Walk through the main lodge of the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge and you will be met by a surprise. You came to Victoria Falls to witness one of the world’s natural wonders? Yes, of course, but the view of this four-star property will also remind you that you are in the heart of Africa and that you are surrounded by untouched wilderness. The lodge offers stunning views over a waterhole and miles of bush.
While the interiors and décor might be slightly dated, the vistas and best sundowner spot in Victoria Falls certainly make up for it. Watch elephants, buffalo and giraffes stroll past, while you have a drink at the Buffalo Bar or try game meat in the MaKuwa-Kuwa restaurant. Activities include a vulture feeding experience – let’s call it a feeding frenzy rather – or booking an hour in their hide beneath the waterhole. The latter allows you to grasp the real size of an elephant up close.
