Appointed in the utmost luxury, the Lodge offers outstanding hospitality together with an authentic wildlife experience. Its also an ideal base for touring the Falls themselves and the many nearby attractions, offering guests a complimentary shuttle service to one of the true natural wonders of the world, and to the town of the same nature. In the Buffalo Bar, Makuwa-Kuwa Restaurant and pool deck, friendly Zimbabwean staff offer excellent service and outstanding cuisine. The Boma - Dinner & Drum Show is located on the same property, and offers a festive African-style feast and entertainment.


Our Thoughts

Not within walking distance of the Falls but served by a complimentary shuttle. The hotel is particularly good for families, and in addition to the family suites, the self-catering Lokuthula units are also great. The new addition, the Victoria Falls Safari Club, operates separately as a private club.

The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge resort boasts two restaurants, two bars and two conference rooms. A complimentary shuttle service transports guests to the Victoria Falls and town centre.  The lodge’s swimming pool overlooks a central waterhole whilst a guest library, TV Lounge, Internet Café, Activities Desk, Curio Shop and 24-hour Reception Desk are all located in the central block of Victoria Falls Safari Lodge.  Victoria Falls Safari Club guests enjoy complimentary WiFi access.  

2 Restaurants

MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant - Split level with a dramatic view of the unfenced Zambezi National Park, and focusing on a central waterhole attracting wildlife year-round, this a la carte restaurant offers a wide variety of internationally styled cuisine, with a touch of African and game dishes. Diners are tempted by gourmet dishes made from the choicest selection of local and imported ingredients, all complemented by a fine wine list. Little wonder then that this restaurant ranks as one of Zimbabwe’s top restaurants.

The Boma – Place of Eating - Described as an unforgettable African experience infused with mouth-watering local cuisine, spirited dance performances and traditional storytelling, The Boma – Place of Eating has over the years firmly established itself as a Victoria Falls highlight.
