The Four Star A Zambezi River Lodge was completely refurbished in 2011 at a cost of US$4.5 million, the biggest investment of its kind in Victoria Falls in the last 10 years. The hotel is owned and managed by the Rainbow Tourism Group (RTG) who also own the Rainbow Hotel in Victoria Falls and many other hotels throughout Zimbabwe.

The A Zambezi River Lodge is located right on the banks of the Zambezi River about 5kms out of the town and 6kms from the Victoria Falls entrance gate. No other hotel in Zimbabwe has this situation on the river and it's truly lovely.

A hotel shuttle bus goes into the town every 2 hours so even though you are a little way out of town it does not prove to be a problem.

On arrival an impressive water feature and teak covered walkway lead you through to the reception whereupon your eyes are treated to a wide view of the Zambezi River. Setting the mood and scene for this great hotel.

The thatched double story A Zambezi River Lodge is set in well maintained gardens with sweeping lawns down to the river. The sparkling swimming pool finished in chip tile is very inviting.

Warthogs can be seen roaming the lawns and a local resident hippo comes up most nights from the river to graze.

All rooms have been finished to a very high standard with all the latest mod cons. Highly efficient air-conditioners cool your room in minutes which is very welcome in the very hot summer months. The beds are very comfortable and everything is clean and new. The attractive neutral decor is very appealing.

The lodge is also the closest hotel to the gates of the Zambezi National Park.

It's an excellent family hotel with a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and is an ideal location to spend a few days in Victoria Falls.

Our Opinion

The A Zambezi is located 6kms from the Falls which might be considered as a problem for some but a regular hotel shuttle bus into town and collection by the activity operators negates this issue. The out-of-town feel and its unique and beautiful location right on the banks of the Zambezi River makes the A Zambezi a good option. For SADC clients the rates are in Rand and incredibly well priced for Vic Falls - this hotel is by far the best value for them. But for international clients I don't believe it is such great value and it would not be my first choice.

All the activities lived up to the hype!
by Alex (Swaziland)
Good Afternoon Boo,
Just wanted to let you know that we are now back in Swaziland and had an incredibly fun time enjoying Victoria Falls! All the activities lived up to the hype and I would like to thank you for all your help in organising a busy but full holiday for us! Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Also wondering where you prefer to have your reviews written?
Thanks again!
All the best

Memory I will not forget
by Sunitha
Hi Jane
Hope you are keeping well.I must say a very big thank you for all your assistance and advice for my trip. I had the most amazing time at Vic Falls, a memory I will not forget.
Thanks a million once again.

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
