Hotel Overview

For almost 100 years, visiting members of Royal families, international and local statesmen, and celebrities worldwide, have preferred to stay at The Victoria Falls Hotel, where they are assured of privacy and care. An atmosphere steeped in history, combining the charm of the old with the comfort and convenience of today.

It is one hotel that can truly claim to be unique

Established in 1904, The Victoria Falls Hotel is set in The Victoria Falls National Park with a private path to the Victoria Falls. The elegant lounges offer serenity and seclusion. Corridors reflect all the past glories of the Empire and suites and rooms are superbly furnished in Edwardian-style. The Courtyard entrance overlooks lily ponds, lush flowering shrubs and palm trees.

Dinner and Dining, Restaurants and Bars:

Livingstone Room

The legendary Livingstone Room offers a superb 7-course degustation dinner menu or a' la carte and a Diners Club Platinum Award Wine List with a wide choice for all palates and occasions.

Recommended Dress code is smart. As a result of many requests from visitors, The Victoria Falls Hotel has decided to relax aspects of the long-standing dress code in force in its premier dining venue, The Livingstone Room. This is in recognition of the fact that many travelers do not bring with them the more formal clothes that have until now been mandatory in this restaurant. Smart casual wear will now be acceptable in The Livingstone Room at dinner each evening – long sleeved collared shirt and trousers required for gentlemen and no jeans, sandals or sneakers.
The fine silver-service dining experience that visitors have come to expect will continue to be the order of the day, however.

The Jungle Junction:

During the late 1940's, the Solent Flying Boat service, offered by Imperial Airways, became one of the more interesting ways to travel to Africa. This service flew from Southampton, England to Johannesburg, South Africa. The Solents landed and were serviced on a reach of the Zambezi above the Victoria Falls. This stopover became known as the "Jungle Junction" and was soon the favorite stop on the route, as all passengers disembarked and stayed at The Victoria Falls Hotel.
Breakfast and dinner buffets with Makishi dancers and an indigenous choir entertaining every night
The Africa Spectacular show is performed nightly and consists of a variety of exciting dances performed by local tribes, giving diners the opportunity to sample the wonder and mystery of African ceremony and culture whilst enjoying a dinner buffet under the stars.

Tea on the Terrace:

Traditional high tea is served every afternoon on the Terrace, with spectacular views of the Victoria Falls bridge down the Batoka Gorge with the spray rising from The Falls. Later, enjoy one of the hotel's famous Livingstone cocktails or a gin and tonic whilst listening to the mighty roar of the Falls.

Stanley’s Terrace

Delightful setting for light meals throughout the day. Traditional afternoon tea is served daily, with spectacular views of the Victoria Falls bridge and spray from the Falls below.

Stanley’s Bar

As the day draws to an end, Stanley’s Bar is the ideal pre-dinner spot for relaxation and reflection whilst sipping on one of our signatory cocktails.

The Edwardian Pool:

Cool off and enjoy the splendor of our glorious Edwardian swimming pool set among beautiful landscaped gardens, overlooking the famous Victoria Falls bridge with panoramic views.

Recreational Facilities:

There are two all-weather, floodlit tennis courts on site. A full range of other sports is available nearby, including an 18-hole, championship golf course at Elephant Hills Intercontinental (5 minutes drive from The Victoria Falls Hotel), Casino located at the Kingdom Hotel (5 minutes walk from The Victoria Falls Hotel); white water rafting; bungee jumping; canoing; micro-lighting; game walks and drives; elephant back safaris; helicopter flights over the Falls and cruises on the Zambezi.

Private path to the falls:

David Livingstone, intrepid explorer, sighting the Falls for the first time from his dugout canoe, in November 1855, could hardly believe his eyes at such a spectacle. It is widely accepted that it was he who brought the discovery to the rest of the world; the Falls were named after his Queen Empress, Victoria.
