Victoria Falls has great hotel choices – how to choose?

In addition to all the activities available at Victoria Falls, you’ve got another big decision to make. Where will you spend the night?

Depending on your preferences, there are a number of choices that all carry the “highly recommended” rating by DougBardwell.com

 

CLOSE TO TOWN IN CLASSIC STYLE

Originally built by the railroad in 1904, this “Grand Ole Lady of the Falls” has hosted royalty, celebrities and discerning travelers from all over the world.  Overlooking the gorge, the Victoria Falls Hotel offers a range of accommodations, dining choices and activities – but all are done in elegant style and with impeccable service.

Over 161 rooms, some with views to die for, will ensure a comfortable night’s sleep. In the morning, you are but a five to ten minute walk away from the city center and the falls.

OVERLOOKING A WATERING HOLE

The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is the perfect place for game watchers. With a large watering hole centered directly below the lodge, you can watch game cross the property from your room’s deck, from the restaurants and even from the outdoor swimming pool.

72 Rooms with all the comforts of home, and then some, are laid out high on a hill overlooking the African bush.

Down the hill, just a short walk away is the award winning Boma Restaurant where dining is an event every evening. Entertainers get you involved with singing, bongos, face painting, fortune tellers and certificates for those who dare eat a whole Mopani worm.
