Popularly known as “the grand old lady of the Falls”, The Victoria Falls Hotel is situated in the Victoria Falls National Park, a world heritage site, and is a member of the exclusive Leading 5 Star Hotels of the World group. It is one of only three 1S0-accredited hotels in Zimbabwe.

The Edwardian-style five-star hotel, built in 1904, was recently redecorated and refurbished and now combines the charm of the old with the convenience of the new. Set in lush tropical gardens with lily ponds, palm trees and semi-tropical shrubs, it provides the tranquillity and seclusion that many guests seek. The famous Victoria Falls are just a ten-minute walk away using the hotel’s private pathway, and “the smoke that thunders” or “Mosi-O-Tunya” in the local dialect, is clearly audible and visible from this luxurious landmark.

In the late afternoon you will be taken to enjoy a Sundowner Cruise on the Signature Deck of the Zambezi Explorer or the Zambezi Royal boat. A shared return transfer will take you to and from the luxury Zambezi river cruise.

On return to the hotel, enjoy a la carte dinner at the MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant.
