I would go back if I could. It was beyond expectations. The staff was friendly, food was delicious, rooms comfortable and clean. A short walk to Victoria Falls, and you could hear the falls from your balcony. Zebra and little monkeys were playing in the grounds.I give this place an A plus.

The location is spot on. It is in the middle of a national park so a lot of animals can be seen grazing on the property. Monkeys are a frequent sight and can be a nuisance but the ground staff handle them well. Excellent proximity to the falls and if you are a guest at Avani, all you have to...

Overall the stay was very enjoyable, except we clashed with a major conference. Shutting the restaurant at the bar was not a good option as the conference participants did not use the outdoor smorgasbord and overcrowded the indoor restaurant and my group woud have enjoyed a small meal from the outdoor bar area

Nice hotel. Big clean double room. Best thing is you can walk to see the falls. You can see zebra, giraffe, monkey and baboon on the hotel compound too. Just make sure you close your room window. Else monkey will sure to go in. Restaurant and the bar pool service is a bit disappointing though.

For proximity to the falls this is an excellent hotel. Having said that it just seems to me to be getting quite tired. I have stayed at the Royal Livingstone next door several times, and visited Avani (or Zambezi Sun as it was previously). For me, despite the tired rooms, the big issue is the lack of food options. For...

Although cheaper than it's sister hotel, Royal Livingstone, we still could have cocktails oat the Royal Livingstone watching the gorgeous sunset. Rooms a bit small, but OK. Ideally located for visiting the Falls. Nice grounds, with some wildlife in them - watch out for the monkeys stealing stuff, mind you! Service at breakfast wasn't great, but when we complained ,...

The hotel is well situated close to the Victoria Falls within the Mosi-oa-tunya Game Park. Boasting of zebra, antelope and cheeky monkeys within the hotel, you truly feel close to nature. The rooms are basic with usual amenities and an awesome patio for each room. Lovely poolside bar and restaurant area makes for a good relaxing moment. The conference facilities...

It was disappointing. We went with a great hotel idea and left disappointed. I have been to many hotels and this has resulted from the worst as far as waiter service and restaurant quality is concerned. The menu on the terrace of the pool, unique in that there is no buffet(by the way abusive) , is extremely short. By the...

I stayed with my wife and our two kids. We enjoyed the food especially the breakfast. The Victoria Falls was at it peak and rainbows everywhere! The kids enjoyed the pool. The location is heavenly and good for all sorts of holidays.
