Stunning venue to watch the animals come down to the water hole. Lovely to see the elephants come down to drink along with the buffalo. The sunset was really something to see. Thanks to the owners Mike and Alex from Bayete Lodge for taking us there. And Bayate Lodge is a lodge to go and stay at.

Stopped in to have sun downers before going to the Boma for dinner. Good service, nice bar snacks and a fantastic view. Given the abundance of water around there was no need for game to frequent the water hole but the distant storm and spectacular view still mated it an enjoyable outing.

My suite room was pretty cool with an amazing view of the water hole - but the hotel service was terrible. Desk staff and porters were great but beverage and food service was really bad. Make sure you...

Safari lodge is a cost pad to enjoy the jungle and the beasts. While planning for a short business trip too, the place has got option to have your eyesful of wilderness. Longer the stay, lodge grows on you with the surroundings to stay there forever. Great food and service tops it all.

Located about 4 kilometres from Victoria Falls, the Safari Lodge was an hotel with a difference. Built high up, overlooking a watering hole and surrounded by rain forest it's thatched roof and wooden floors and walls it seemed to blend into its surroundings. The rooms were nicely appointed with a huge bed and mosquito netting. A lovely bathroom, tea and...

We had an amazing stay Safari Lodge for a friend's 40th. There were 38 in our party from Harare and Johannesburg, and the staff at the hotel handled perfectly. From foot massages around the pool, to incredible drinks and food service, our every wish was met and fulfilled. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel highly...

Ideally located on a hillside to offer spectacular views of the Zambezi escarpment, vulture feeding spectacle and comfortable accommodation coupled with excellent service from the eager and helpful staff! Perfect ambience for a restful and stress free vacation!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Voted the best Safari Lodge in Zimbabwe for 18 years running, the world-famous Victoria Falls Safari Lodge offers easy access to the iconic Victoria Falls, coupled with a wildlife experience that is truly unrivalled. Now in its 20th year of welcoming guests, the Lodge is built on a plateau overlooking the Zambezi National Park with endless unspoilt views to the horizon, just four kilometers from the Falls. This is the only sunset facing hotel in Victoria Falls, and the newly-renovated rooms and balconies are built up above a central waterhole which attracts herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe, zebra, as well as night-time predators, such as lion and leopard. Our warm and personable staff are our greatest pride. Past guests frequently comment on our team's sublime hospitality and seamless delivery. The main areas of the lodge, such as the MaKuwa-Kuwa restaurant and the homely Buffalo Bar, are rich in ambience and also overlook the central waterhole, where drinks and dinners are often shared with wildlife meandering down to the water each day to quench their thirst. ... more   less
