Victoria Falls Accommodation Zambia

The Zambian side of The Victoria Falls is known as "Livingstone". There is a wide variety of accommodation options but they are spread out over quite a distance, some along the river whilst others are in Livingstone town itself

The "Victoria Falls" are located on the Zambezi river which is the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, the falls are therefore shared between the two countries. So one of the first decisions one needs to make when deciding to come and see the Victoria Falls is - which side of the falls you are going to stay on?

On the whole accommodation in Zambia is more expensive than on the Zimbabwean side of the falls. If you are undecided as to which side of the falls to stay on then this information will be of use to you Zimbabwe vs Zambia.

There are numerous hotels and lodges on the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls from backpackers lodges to luxury hotels, most of them however are located more than 10km from the falls themselves in Livingstone town or on the Zambezi River further upstream. There are only two hotels right within walking distance from the falls, and right on the banks of the Zambezi River namely the Royal Livingstone hotel and the Avani Victoria Falls Resort.

Please bear in mind when looking for accommodation on the Zambian side that if you choose one of the hotels that are situated further away that you will incur extra costs for transfers or taxis to any of the activities you decide to do. Whereas in Zimbabwe because the whole town is located closer to the falls the transfer fees are included in the activity price.

The Livingstone Airport (now the Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport) is about 3.5km from Livingstone town and 15kms from the Victoria Falls themselves. It is a good idea to pre-book an airport transfer when you make your accommodation booking to ensure that you get there and back without hassle.

We specialise in accommodation on the Zimbabwean side of the falls, but we have detailed below a few Zambian accommodation options for you to have a look at.

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

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
