The Victoria Falls Hotel, one of the world’s leading old hotels and the grand dame of Victoria Falls, enjoys sweeping views across rolling lawns to the spectacular Falls. Bizarrely, this iconic hotel was originally conceived as accommodation for workers on the Cape-to-Cairo railway. There is a private path leading from the hotel grounds to the Falls, a mere 10-minute walk away. Some rooms offer stunning views of the Falls, gorges and bridge below.
Everything about this grande dame is steeped in history from a bygone colonial era, with original paintings, photographs and memorabilia in the corridors to the exquisitely private lounges that cocoon you in seclusion and serenity. The Livingstone Room offers elegant dinners and dancing, Stanley’s Terrace is the go-to place for that quintessential Gin & Tonic and Club Sandwich, High Tea and sundowner and Jungle Junction delivers a breakfast spread to power your entire day. Other on-site facilities include a swimming pool, hair salon, beauty therapist, library and reading rooms, curio shops, activity desk and free WiFi.
The Victoria Falls Hotel features 161 rooms and suites, many with unique quirks and historical backgrounds. These include renovated rooms from the original hotel with excellent views of the Falls, to a recently built wing that offers a number of complimentary added value inclusions.
Guests are tempted to dwell within the grounds of this iconic sprawling hotel, but of course Victoria Falls offers many attractions that cannot be missed. The activities desk at Victoria Falls Hotel will arrange your every need, including bush dinner, zip line, game walk, horse riding, game drive, bird watching, crocodile farm, golf, curio shopping, fishing, sunset cruise, white water rafting, canoeing, river cruise, upper river canoeing, abseiling, foofie slide, bungee jumping, gorge swing and helicopter flights.
