Victoria Falls Hotel: Stay Next to One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World

Victoria Falls Hotel

A stay at the Victoria Falls Hotel, popularly known as "the grand old lady of the Falls," means you'll have a privileged position in Victoria Falls National Park, a world heritage site in Zimbabwe. The famous falls are just 10 minutes away on the hotel's private path, and can be clearly seen from the hotel's front terrace. Set in lush tropical gardens with lily ponds and palm trees, the hotel is a member of Leading Hotels of the World. First built in 1904, the colonial-style hotel features 161 guest rooms, a large swimming pool, two tennis courts, a library, and numerous dining outlets, including the Jungle Junction, the Livingstone Room, and Stanley's Terrace, where adventurers have gathered for a century to partake in afternoon tea or cocktails while looking out over Victoria Falls Bridge, connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia. Don't miss a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, just upstream from the mighty falls, where you can see crocodiles and hippos.
