Luxury safari holiday in Victoria Falls

There are some superb luxury lodge and boutique hotels in both Zambia and Zimbabwe which offer stylish rooms including spacious and lavish suites, a host of activities, elegant bars, gourmet fine dining with wine pairings, gyms, spas and swimming pools, 24-hour room service and butlers as well as beautiful grounds (and at some places, wild animals grazing on the lawns). It’s very easy to have a luxury trip to Victoria Falls: simply book your five-star hotel and they’ll organise everything for you, from airport transfers to guided tours of Victoria Falls, to all the exciting activities to fill your days. Take your pick from hotels with rolling green lawns situated on the banks of the Zambezi within walking distance from the falls, or, for more of a safari experience, stay in a lodge inside the Zambezi National Park or in a private concession on the Zimbabwean side, where you are immersed in the bush but only a short drive away from the waterfalls.

Sussi and Chuma Lodge,  Sanctuary Retreat, Zambia

Highlights of a luxury trip to Victoria Falls include watching wildlife graze on the hotel lawns from your balcony or terrace, tucking into an indulgent spread for High Tea each afternoon with a view of the spray of Victoria Falls in the distance, candlelit private dinners at a table set up for you in the garden, a helicopter flight over the falls, sunset cruises on the Zambezi River with cocktails and snacks, walking safaris and private guided game drives in the Zambezi National Park, getting spa treatments a few steps away from the river, a gourmet five-course dinner with wines onboard an old steam train, and day trips to the magnificent elephant-teeming Chobe National Park in Botswana and Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.

Sanctuary Chiefs Camp

If you’re planning on visiting other destinations in Zimbabwe or Zambia after your stay in Victoria Falls, the most luxurious way to travel is by private charter plane.
