Avani Victoria Falls review

We had a very nice visit at Avani Victoria Falls. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and when we were cold at night the staff were happy to provide us with heaters (otherwise the rooms do get very chilly at night in the winter).

The grounds are lovely with a huge swimming pool, and zebra and monkeys wandering around. There were ample good quality food choices in the restaurants and at the buffet breakfast. We were certainly glad to be within the Victoria Falls park and it was easy to walk to the Falls.

Unfortunately the Falls only had a trickle of water when we were there (on the Zambian side). Apparently there had been lower rainfall than usual this year so we did not get to see the spectacular sight we had hoped for.

One Night at Avani Victoria Falls

Excellent location to access the falls.

Late arrival and early morning departure so we weren't able to do some of the available activities at the hotel.

Great stay at Avani Victoria Falls

The Avani turned out to be a very comfortable hotel with wildlife in the extensive grounds and amazing access to Victoria Falls.

Great facilities, spacious comfortable room, and good restaurant. Very cheerful and attentive staff.

Avani Victoria Falls review

We felt that the accommodation was average. The establishment was large, impersonal and we had disappointing service at dinner.
It was noisy - both around the restaurant area and in the rooms.
Breakfast was excellent.

The location of the hotel is its redeeming factor and our ability to visit “The Falls” early in the morning when we were virtually the only visitors was special.

Avani Victoria Falls review

We loved our stay at the Avani. We spent our first two days there and as it was our first look at this part of Africa, we were charmed by the game wandering the property.

The room was comfortable and exactly as advertised. Breakfast was superb and the staff very friendly. The location was great and we enjoyed unlimited access to the falls and an easy walk to the Zimbabwe side. Also a good place to do the river cruise (very enjoyable).

We used the proximity to the Royal Livingstone to enjoy high tea (excellent and pricey). We were usually too busy to bother with the restaurant and opted for the pool bar.

As it was busy the service was very slow ( we gave up on awaiting dinner on the second night and just went back to our room).

Civilization with a Touch of the Wild

After being in the bush for several days, we found Avani to have more the feel of a resort, but with the zebras, impalas and giraffes wandering the grounds, still enjoyed a bit of the wild.

It was easy to make tour reservations and were able to go to Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe side for a better view of the falls. Being the dry season, there was very little flow on the Zambia side. A river tour on a speed boat gave us a unique view of the river and wildlife living along the river. We were able to get close to shore to see various wildlife and birds.

The staff of Avani was very helpful and polite and the dining area staff very helpful with special food choices. I did feel their entree menu was a bit limited and would have liked more choices. The buffet at breakfast and dinner was very comprehensive but its usually too much food and a bit pricey for everyday. Nice walking paths throughout the resort to get some exercise and a large pool to relax by in the afternoon were amenities were enjoyed.

There was a gift shop in the back of the resort that we hadn't heard about until coming upon it on a walk. They had unique gifts and crafts to offer that the shop near the lobby didn't have. They need better signage for this area.

Avani Victoria Falls review

Well located for viewing the falls.

It's a big hotel, the rooms are good and breakfast was excellent.

It is a perfectly acceptable hotel, but coming from the intimacy and wonderful experiences of the safari camps perhaps it couldn't stand out.

Short stay at Avani Falls

The hotel was so convenient to the falls! We loved that since we were only in Livingstone for a very short time. We could just pop in at our leisure! Breakfast buffet was plentiful and delicious! Very friendly staff.
