Beautiful lodge, amazingly friendly staff

This place was incredible! The staff were so friendly and attentive and the food was amazing. The tour guide knew the plants and animals so well and we were lucky to have about 45 minutes with some lions all to ourselves. Being right next to the Zambezi River was a huge plus, too, as you have the option of going on a river boat tour and seeing all the aquatic animals and birds or driving around the bush and seeing the landscapes and incredible wildlife. I'd highly recommend this place, especially for families or couples.

Our stay at The Lodge

Victoria Falls Lodge is one of the best Safari lodges we have experienced. The entire staff was fabulous and professional. They made every effort to make our brief stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We wish we had made plans to stay there longer than other places we booked. We sure hope to re-visit this fantastic place in the future. Our heartfelt thank you to all the staff that manages the place.
