The Best Victoria Falls Choice

We stayed at A'Zambezi two nights at the beginning of our safari trip & one night at the end, and it was an absolute pleasure. The location is beautiful - right on the serene riverbank. I definitely recommend the rooms facing the pool and river. I would recommend staying here over the places in town as it is more peaceful, scenic, and relaxing. Town can be a bit tiring and overwhelming after a while, and the A'Zambezi is a welcome oasis. The hotel offers a free shuttle, tour operators will pick you up for activities, and taxis to town are about $10 if needed.

The hotel is clean and beautifully appointed. I loved relaxing in the open common areas and watching the warthogs mow the lawn. The vervet monkeys are endlessly entertaining, and we were fortunate to see a group of about 30 mongooses stop by! It was relaxing to stroll under the trees along the river. The patios outside each room offer a private space to enjoy the outdoors. Breakfast was varied and plentiful.

I've saved the best for last. The staff are absolutely outstanding - truly kind, welcoming, and hospitable. On our return at the end of our safari tour, the staff went out of their way to accommodate me as I was very ill. They made arrangements to get me a room early, stopped by a few hours later in person to check on me, to offer to call a doctor, and to make a special homemade electrolyte solution for me. Another staff member whom we had befriended at the beginning of our stay made a special effort to stop by at turndown service to make sure that I was OK and to wish me well. Thank you to all of the A'Zambezi staff - you are wonderful people.

Highly recommended overall!

P.s. Please give special regards to Tarisai from Gina and Uncle Bead.

Our adventure began in earnest with a sunrise elephant-back "safari." I had mixed feelings about the whole idea, and I still do, but it was amazing to spend time in close proximity to such magnificent beasties. Leaving the hotel bright and early at 6:30am, we were transported to a private concession where the elephant herd resides. The elephants in …

The journey begins somewhere around the unholy hour of 3:30am on June 14th when we wake up to prepare for our flight. My parents graciously agree to pick us up at 3:45am so that we can arrive at the airport by 4:15am. At 6:15am we will take the first of three flights that will bring us to our ultimate destination of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe where …

Saw Victoria Falls today

A travel blog entry by alimac on Jun 09, 2014

Victoria Falls are about 5 miles long. We probably walked about 2 miles of it of which a third was just Mist. This is full season for the falls. There is so much mist it falls as rain creating a tropical rainforest. Will upload photos later today.

... occasional snort was quite eerie.

We had an excellent dinner. The staff couldn't do enough for us and had a cake ready for Alan whose birthday it was. We were the only guests at the lodge and everyone was so impressed with the place that there were a few suggestions that we cancel Victoria Falls and stay here instead! After dinner we walked down to the hide by the water and watched the elephants. The lodge keeps the waterhole topped up ...
