Victoria Falls Hotel

Last updated: 27 December, 2023

The ‘grand old lady’ of Victoria Falls retains a loveable colonial charm, combined with a glorious location – the best on the Zimbabwean side – just a few minutes’ walk from the Falls.

The terrace and expansive gardens have picture-perfect views of the iconic Batoka Gorge bridge, and on blistering summer days you’ll be glad of the large hotel pool.

A range of bars and restaurants mean you’ll be happily fed and water without leaving – don’t miss the High Tea on Stanley’s Terrace – a classic slice of colonial cuisine, with spectacular views of the spray from the Falls.

Surrounding area

Set on a clean quiet street on the outskirts of town, perhaps the only noise that’ll bother you is the chuffing of the luxurious Rovos Rail train arriving at the historic railway siding a few steps from the front door.

The Batoka Gorge and wide-open bushveld encircle most of the expansive grounds, so you’ll feel far removed from the bustle of tourists and tours that characterises the town centre.
