The award-winning Victoria Falls Safari Lodge nestles in bushland atop a plateau, just 4 kilometres from the majestic Victoria Falls. Its location affords its guests panoramic vistas of the Zambezi National Park as well as views of a private waterhole that is a magnet for all manner of game, from buffalo and elephant to lion and leopard. Its 72 contemporary guestrooms are bright and airy, with large sliding doors leading out onto a private balcony.

Guests at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge and its more exclusive sister property Safari Club (which shares the grounds) enjoy access to a huge thatched, multi-storey main area at the heart of the lodge containing a restaurant, a character-filled bar, a souvenir shop, elevated viewing deck and gorgeous swimming pool set amid lush landscaping.

Things to do in the local area include game drives in a neighbouring national park, sunset river cruises, whitewater rafting, a scenic helicopter or microlight aircraft flight over the magnificent Victoria Falls or lunch on historic Livingstone Island. For something different, consider a safari with the Victoria Falls Anti Poaching Unit (VFAPU), who provide an eye-opening look into local wildlife conservation efforts.

Zimbabwe Overview

What is the best thing to do in Zimbabwe?
Zimbabwe offers plenty of fabulous safari experiences and the two major national parks – Hwange and Mana Pools – are top of the list when visiting the country. For the more adventurous, Zimbabwe is one of the best countries across Africa for walking and canoeing safaris, whilst the magnificent Victoria Falls is a must-visit.

What is the climate like in Zimbabwe?
Overall the country has a pleasant climate but temperatures vary with elevation. The highveld has a moderate climate (up to 29°C in summer) though hotter in the Zambezi Valley and around the Victoria Falls where temperatures can reach 40°C. The dry season is from May-October when almost no rain falls and the days are warm and sunny. Nights can be very cold with sub-zero temperatures from June-August. October is the hottest month with days in the mid to high 30°s. Rain falls regularly in the summer (November-March/April) turning the bush lush and green.

How do I get to Zimbabwe?
The easiest way into the country is from the South African hub of Johannesburg. Multiple major airlines fly into the city including British Airways, Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways, Delta Airlines, Qantas, and of course South African Airways. From Johannesburg there are regular flights to Victoria Falls, the start and end point for many safaris. Alternatively, for an Edwardian-style, luxury rail experience, journey by Rovos Rail from Pretoria in South Africa to Victoria Falls.

What can I combine Zimbabwe with?
Zimbabwe is easily combinable with neighbouring countries including Botswana, Zambia and South Africa – all of which provide a different safari experience. Another popular combination with a Zimbabwean safari is a visit to Uganda or Rwanda to see the mountain gorillas.
