The Kingdom Hotel Victoria Falls was built in 1999. This architectural masterpiece is designed in the style of The Great Zimbabwe Ruins. The design and bright African themed décor makes for a great atmosphere and authentic feel.

It is one of the closest hotels to the Victoria Falls being a short five minute walk away down a private path from the hotel. Please note that this path goes through part of the Victoria Falls National Park, which is not bound by any barriers. Therefore, wildlife roam freely in the area and you may encounter warthogs, elephants, kudu, and sometimes (though rarely) even lion. We encourage you to keep your distance and have respect for these wild animals.

The accommodation at the Kingdom is extremely well priced for this area and is good value for money. It is one of our recommended hotels.

The design of the Kingdom Hotel Victoria Falls has taken into account the needs of families, groups, conferences and holiday makers wanting a fun, resort style hotel.

The Kingdom Hotel Victoria Falls also has a beautiful pool area with two swimming pools, a pool terrace with one of the resort’s many bars.

A great deal of attention has been paid to the smaller details such as the cast iron ‘seed-pod’ bar and the hand sculpted statues on the lawn – all adding to that ‘magical kingdom’ effect.

The hotel has 294 rooms which are situated in separate two and three storey units, built around the large water feature lake. The rooms are bright and spacious and decorated to match the African theme.

The newer wing called the Kings Club is a refurbished section of the hotel, but offers more services to guests. Additions such as complimentary airport transfers, a personal hostess throughout your stay, a bottle of wine and complimentary hand massage, gives an extra special experience as a guest of the Kings Club.

All the rooms have balconies and some of them overlook the lake, while the others overlook the property's gardens.

Many of the rooms have extra bunk beds for families and there are two twin bedded paraplegic rooms.

There are also four suites each with a separate lounge and extra bedroom, as well as a mini bar.

The Kingdom Hotel Victoria Falls also has elevators and ramps to assist guests with special needs.

Our Opinion

Kingdom Hotel is a large family friendly hotel located only five minutes walk from the Falls. For the mid-range hotels this would be our favourite choice. It has interesting architecture and great pool area which is ideal for families. The hotel food is not great and is expensive so try not to go for an all inclusive deal which includes meals, rather eat out at some of the other restaurants in town or the hotel food court. It has a casino onsite which appeals to some guests although it is small and not that vibrant. For this price range you can't go wrong staying at the Kingdom Hotel Victoria Falls.

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.
