Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls Hotel

The Victoria Falls Hotel, affectionately known as "The Grand Old Lady of the Falls", is situated in the World Heritage Site of the Victoria Falls National Park. The Edwardian-style hotel was built in 1904 and is set in lush tropical gardens with Lily ponds, Palm trees and semi-tropical shrubs. The hotel promises tranquillity, seclusion, old charm, and modern conveniences, all within earshot of the world famous falls.

The hotel offers a range of stylish and refined accommodation to suit every traveller, from standard rooms right up to the Royal Suite. The hotel’s corridors reflect and tell the history of this unique part of Africa, and the stories continue throughout the opulent Livingstone Room for fine dining, the Jungle Junction with its famous breakfast and dinner buffets, and Stanley’s Terrace, with its clear view of the Victoria Falls Bridge. Guests can also relax at the swimming pool, tennis courts, library, reading rooms and chapel.

Popular guest activities include professionally guided game viewing in vehicles or on foot, and sunset cruises on the mighty Zambezi River.

Ilala Lodge

Ilala Lodge Hotel is ideally situated on the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls, and is the closest hotel to the Falls and the town centre.

Ilala Lodge accommodates guests in distinguished and elegant surroundings, with all the modern conveniences. The décor evokes an era of early adventure and the quest for discovery in Africa. Guests can relax in the swimming pool, bar, or restaurant. The National Park borders the front of the property and wild animals often graze on the hotel lawns, with the spray of the falls in the background.

There is a wealth of activities available to guests, from adventure sports to guided walks, game drives and Zambezi cruises.

Kingdom Hotel

The family-friendly Kingdom Hotel is situated within the Victoria Falls National Park, a World Heritage Site, and close to the game-rich Zambezi National Park.

The hotel offers a range of accommodation in rooms and suites to suit any taste and budget. As well as a food court, casino and spa, the hotel features three swimming pools and four intriguingly-named bars: Quatermains, The Rapid Pool, The Wild Thing, and The Pit. The hotel’s architecture references Victoria Falls while great domes, pillars and bridges reflect the influences of the ancient Kingdom of Munhumutapa.

Activities that can be arranged for guests include bungee jumping from the famous Victoria Falls Bridge, aerial flights over the Falls, white-water rafting, and sundowner cruises on the Zambezi River.

Stanley Safari Lodge

Stanley Safari Lodge is situated just three kilometers from Victoria Falls, on a hill bordering the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and overlooking unspoilt bush. The position affords fantastic views of the Zambezi river, with the spray of the Falls visible in the distance.

Accommodation is provided in individually designed cottages and suites. The main guest areas feature a dining room, library, lounge, viewing deck, garden, and infinity pool. The open-sided Main House makes the most of the views and captures a truly African feel in a tranquil and intimate setting.

The range of activities in the Livingstone and Victoria Falls area is diverse. Guests can see the Falls from across the gorge or from Livingstone Island, or on a senic flight by helicopter or microlight. Water-based activities include sunset cruises, river safaris, canoe trips, and white-water rafting.


Tongabezi Lodge is situated in a secluded location on the banks of the Zambezi River just upstream of Victoria Falls.

Guests are accommodated in beautifully styled houses and cottages, each with a private terrace overlooking the river. The underlying philosophy behind the design and level of service at Tongabezi is that that nothing is considered too much for their guests.

Activities on offer include boat trips to Livingstone Island (from where David Livingstone caught his first glimpse of the mighty Falls). There are also opportunities to visit local community projects: Tongabezi maintains close links with the local community, allowing guests to gain understanding of the positive impact of their visit to this part of Africa.

Zambezi Sun

The Zambezi Sun hotel is situated on the edge of the eastern cataract of the Victoria Falls in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Wildlife Park.

The resort features warm and earthy architecture, inspired by an African village. The simple finishes are highlighted in bright mosaics and fabrics, as well as intoxicating Zambian artworks and accessories. The hotel is designed with guests' comfort and convenience in mind.

Game-viewing activities offered include game drives, a Rhino safari, horse-back safari, and excursions to the nearby Chobe National Park. Guests can also choose to take part in one of the many adventure activities available at Victoria Falls including bungy jumping, white water rafting, quad biking, helicopter and microlight flights and abseiling.

Royal Livingstone Hotel

The luxurious Royal Livingstone Hotel is situated on the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls. The hotel stretches along the banks of the Zambezi River, and is just a short walk from the entrance to the Victoria Falls.

Accommodation at the Royal Livingstone Hotel is in elegant en-suite rooms with private verandahs. The hotel's colonial-style buildings feature a lounge, verandah, and a sun deck which is built directly over the Zambezi, affording fantastic views of the Falls.

As with all the accommodation in Victoria Falls, there is a huge range of activities available to guests, from game viewing to river cruises to adventure sports.

Imbabala Lodge

This offers fantastic views of both the river and a nearby waterhole, which attracts game throughout the year. A swimming pool and al fresco eating area nestle under ancient trees. There are no fences to prevent animal movement, so expect to see game and wonderful birdlife along the river bank as well as in and around the Lodge.

Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge offers exclusive accommodation for only 20 guests in nine individual stone and thatch lodges with en-suite facilities. Each lodge is beautifully positioned with spacious verandas opening onto sweeping views of the Zambezi River. Imbabala has one family lodge, (Sleeps 4), four double and three twin-bedded lodges.
