Enjoy excellent hotel facilities, contemporary comforts and quick access to the world’s largest body of falling water at Avani Victoria Falls Resort in Livingstone. Vibrant colours, ornate décor and intricate mosaic prints combine with Zambian charm to offer chic living spaces, while warm hospitality and a range of thoughtful services will ensure you have a leisurely time exploring the Falls. The hotel is well-equipped, featuring a range of dining venues including an outdoor boma, a large swimming pool and outdoor bar, a children’s club and a sizable wellness spa.

The resort is located a mere 5-minute walk from the Falls, and all guests at Avani have unlimited access to the Zambian side of Victoria Falls for the duration of their stay. Take a walking tour or follow the well-marked trails to discover the sheer size and wonder of this incredible natural phenomenon. Return to the resort for a revitalising treatment at the spa, before topping the day off with a romantic sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. For the adventurous and young-at-heart there is white-water rafting and the famous ‘Flight of the Angels’, which allows you to marvel at the Falls from a helicopter or microlight.

Avani Victoria Falls Resort

Susie Jennings

"We could see the falls so easily and numerous times!"

Meeta Mohan

Zambezi Sun is superb. Vic falls are 2 mins away and access is superb. The setting at Royal Livingstone is breathtaking. The family room was a little tight with 2 double beds but the reception desk was very helpful with dinner bookings and activities bookings.

Patrick Roper

"The Zambezi Sun is a good resort. The service was a little uneven at times and the beds were not the most comfortable admittedly, but the location can't be beat and most of the staff was very helpful and kind."

Anamika Rastogi

"Stay at Zambezi Sun at Livingstone was also very comfortable and it was a beautiful to see thundering Victoria falls at this time of the year at its peak flow. We booked a sunset safari at Zambezi river which was so amazing."

Peter Webb

Zambezi Sun - very nice for a couple of days and the kids loved the big pool and getting drenched by the spray at Vic Falls. Sunsets over the Zambezi River sipping cocktails, a massage at the Royal Livingstone overlooking the Zambezi, Ziplining and a Microflight over the falls were very memorable.
