The Victoria Falls Hotel is one of the world’s classic luxury hotels and commands a prime location overlooking the falls, one of the Natural Wonder of the World. For more than 110 years The Victoria Falls Hotel has been one of the iconic properties in Africa. A proud member of Leading Hotels of the World, the Edwardian-style hotel, built in 1904, was splendidly refurbished in 2013 to combine its traditional majesty with modern sophistication.
The hotel was originally conceived as accommodation for workers on the Cape-to-Cairo railway, but today welcomes visitors from around the globe to its 5* accommodation and service. Serene Lily ponds, fragrant gardens and broad verandas offer magnificent vistas, perfect for a spot of high tea or a relaxed gin and tonic, whilst a private path leads to the Falls, an idyllic 10-minute walk away.
Rooms at The Victoria Falls Hotel
The hotel features 161 rooms and suites, each a five-star experience of grandeur and relaxation. The Executive Suites are the epitome of style, glamour and sophistication, all luxuriously appointed with warm, inviting décor. Some of the rooms have views of the Falls and gorge. All of the en suite bedrooms come complete with air conditioning, personal bars and satellite television.
With three superb restaurants, guests are spoilt for culinary choice. The opulent Livingstone Room is ideal for fine dining and dancing, the buzzing Jungle Junction is famed for its breakfast and dinner buffets and Stanley’s Terrace is terrific for sun downer cocktails and afternoon teas.
A sparkling swimming pool, gym and the nearby Elephant Hills golf course are available for energetic guests’ pleasure. A boutique store offers a dose of retail therapy, whilst a beauty therapist is on hand for pampering sessions in the Spa at the Victoria Falls Hotel. Bookworms will be delighted with the library and reading rooms. White-water rafting, helicopter trips, bungee jumping, horse riding, game drives, sunset cruises and hiking are guaranteed to keep adventurous guests occupied. A 10 minute stroll to see the majestic ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ now known as the magnificent Victoria Falls is an absolute must!

ReviewsThe hotel is charming and works hard to retain its colonial pedigree. The refurbishment in 2013 brought its rooms back into contention with its nearby 5* competition, and its location so close to the falls on the Zimbabwe side means it shouldn't be over looked.
