overview

An ideal out-of-town base, this award-winning Zimbabwean safari lodge has spectacular views and is located just four kilometres from Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is positioned high on an escarpment overlooking the Zambezi National Park and boasts its own waterhole, much visited by elephants and herds of buffalo.

There is plenty to keep you busy: enjoy white-water rafting, game drives, adrenaline sports, elephant-back or canoe safaris plus guided bush walks. For gentler pursuits, you may savour delicious vintages on a wine-tasting activity or practice your swing on the 18-hole golf course nearby.

Facilities

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge's bar, the aptly named Buffalo Bar, is an open-plan bar with an elevated platform for excellent game viewing over a much-frequented waterhole. For entertaining meals, head straight for The Boma Restaurant and its famous cultural-culinary experience; if you are after a finer dining experience, then make a booking at Makuwa-Kuwa a la carte restaurant, complete with impressive views over the waterhole.

The on-site waterhole attracts regular visitors ranging from elephants and buffalo to birds and baboons, providing excellent opportunities to spot wildlife without even leaving the lodge. For a bit of game viewing during your stay you can even go on guided walks and nature trails around the property or head out on a game drive to the nearby Zambezi National Park.

Dining

Enjoy lunch and drinks around the pool at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge before considering your dinner options. The Boma Restaurant - voted the best restaurant in Victoria Falls by Tripadvisor - is definitely worth a visit for both a unique dining experience as well as a fun night out. There's a huge buffet with a superb selection of Zimbabwean dishes ranging from game steaks and stews to the local speciality - mopane worms!

Feast on these delicacies while being entertained by the songs and dances of Ndebele performers - ask for your own drum and you can even join in the music-making. After dinner visit the witchdoctor or be captivated by the stories of the restaurant's own sangoma. For a fine dining option, visit the Makuwa-Kuwa. This elevated a la carte restaurant provides superb food combined with excellent views over the busy waterhole below.

Traveller Reviews

  • With regard to Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, the rooms & facilities are very nice. The waterhole provides a lot of interest in one’s “downtime.” We did enjoy having dinner at their Boma.

  • We had no hiccups, and the accommodation at Vic Falls was excellent, I’d highly recommend it

  • Cannot tell you how fabulous our short trip was! The Falls are fabulous! Victoria Falls Safari Lodge was wonderful - we were in one of the brand new "Club" rooms and it was very, very nice.

  • Was also above and beyond what I expected. It is such an awesome designed lodge and the service and hospitality was also excellent. This lodge location is perfect for excursions in and around Vic Falls and they had reliable transport to take one to all the sites in the area. The BOMA restaurant at Vic Falls Safari Lodge also provided an experience in local cuisine, which was absolutely great. I will definately go back there for the Warthog and Eland steaks. Being adventurous we also tried the crocodile tail, which was served cold and it was very tasty. I just did not have the stomach to try the Mopanie worms.
