A memorable holiday at a wonderful hotel with the most friendly and courteous staff! We highly recommend this hotel at Vic falls with wildlife that comes very close to the hotel. Highly recommend the early morning elephant ride, the day trip to chobe and the flight of angels around Vic falls. They even made special efforts to make our birthday...

S&L is the only place to stay in Victoria Falls! Food, service and rooms were outstanding. Moline was warm, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and served with high style. The guides were knowledgable and experienced.

We are a mature couple who took 6 friends for an "African Experience". We loved the setting, the beautifully preserved buildings with immaculate furniture took us back in time. The gardens were amazing. Sitting on the veranda overlooking the waterhole during the day was always pleasant and full of surprises. The staff and food was always great.

We did a day safari from the Victoria Falls hotel. Although it was 90$-it was brilliant. We had done some great safaris in Chobe and the Okavango but hadn't seen rhino. This is a lovely park with plenty of game and only a couple of other trucks-which we hardly saw. It feels very natural but we were able to see...

Everything was excellent. From the first step into the front door. Staff friendly and helpful. Food good, room good, view good, just everything. I loved the game drive with BBQ outside. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnish. The wine cellar has an excellent choice. Breakfast you sit outside and watch the game coming to the waterhole.
