Victoria Falls

Places to stay near Victoria Falls, in Zimbabwe

Below we've noted notes down suggestions for where to stay in and around the town of Victoria Falls - on the south side of the great Zambezi River, in Zimbabwe. As an alternative, some travellers choose to stay in or near the town of Livingstone, in Zambia, on the North side of the river.

Both areas great and very close to the famous waterfall, and both have their pros and cons - depending on how you're arriving and leaving, and what activities you want to do whilst you're here. So read on below, and then chat to our experts before you finalise your plans.
