    The Lodge is within walking distance of the Victoria Falls. We could see the mist and hear the sound of the falls from our balcony. We could have our meals outside or inside as we wanted. The music during our evening meal was really special.

    Hi, The walk to the falls entrance from the hotel is anywhere between 10-15min walk. I would recommend that we organise a taxi or transportation to the falls though.

    Hi. the hotel is a 5 min walk from the Victoria Falls entrance. the entrance fee is $30pp per entry. The Zimbabwe side of the falls has most of the viewing especially during the dry season (May to November).
