Close to Victoria Falls.

This hotel exceeded our expectations in every way.

The rooms were large, newly decorated and set in well attended and spacious grounds. The public rooms were also well furnished and inviting, the pool large and well maintained.

Food was excellent and the variety at the buffet breakfast was second to none, look out for the waffle station!

The walk to the falls is easy and zebras, antelope and monkeys wander freely in the spacious grounds which are maintained to a high standard.

The free shuttle service to the Royal Livingstone hotel is worth taking and the approach to the falls are seen from a different aspect.

Staff are attentive and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.

Avani Victoria Falls review

Very well located, the former Zambezi Sun is a good choice if you want to be right next to the Falls. A little touristy, and Disney like, with animals roaming the grounds and lots of family travelers.

The rooms are nothing special, but they're all you need, and are kind of fun the way they are decorated. Good food as well. But it's really about the location for this hotel.

Avani Victoria Falls review

This was a great way to finish off the trip, easing us out of the bush and, as promised, the entrance to the Falls was a stones throw from the exit from the hotel grounds.

The Falls themselves were great - we made two 2h visits and still didn't cover it all.

The hotel was just what we wanted with good food and no need to go anywhere else (we'd had enough driving) plus the odd antelope on the lawns.

Great location and service for a family

We enjoyed the location and the whole experience was wonderful.

The only thing that would have made it more comfortable is if they had outdoor heaters at the pool restaurant. It got quite chilly in the evenings and we would have enjoyed our dinners more if we were warmer.

Avani Victoria Falls review

Fantastic location and very good service. Being inside the park and with the short walk to Victoria Falls, we were able to conduct multiple trips to the various trails within the Falls area. Staff were very attentive and welcoming.

As an example, when I realized I had left my fleece on the transport to the hotel a staff member - who assisted us with our bags - quickly called the transport driver who returned to the hotel and provided the fleece. The staff in both the restaurant and bar areas warmly greeted us and efficiently served our requested beverages and drinks.

Our only disappointment was the cost of the dinner buffet the one evening we chose to dine in the restaurant. Although there was an abundance and variety of foods, our appetites did not warrant such an expense. Overall a solid recommendation.

Very comfortable, great location

Staff were accommodating when we asked for a room change as we wished for a different view.

The dinner buffet had a range of choices and the food was good.

Very east to walk to the falls. Staff were very pleasant.

Zambezi Sun review

A great base for the Falls - which could be visited as often as one wanted.

Bar food excellent and really good value. Well worth the walk along the Zambezi to the Royal Livingstone for sundowners and hippos!

A relaxing end to the safari - didn't have to set the alarm!

2 days r&r

Very nice hotel. Comfortable and good food.

Only downside was that we had booked two rooms and these turned out to be at opposite ends of the corridor. My sister was by herself and felt uncomfortable being so far away so we had to ask for a room closer to ours. This was organised but it seemed odd that they had initially given us rooms so far apart - especially as the hotel was quite empty and they managed to find a room two doors down.

Zambezi Sun review

We didn't have high expectations, but were pleasantly surprised. It is an excellent location a really easy stroll to the falls, it was very well maintained and the pool is excellent.

The only suggestion we have is DONT eat in the restaurant for the evening meal. Our agent had said to go to the Royal Livingstone and we did that on the first night - excellent food and service. We tried the restaurant on the second night... it was a debacle. Who would have thought that Potato and Bacon Chowder was in fact potato salad with lettuce and tomato. The other options were all chicken and then were was chicken on the mains. They conceded that the low numbers in the restaurant had caused them problems. We should have eaten at the restaurant around the pool !
