outside. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnish. The wine cellar has an excellent choice. Breakfast you sit outside and watch the game coming to the waterhole.
