The Avani Victoria Falls Resort is a sister hotel to the Royal Livingstone Hotel located a few hundred metres upstream of the Victoria Falls and Avani. This 3 star quality Minor Hotel Group (ex Sun International) establishment is located a few minutes walk from the Royal Livingstone in The Falls Resort, and is also right next to the Zambezi River, although the view of the river from the hotel is minimal. The hotel is on the Mosi oa Tunya Road on the Zambian side, and it is a 500m walk from the Victoria Falls themselves. Shuttle service to and from the falls is available at the hotel, as well as golf carts between the hotel and the Royal Livingstone.

Guests have a pick of 212 en-suite rooms at Avani Victoria Falls Resort. All of the rooms have a private balcony and after refurbishments in 2016, they are characterised by a mixture of African and a touch Mediterranean influence, with bright colours in the suites and lighter colours in the standard rooms. Bathrooms also hint at native patterns blended with northern designs.

The grounds are expansive with all the facilities guests would need from the reception at the entrance which attends to guest services, gift and curio shop and florist, to a very large swimming pool, banking facilities with Barclays Bank, a clinic, Kamp Kwena Children’s Club with baby sitting services. Guests at Avani are welcome to use some of the Royal Livingstone facilities such as the gym and hair salon. Similar to the ones at the Royal Livingstone Hotel, there are gazebos where guests can enjoy relaxing massages and rubs. The Falls Resort keeps a few zebra, impala and giraffe which guests will definitely spot when they walk around.

There are a few dining options at the hotel. Room service is available for all guests; Little Squires is a steakhouse which is near the activities centre; the Theatre of Food is the buffet restaurant near the pool area; the Pool Grill and Bar are on the other side of the pool; At the edge of the resort is Kingfisher Braai area which is a barbeque site available for functions on request. Their Boma is located on the path between the Avani and the Royal Livingstone Hotels. This is a traditional African restaurant with plenty of entertainment, fire place and grill only opens for dinners. The hotel's suites have a dining area for private dining within the rooms.

Our Opinion

We love the proximity of Avani Resort to the actual waterfall itself. The location in relation to the Victoria Falls is most advantageous, and guests at Avani can visit the falls as many times as they like without paying the National Parks fees.

The Avani Victoria Falls Resort is very family friendly and caters for all types of guests and has loads of facilities for everyone. For 3 star accommodations, staying this hotel is a bit pricey. However, the convenience, facilities and services offered at the resort make up for it.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
