Pricey as you would imagine for this popular location but our one night stay was well worthwhile. In short walking distance of the Falls and we managed to do different areas at different times. Resident Zebras and Giraffes that can been seen being fed at close quarters a bonus. Monkeys and baboons about and many birds. Staff very helpful. Highly recommend that you spend that bit extra and stay here, rather than in Livingstone.

Dear valued guest, Thank you so much for your feedback o your stay with us. Its good to hear you loved the naughty monkeys, zebras and giraffes and the fact the the falls were only a stone throw away

5 out of 5

Lovely hotel with on-site wild life :)

Lovely hotel right by the Victoria Falls. Rooms were in very good condition - fresh linen, comfortable beds, good hot shower. Hotel facilities were very good - we had the buffet dinner, which was good - nicely cooked without being too overly cooked. The Crocodile Tail was really nice. Staff were very attentive.
