The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is situated just outside the town of Victoria falls and about ten minutes (by hourly complimentary shuttle) to the Falls themselves. This has the distinct advantage of feeling much more like a safari destination with fantastic views across the bush from every room. The ensuite rooms themselves are spacious with complimentary wifi and a private balcony.
The lodge itself is built on the top of a hill and rises over a few floors giving an impression of being almost tree house like. Below is a waterhole which is frequented by elephants, buffalo and the occasional kudu. Visiting the falls is simple enough to do on your own or the lodge can organise a guide for you. Remember to take some US Dollars for the entrance fee as this can’t be paid in advance and only on arrival.
After visiting the Falls, you can walk back up into town to visit the curio stalls and maybe even pop into the Victoria Falls Hotel for afternoon tea on the terrace. One must do activity while in Vic Falls is the helicopter flight over the Falls. This is best early in the morning or late afternoon. Again, this can be arranged at the lodge but it’s advisable to book in advance to stand a better chance of getting a decent timeslot.
If you are keen to do this and haven’t booked already we will be happy to do so for you. The helipad is very close to the lodge and they will come and collect you from reception. Otherwise Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is a great place to relax either to get over your inbound flight(s) or as the last couple of days on safari.
It’s one of our favourites.
