The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is an award winning lodge set just five minutes away from the Falls themselves, enjoying views over a productive waterhole, the surrounding bush and with the spray from the waterfall in the background.

The lodge is made up of 72 en-suite bedrooms, all with private decks and great views from the elevated position. If you feel like a more relaxed day there's a large sun deck with swimming pool, also enjoying the views as wildlife comes to drink from the waterhole below.

Enjoy the combination between the excellent safari activities available here: game drives and guided walks, river safaris and tiger-fishing and photography from the hide, as well as the more falls-focussed and adrenalin filled activities like white-water rafting and bungy jumping.

There's 24 hour reception service with concierge to help you make the most of your time at the falls. A complimentary bus service runs hourly into town, there's wifi throughout, an internet lounge, tv lounge and a babysitting service.


The 72 rooms all have safes, telephones, a/c, hairdryers, fans, toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities and extra length beds. The rooming types are split between twin or double standard rooms, deluxe rooms and king suites. All have private decks with views towards the sunset and five rooms can accommodate a rollaway bed.


Babysitting services are available on request.


The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge has a private activities desk, available only to in-house guests. Some of the activities you can experience at the lodge include guided safari walks along nature trails in the bush, great bird watching, a fantastic hide located next to the waterhole. There are a number of restaurants, and a large swimming pool and deck.

In the wider Vic Falls area you can enjoy game and night drives, golf, white water rafting, river and dinner cruises and much more.

Location & Directions

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is located about five minutes outside of Victoria Falls Town off the Bulawayo Road. From the deck of the hotel it is possible to sea the spray from the Victoria Falls at the same time as enjoying views of the lodge waterhole and bush stretching below.

When to go

There are two very distinct seasons at the Victoria Falls, the wet/flood season and the dry season. These seasons do not reflect the quantity of rain, rather reflect the volume of flow of the Zambezi River. From around March through to July the river surges in size as the rainfall in Angola and Zambia from months before swells the current. The falls are at their most dramatic at this time of year with huge columns of spray. The nights are cold and the days warm at this time of year. From around September to January the water levels drop, the falls are more accessible and views are clearer as the flow can drop in volume by 90%. It is worth noting that the rains come from late October through to February, this combined with high heat, 40 celcius or more, in October and November, causes high levels of humidity.
