Great stay at Victoria Falls Hotel
Very nice hotel. Room was lovely with a great view on the garden and the bridge.
Restaurants were good (both Jungle Junction and Linvingstone Room) and not too expensive.
Breakfast was very good as well, with a large choice of food.
Stay in Victoria Falls was interesting - we did the walk around the Falls, which is great. However, the sunset cruise on the Zambezi river is too expensive and without interest
A great colonial experience
Frankly a must in my view for someone visiting Victoria Falls and going on to a Safari......amusing that Zimbabwean visas for anyone from Europe costs "only" US$ 30 and yet for Bits it's US$ 55! Regardless of your views re the politics of the country, the staff are great and the colonial experience somewhat unique. Not more than 2 nights....but the a la carte dining experience in the Livingston Room was interesting.
In viiew of the above, I think the lack of coverage of the Hotel in the Bradt guide to Botswana (which has a section on Livingstone which is on the Zambian side of the Falls) was odd......particularly bearing in mind that the guide was otherwise excellent.
Enjoyed it very much.
The activities--lion walk, elephant walk, helicopter ride--were great, although at $150 a pop, for the four of us it added up to close to $2,000. Other than the cost, no complaints.
Expert Africa comments
Expert Africa would like to make it clear that for ethical reasons we do not book the lion walking activity in Victoria Falls. If guests would like to do this activity then they are of course able to book it independently as these travellers did. We would however encourage anyone considering booking this activity to talk to us first so that we can make you aware of our stance and the reasoning behind it.

The Falls were awe inspiring and access from hotel could not have been better.Read more about the whole trip
Recently renovated old school colonial hotel
It's a predicable choice but a lovely place to end a safari. Hard to go wrong and worth splashing out on a nice room.
Recently seen some renovation work which was well done but still feels authentic. And well run and staffed too.
excellent stay at Victoria falls hotel
Excellent quality and service, with perfect access to the Falls.
Very glad we choose this hotel.
Lived up to its reputation
We loved the sense of history and the service was great.
Thank you for putting us in the stable wing, they treated us very well with complimentary massages and drinks. Seemed just the right way to finish the trip.
Victoria Falls Hotel
A true five star hotel very much in the colonial style. Our room was extremely comfortable and relaxing, which was just what was required after eight days on safari, being bounced around in a Land Rover.
Three restaurants provide differing dining experiences, although we were unable to sample all as our stay was limited. The evening entertainment at the Jungle Junction restaurant was excellent and slightly hypnotic.
The location of the hotel for visiting the Falls is excellent. Just a short, albeit hot, walk to the Park entrance.
This hotel provided an excellent conclusion to out outstanding Botswana Safaris.
Victoria Falls Hotel review
We enjoyed the hotel. It felt a bit like living in the past as it is very traditional - but we enjoyed the feeling.
Front desk staff were a bit grumpy looking but the waiting staff were very cheerful and helpful.
