Vic Falls

I think anywhere would be a difficult act to follow after the bush so while the hotel was fine it felt very busy and noisy after the previous week.

Quite odd to bump into semi tame zebra around the hotel grounds after the previous week too!

Enjoyed seeing the Falls but be aware for a good view you need to traverse the border to Zimbabwe. Cost $55 per person for Visas and the customs formalities and hassle of street sellers are best avoided by having a guided tour another $55 per person.

A ideal hotel

This was an ideal hotel for a short trip to the falls. The location was excellent.

Food and service very good, although rooms a bit tired.

Disney on the Zambezi

It was a bit of a shock to the system arriving here after being in the bush. It was obviously much more commercialised. But the hotel was fine and we enjoyed visiting Vic Falls and did a microlight trip.

We can also reccomend afternoon tea at the Royal Livingstone- yum! The views were spectacular.

Nice place to stay for a couple of days.

This hotel is fine, though in need of a lick of paint in some places. Good location for visiting the falls themselves, but without the "class" and setting of the Royal Livingstone.

So easy to visit the Falls again and again.

Great location, less than five mins walk to the Falls.

Swimming pool and grounds lovely.R esturant expensive, Sguires next door better value, although pool snacks in the day good value.

Activity centre attached to hotel helpful in arranging taxi into Livingstone town.Service very laid back, everything in Zambian time!
