Sterling, Massachusetts
Reviewed 25 April 2016

Close proximity to the Falls, full access to the Royal Livingstone, a River Safari were our favorite parts The breakfast buffet is very nice but otherwise the food options are somewhat limited. They only offer an expensive buffet in the main dinning room at night.

Friendly staff, good food, and excellent location, 3 minutes walk from the falls. Perfect base for all the activities in the area. The hotel is nicely decorated, though the rooms need some refurbishment. Great choice for families with kids.

The hotel is a great place to relax and excursions are available but expensive. We enjoyed zebras grazing outside our bedroom and keeping an eye on monkeys trying to steal food at breakfast. The food is good but the poolside menu needs some more variety. What marks out the Avani is its staff. They look after your every need and...

Pretty pricey for us but we had limited time so we wanted to be close to the falls. Extremely close to the fall (Zambia side) and entry is free from within the hotel. This is a big plus if you don't have much time! We found the check-in staff to be very helpful (in fact they helped to promptly escort...

We loved our stay here. The rooms were nice, the service good, and the location can't be beat. Its a couple minute walk to the falls and they provide you with ponchos. The breakfast buffet was good but we weren't very impressed with the poolside café. It was fun to have zebra, baboons, and giraffe outside your window or 15...

As our final destination after 2 weeks exploring and doing game drives we really enjoyed the Avani Hotel which has an amazing location ( its back door leads onto the Victoria Falls).
