The Zambezi Sun Hotel is a sister hotel to the Royal Livingstone Hotel. This 3 star quality Sun International establishment is located a few minutes walk from the Royal Livingstone Hotel 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 Hotel.

Guests have a pick of 212 en-suite rooms at the Zambezi Sun Hotel. All of the rooms have a private balcony and are characterised by bright Zambian 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. Other services which guests can use at the Royal Livingstone Hotel are the gym and hair salon. Similar to the ones at the Royal Livingstone Hotel, there are gazebos where guests can have massages and rubs. The Falls Resort keeps a few zebra, impala and giraffes 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 Zambezi Sun and the Royal Livingstone Hotels. This is a traditional African restaurant with plenty of entertainment, fire place and grill only opens for dinners.

The Zambezi Sun Hotel is very family friendly and caters for all types of guests. The location in relation to the Victoria Falls is most advantageous. 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.

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
