Eleven rooms with spacious patios look out over a private garden with manicured lawns and indigenous trees. Eight of these rooms inter-lead and are ideal for families or groups travelling together.
One of the benefits of seeing Victoria Falls from the Zimbabwean side is that it has the most viewpoints owing to three-quarters of the Falls being found there. Water flow can also still be seen in the dry season.
There’s plenty more to see and do in the area, including micro flights, canopy tours, game drives, horseriding, whitewater rafting and Zambezi cruises.
