This was our first stop on a tour of the Falls, Chobe and Okavango, and it was a superb way to start the holiday. We and the teenage kids all loved the rooms with the open walls and bath, the lodge with its infinity pool, and the amazingly friendly and helpful staff and manager. The food was superb, and we...

This is the most different place I have stayed in. No wall on the front my lodge (Honeymoon) and so no key for the door. I enjoyed the interaction with the widlife, but if you are phohobic about insects, spiders and lizards sharing your space go for a closed lodge. No set meal times; you eat and drink when you...

Friend PROMISED this would be our favorite lodge and a great end to our Botswana/ Namibia stay. Skeptical because we ardently avoid touristy, themed, embarrassingly over-the-top hotels and lodges. Have had our fill over the years. But he was right. Although we unhappily dragged ourselves in to the Stanley after a tremendous 2 week ground tent camping experience, we immediately...

This lodge is amazing! We had been on a hetic schedule to Cape town and Johannesburg and wanted to visit the Falls but relax at the same time, Stanlet Safi Lodge helped us to acheive this. The attention to details, fine dining, personalised service was worth every penny spent. We stayed in the Honeymoon lodge and really stretched our budget...

With its friendly staff and warm welcome this lovely African-themed lodge offers calm and comfort to the traveller. The spray from the Victoria Falls can be seen from each cottage's deck, bush surrounds you and it is an easy drive to see the Falls or take a Sunset Cruise on the Zambesi. We were made to feel totally at ease...

The Stanley was a diamond in the rough! About a 10-15 min drive to Victoria Falls, this is the perfect place for a romantic get-a-way or a high class experience. Originally, I thought I wanted to be closer to the falls but when I got to the hotel – it was an amazing view and I could see the mist...

Stanley lodge surpassed our expectations without question. The two open suites we had booked may have been the two nicest rooms we have ever stayed in and the food was excellent. What we found to be outstanding was the service, especially Samson. From our arrival Samson was there for us for everything. He served us breakfast, lunch and dinner, choose...

The Stanley Safari Lodge has the most courteous, attentive and friendly staff who are also highly informative about the place. The room was simple, clean and basic. The decorations were made will local artifacts and therefore the rooms bore an African touch. The room service was quick and very reliable. You get a good view of some natural sceneries from...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
From every room at Stanley Safari Lodge, you can see the distant views of the spray of the Victoria Falls. Set on a hill overlooking unspoiled bush, only 3 km birds view from the river and the Victoria Falls, Stanley is a perfect base from which to explore the delights of the area – from river rafting and bungee jumping to sunset cruises, elephant back rides or walking with lions. Quiet and intimate, Stanley Safari Lodge will tailor your stay to suit you.The opensided Main House has been designed with space and views in mind. Enjoy sundowners in the African style lounge, French cuisine with an African twist in the dining room or spend some quiet time in the library or upper deck discovering the secrets of Africa. This half open house has a truly African feel, while the colonial closed suites with private plunge pool evoke the elegant era of Stanley and Livingstone. However, at Stanley Safari Lodge most rooms are half open, which enables you to absorb the sights and sounds of the African bush fully. ... more   less

“Honeymoon and Family suites, with open views add to the feeling of exploration and being part of the African bush. There is heating and effective mosquito protection so you don't have to suffer the downsides. Glamping with extra romance and glamour.”
