Vic Falls Safari Lodge is without doubt one of the most popular places to stay in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. The Lodge is situated on a high plateau overlooking the vastness of the Zambezi National Park, giving you the superb feeling of being out in the remote African wilderness, yet a short 15 minute drive takes you into the town centre and the Victoria Falls Rainforest entrance.

A waterhole, well frequented by wildlife is situated directly below the lodge which can been viewed from most of the bedrooms, the bars, the pool deck, restaurants and lounges. A constant stream of animals coming down to drink provides 24hr entertainment (the waterhole is floodlit at night).

The central lodge area which encompasses the Reception, the gift shop, the Buffalo Bar, the MaKuwa Kuwa restaurant and various lounges underwent a complete facelift in 2012, and the rooms in mid 2014, bringing the lodge up to truly international standards.

All the bedrooms at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge are en-suite and the sliding glass doors open onto balconies with uninterrupted views of the National park, some rooms overlooking the waterhole. The rooms all have soft natural fabrics and brightly coloured African paintings giving them a wonderful contemporary safari lodge feeling.

There is a complimentary bus shuttle available every hour from the Lodge to designated points in town starting at 07h45 with the last bus leaving at 21h45.

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge has high and low season rates, please contact us for these rates (High 1st July to 31st Dec) and (Low 1st Jan to 30th June).

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is a top of the range hotel and is therefore amongst the highest priced hotels in town but it is well worth it and you wont be disappointed.

Our Opinion

Probably one of the most popular hotels in Vic Falls and for good reason. It has a unique location overlooking a waterhole well frequented by wildlife. Sunsets from the Buffalo bar viewing deck are a must do activity even for people not staying there. The bedrooms all have great views, some of them overlooking the waterhole. The service and food is excellent in fact everything about this Lodge is fantastic and we highly recommend it in this price range of luxury hotels.

MaKuwa Kuwa Restaurant – a la carte – situated overlooking the waterhole (floodlit in the evening) on the open balcony. Internationally styled cuisine, with a hint of African and game dishes thrown in.

The Boma – “The Place of Eating” – Set in the nearby Gusu Forest, just 500 metres from the Safari Lodge. The Boma offers a unique African experience including traditional dancers and mouth watering local dishes. Highly recommended !!

Both restaurants have received major accolades at the recent 'Zimbabwe on a Plate' annual national restaurant awards.

Many thanks for all your assistance. You have probably been the most responsive and helpful tour organizers I have worked with- anywhere in the world. I'll be sure to recommend you to my colleagues and friends.

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
