ACCOMMODATION:

Day One

 

VICTORIA FALLS HOTEL

Fondly known as the “Grand Old Lady of the Falls’, the Victoria Falls Hotel is one of Africa’s most celebrated and nostalgic hotels. Built in 1904, in the gracious Edwardian style of the colonial era, this 5-star luxury hotel which offers every modern convenience is set in lush sub-tropical gardens within the Victoria Falls National Park. The ‘smoke that thunders’ is less than a 10 minute walk away along the hotel’s private pathway, and is both audible and visible from the landmark hotel itself. Stanley’s Terrace, long a famous rendezvous for Africa’s adventurers, offers clear views of the Victoria Falls Bridge, part of Cecil John Rhode’s ambitious plan to build a railway line from Cape to Cairo. The ambiance and grandeur of the Victoria Falls Hotel is as unforgettable as the sights and sounds of the spectacular waterfall.
