THE VICTORIA FALLS HOTEL

One of Africa’s great colonial-era hotels (built in 1904), in undoubtedly the best setting of any hotel in the Victoria Falls region, the Victoria Falls Hotel offers gracious colonial architecture leading out to expansive terraces and lawns overlooking the Victoria Falls Bridge, with a private path direct to the falls themselves. Popularly known as “the grand old lady of the Falls”, the iconic Victoria Falls Hotel is situated in the Victoria Falls National Park, a world heritage site, and is a member of the exclusive Leading Hotels of the World group. It is one of only three 1S0-accredited hotels in Zimbabwe. The ambience of the hotel is steeped in that history with all suites decorated in the gracious Edwardian style of Zimbabwe’s colonial era.

The corridors reflect and tell the history of this unique part of Africa, with particular reference to the building of the railway from Cape Town to what is now Zambia. It is very much part of the unrealised “Cape to Cairo” dream of Cecil John Rhodes. Décor includes the memorabilia and old-world charm of a bygone era, a nod to the pioneers and explorers whose fame lives on, immortalised in the hotel’s elegant style. Using the mist from the Falls as a beacon, stroll through attractively landscaped gardens along a private pathway, to the scenic Victoria Falls rainforests. High Tea is served on the terrace, a delightful tradition which fits so well with the atmosphere and ethos of this famous hotel.

DINING
The dining options are almost legendary! The Livingstone Room for fine dining in Edwardian opulence; Jungle Junction for great entertainment; and Stanley’s terrace for afternoon tea and sundowners, continuing a 100 year plus tradition. If this is the only reason you come to Zimbabwe, then it is worth it.

ROOMS & SUITES
161 traditionally styled classic rooms and suites, in a variety of categories, provide modern comfort and the tasteful echoes of the Edwardian past. The rooms comprise 37 standard rooms, 58 traditional rooms, 48 deluxe rooms, 7 junior suites, 4 honeymoon suites, 6 executive suites and the Royal Suite. The latter, as the name suggests, has seen reigning monarchs, presidents and, more recently, many famous Hollywood stars among its privileged occupants.
