Zambezi Sun review

For a short stay, just to visit the Victoria Falls, the hotel had a superb location – on a short walking distance from the Falls. The hotel is big, comfortable, though would not have been our first choice for a longer stay. For this occasion however, it was perfect. Staff is very friendly.

The helicopter flight over the falls was worth every penny!

Transfers from/to airport were efficient and well in time.

Zambezi Sun review

Excellent location literally five minutes walk from the falls. Staff friendly and service good. Room fine and we liked the pool and bar area.

Our only dislike was that there was only the good but expensive three course buffet for evening meal apart from room service; we would have liked something between the two.

upgraded to royal livingstone which was a major result with this being an outstanding hotel, the other hotel was more of a holiday camp

Zambezi Sun review

Good 4 star hotel with all the necessary facilities but great location and short walk into the Victoria Falls. Would use again the next time I'm there.

Efficient airport 'pick up' and transfer's through 'wilderness safaris'.

Zambezi Sun was beautiful

We felt we had to pay quite a bit for any meals or drinks except for the complimentary breakfast for the amount we paid to stay there. The rooms were nice but the safes in both rooms did not work and the TV in one of the rooms was not working. My daughter got an electrical shock when she touched a lamp switch that was taped up with black tape.

Overall the rooms were very nice and the facility was very beautiful.

Zambezi Sun review

We stayed at the Zambezi Sun purely because of the location and in this respect it was excellent - we could wander down to the falls on our own and it was close the other activities on offer - white water rafting etc. We were not expecting much from the hotel itself but were actually pleasantly surprised - there were a lot of Saga tours and kids but the breakfast was good and the rooms were clean and you can easily eat/drink at the neighbouring Royal Livingstone (which we did) to get away from the tour groups.

The activity centre on site was very helpful in booking activities. If you want to stay close to the falls but do not want to pay the higher prices of the Royal Livingstone then I would definitely recommend the Zambezi Sun. It is not luxury but has everything you need if your focus is more on the falls and the various adrenalin activities on offer in the area.

Very pleasant big hotel - ideal for a short stop over. Loved seeing the zebras in the grounds.
