Victoria Falls Safari Lodge

The award-winning Victoria Falls Safari Lodge nestles in bushland atop a plateau, just 4 kilometres from the majestic Victoria Falls. Its location affords its guests panoramic vistas of the Zambezi National Park as well as views of a private waterhole that is a magnet for all manner of game, from buffalo and elephant to lion and leopard. Its 72 contemporary guestrooms are bright and airy, with large sliding doors leading out onto a private balcony.

Guests at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge and its more exclusive sister property Safari Club (which shares the grounds) enjoy access to a huge thatched, multi-storey main area at the heart of the lodge containing a restaurant, a character-filled bar, a souvenir shop, elevated viewing deck and gorgeous swimming pool set amid lush landscaping.

Things to do in the local area include game drives in a neighbouring national park, sunset river cruises, whitewater rafting, a scenic helicopter or microlight aircraft flight over the magnificent Victoria Falls or lunch on historic Livingstone Island. For something different, consider a safari with the Victoria Falls Anti Poaching Unit (VFAPU), who provide an eye-opening look into local wildlife conservation efforts.

Zimbabwe Overview

Why should I travel to Zimbabwe? Zimbabwe offers amazing wildlife experiences, from the safari parks and reserves along the mighty Zambezi River and Lake Kariba to the vast wilderness of Hwange National Park. The jewel in the country’s crown is the spectacular Victoria Falls. The country has a long history and the ancient stone city of Great Zimbabwe gave the country its name.

When is the best time to go to Zimbabwe?The dry season (May-Oct) is the best time for gameviewing as the bush dries out and game congregates at the precious remaining waterholes. Late in the dry season, there will be much less water going over the Victoria Falls, whilst at the height of summer there will be a lot of spray and it may be more difficult to see the falls.

What is the culture of Zimbabwe? Zimbabweans are known for their rich culture, dance and music traditions. They are also recognised for their fine art and craft including basketware, pottery and the famous Shona stone sculptures. The two main tribes are the Shona and the Matabele.

What is the climate in Zimbabwe? Moderate climate (22°-29°C) though hotter in the Zambezi Valley and around the Victoria Falls where temperatures can reach 40°C. The dry season is from May-Oct when almost no rain falls and the days are warm and sunny. Nights can be very cold with sub-zero temperatures from Jun-Aug. Oct is the hottest month. Rain falls regularly in the summer (Nov-Mar/Apr) turning the bush lush and green.

What can I combine Zimbabwe with? Zambia, Botswana or South Africa. Chobe National Park in Botswana is just across the border and can be easily reached by road from Victoria Falls. Zambia and the town of Livingstone is across the river from Victoria Falls.

How to get to Zimbabwe? Fly from Johannesburg to Victoria Falls. Alternatively you can easily take a road transfer from Livingstone in Zambia or from Botswana. For an Edwardian-style, luxury rail experience travel by Rovos Rail from Pretoria in South Africa to Victoria Falls.
