Relax in colonial-style luxury at this charming hotel. Built in 1904, the Victoria Falls Hotel is known as “the grand old lady of the Falls” and was the first to be built in the area. While still maintaining that Edwardian appeal, it has all the modern additions one expects from a truly 5-star establishment.The hotel sits comfortably among its manicured gardens, which stretch out all around it. An unobscured view of the Victoria Falls bridge and the powerful spray from the falls provides a magnificent backdrop to the grounds, from which guests can take a mere 10-minute stroll to the entrance of the Victoria Falls rainforest itself.

Decorated according to its rich, colonial history, each room has the addition of air-conditioning, satellite TV and safe. The 67 rooms are all spacious and well appointed with magnificent views.

The hotel has three restaurants, offering elegant dining from a sophisticated a la carte menu and extensive wine list at The Livingstone Room, and a more relaxed atmosphere at The Jungle Junction, which is situated near the pool and offers a tasty African-fusion menu. The Stanley’s Terrace offers the Victoria Falls Hotel’s legendary High Tea, which is served overlooking the Victoria Falls Hotel Bridge and is considered a must at least once during your stay.

There is a wide range of activities on offer. Facilities at the hotel include a tennis court, as well as a large swimming pool, or you can enjoy a relaxing massage or treatment at the hotel spa. The thundering Victoria Falls may be visited on foot, or you can take a canoe or boat cruise down the mighty Zambezi. Take a thrilling game drive or a bush walk with one of a team of experienced guides. You can even take in the sights from the back of an elephant on an elephant back safari. Bungee jumping and white water rafting is also available for those with a taste for the more adrenalin pumping activities.

The Victoria Falls Hotel is an experience in itself and offers guests a unique charm and friendly service in a magnificent setting.
