The Victoria Falls Hotel was built in 1904, at the time when the Cape to Cairo Railway line first reached Victoria Falls, this classic and colonial hotel has been established for over 100 years. Visiting members of Royal families, international and local statesmen as well as celebrities have chosen to stay at The Victoria Falls Hotel.

Being the first hotel to be built it has prime position, with views overlooking the magnificent Victoria Falls Bridge and gorge below.

It has it own private pathway down to the Victoria Falls Rainforest entrance and is also situated within walking distance of the town centre.

The Victoria Falls Hotel has an atmosphere steeped in history. The old fashioned and traditional décor throughout the hotel is full of colonial grandeur and old world charm.

The manicured gardens and beautiful buildings together with the courtyard filled with lily ponds in the middle of the hotel gives a feeling of tranquillity and sheer relaxation.

The 161 rooms are decorated in a way that recaptures the comfortable charm of  a bygone age, with colonial prints, Edwardian styled furniture and well-chosen artefacts.

Some of the deluxe rooms and suites offer breathtaking views across the Victoria Falls Bridge and Zambezi River Gorge, but not all of them, so if a view is important to you make sure you book through an agent who knows the hotel well (like us for instance). We can try to get the best rooms for you when possible, booking quite well in advance is essential for this.

Another word of caution here is that the standard rooms although still pricey don't have particularly nice out looks and are quite small.

Our Opinion

Victoria Falls Hotel is a grand old Colonial hotel - the first hotel ever built in Victoria Falls. It's grandeur and history are certainly an attraction to many of her guests and recent refurbishments make for a very comfortable stay. However, due to its original design many of its rooms don't have the most favourable outlook. If you can try to book one of the deluxe rooms which have much better aspect.

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.
