    Great place to view wild animals and relax

    We stayed at this hotel 27 years ago and it is a pity to see it past it's former glory. The new owners seem to be making an effort to upgrade the rooms but it will take some time before it will be back to an international standard hotel. The staff are still amazingly friendly and the restaurant serves a good breakfast and other meals. The best thing about the Safari Lodge are the waterholes which attract herds of elephants, buffalo and other animals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Great spot, very peaceful surroundings

    Quiet, peaceful surroundings, unless you have school children on a school field trip arrive to disturb the serenity ! Game drives are arranged on the premises & the watering hole is great for animal watching

    Nice Hotel but no much to do

    The hotel was nice enough, however getting there is a challenge as there are no shuttles from Victoria Falls nor is there a bus that will take you to the hotel. It is a 2 -3 hour trip to the hotel and I had to hitch a ride with a local that happened to be going to the town of Hwange and paid a premium to him so that he would take me to the hotel which was an hour from the town . Once there, the scenery is peaceful and there is a watering hole that attracts wildlife. The staff are friendly and the game drives are good but there is not much more to do there. I do not recommend a stay longer that 3 days. If you are looking to experience wider range of wildlife as well as other activities and local sites I recommend you stay at Victoria Falls.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    From start to finish this trip was outstanding! I emailed the lodge months in advance to arrange multiple trips and the staff were always eager to make it the best stay. Over email they told me they will arrange the trips I want to do with the days Im staying. So sweet!! I also requested an anniversary dinner to be set up, they told me to leave it with them. Coming up to the dinner I was nervous because no one had said anything about it! Well I was just as surprised as my partner! The effort that went into this dinner was just breathtaking. The manager arranged our table to be secluded at the pool with loads of candles surrounding, also right beside the fence which meant the elephants were so close while eating our dinner! AMAZING. Not only was the set up of our dinner breathtaking as it was, the waiter we had specifically for our table was brilliant as well! I can actually say he was the best waiter I have seen throughout Victoria Falls and Hwange! so well done. AND to top it all off, the lodge gave us a bottle of champagne on the house! No words, seriously. The really done a fantastic job!! The lodge also provide game drives into Hwange national park so you can see the BIG 5! We went on a game drive throughout the day and thought it was great. The guide stops off and gives you drinks and snacks so you don't have to bring your own. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous as well with an amazing view overlooking a waterhole so you can see a rangeof animals coming to drink

    The lodge is in need of a touch up. The toilet kept running, the bath needed replacing and the kettle had a white ring around it on the inside. On the flipside the air con was fsntastic and the bed super comfy.
