We were a little disappointed that inspite of highlighting that we were coming for my partner's birthday, the resort did not make any effort, let alone acknowledge it !

Wow! Wow!
Oh my goodness what a pleasure it was to stay here at Victoria Falls River Lodge. Even the smallest of details was taken care of and the food was magnificent. I would highly recommend (and have done so already) this beautiful lodge to anyone looking for a luxury escape along the beautiful Zambezi River. The staff were so accommodating and there to assist whenever required. I only spent two nights here and really didn't want to leave. Thank you for making my stay so enjoyable and I look forward to staying here again in the near future :)

Great experience with wildlife right at your door
This hotel was great from arrival to departure and would definitely recommend. You arrive by boat to an warm welcome from staff including the manager on duty. The rooms are well appointed with a private pool for each room, comfortable beds and the most amazing view of the Zambezi river. The lodge is not fenced so the chance of being greeted by monkeys or warthogs with your morning coffee if highly likely. The staff are so helpful and lovely making your stay all that much more enjoyable. The food is great quality and in abundance. Game drives or river cruises are offered twice a day and we saw a variety of game each time we went out. This lodge was a great experience for our first time to Zimbabwe and we would definitely recommend.

A perfect place by the river
From the arrival and greeting in the outdoor reception to our tented room by the river, it was a “wow” experience. With more food than a normal human can consume, non stop gin and tonic, excellent game drives and the experience of elephants playing in the river just by our deck, this was a lovely 3 nights
