    For hotel of this size the restaurant for most nights was the pool bar which had a limited menu and was outside seating in the rainy season. Also some nights there was local drumming entertainment in the pool bar which was very load and went on far to long.

    A little bit of Africa right outside your room

    Amazing hotel right in the center of a national park with direct access to the falls. If you want to experience a little bit of Africa right outside your hotel room, you must stay here. Where on earth could you stay. In a 1st class hotel that has giraffe, zebras, monkey & springboks strolling around. 5 minutes walk from the complex & you are in the Zambia side of the falls. Your hotel stay includes admission to this side of the falls, as many times as you want to visit. The Zimbabwe side is about a 30 minute walk....not the greatest with lots of trucks & local people trying to sell something & yo.u have to transit boarder & passport check. The service at the hotel is 1st rate, everybody is so nice. Breakfast is god with lots of the usual choices, they also have a small section for glutton free. Dinner at the hotel was good also. You can book tours in the lobby & the staff is knowledgeable.

    Loved the zebras, impala and giraffes walking around, the swimming pool and overall grounds and ambience in general. Friendly, helpful staff, easy access to the falls and to the sister Livingstone Hotel. Easy to book trips via the hotel.

    Decent hotel in a great location. Property was fairly well kept. Some staff was very helpful and pleasant, some Not as much, it might just be the culture. Dinner and show at the Bowma was awesome, the dancers unbelievably fun. I would recommend this hotel but one on the Zimbabwe side may be a bit more convenient depending on the activities you are planning.
