  • High Tea on the terrace watching the spray from the Victoria Falls

  • Watch the sun rise through the spray from the lawn of the hotel

  • Absorb the history which seeps from every corner of the hotel

  • Just a short walk to the park gate of the Victoria Falls


Opening its doors in 1904, the Victoria Falls Hotel, the 'Grand Old Lady of the Falls', has seen it all over the years. Set in its commanding position with views down to the Victoria Falls Bridge and the column of spray that rises from the falls themselves, it is easy to see why this hotel has been a favourite of visitors for so long.

The grand rooms of the hotel are hung with portraits of colonial explorers, Matabele Chiefs and royal visitors of the past century. The corridors are lined with sable, eland and kudu horns, the size of which are hard to find in the wild today. Sitting on Stanley's Terrace with a deserved drink, warthogs digging in the lawn below, and the roar of the whitewater in the background, it is easy to let yourself imagine you have stepped into a past era.

The hotel is set in lush and well-established gardens providing plenty of space for all at the hotel and forming an relaxing oasis away from the drama of the waterfall, just a 10-minute walk away.
