The Palm River Hotel's idyllic location among towering indigenous trees offers panoramic views of the mighty Zambezi River. Located about four kilometres (2.5 miles) upstream from Victoria Falls, the hotel is a convenient riverside retreat after experiencing all the thrills of the world's biggest waterfall. It's located so close, in fact, that on a clear and wind-free day, you can hear the rumble and see the spray of the mighty 'Smoke That Thunders' from your room.

The Palm River Hotel takes its style inspiration from Victoria Falls Town's rich history and blends it with iconic Queenslander architecture – discerning travellers will love the high ceilings and spacious verandas that add to the hotel's luxurious and capacious feel.

Adventure seekers will enjoy experiences like white-water rafting, bungee jumping, and microlite or helicopter flights over the waterfall – Victoria Falls is known as 'Africa's Adventure Capital' after all. And there's no better way to end the day than taking a boat cruise along the Zambezi, spotting crocodiles, hippos and elephants while marvelling at a golden sunset, ice cold drink in hand.


  • Luxurious hotel on the banks of the Zambezi River
  • In close proximity of Victoria Falls
  • Variety of well-appointed suites
  • Beautiful river views from the rooms
  • In-house restaurant serving à la carte meals


  • Day tours
New kid on the block, sleek new look for Victoria Falls with service and amenities to match.
