The Victoria Falls Hotel

The Victoria Falls Hotel in Zimbabwe has been the address of choice for more than a century for royal families, statesmen, celebrities and the discerning traveller. From the thundering Victoria Falls a mere ten minute walk away, to the big five that roam close by, this is one hotel that provides an experience like no other.

The Edwardian-style five star hotel, popularly known as “the grand old lady of the Falls”, is situated in the Victoria Falls National Park – a world heritage site. Built in 1904, it was recently redecorated and refurbished and now combines the charm of the old with the convenience of the new.

Set in lush tropical gardens with lily ponds, palm trees and semi-tropical shrubs, it provides the tranquility and seclusion that many guests seek.
