AVANI Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, Zambia

The hotel

Those tumbling waters of the Zambezi River over the Victoria Falls are so close you will hear the roar and see the cascades of billowing mist. The AVANI Victoria Falls Resort has the feel of a centuries-old walled city, reflecting the richness and diversity of lands heritage, with earth-coloured buildings featuring turrets and chimneys. Set out for a day of adventure with a helicopter trip over the mighty Victoria Falls or head to the nearby Entertainment Centre for quick and easy booking for adventure activities, sundowner cruises, game-drives, bird watching and cycling safaris.

We went Easter weekend 2021. I had much higher expectations based on the website and the price. The rooms are very small for the price. The buffet dinner is expensive and average. Great for meat-eaters. Not so great for vegetarians. Nice dessert bar. The grounds are lovely. Great pool. You can walk to the Falls from the hotel, which is really very nice an you can hear the Falls at night from your room. Next time, we will stay at a more moderately priced hotel as I do not believe the Avani is actually worth the price. Read less

A stunning resort. You would not say you are in Zambia with the Mexican vibe going on. The staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home. You are so close to the falls that you can hear them from your room. Beautiful sites of Giraffe, Zebra and more walking around the resort. I would definitely recommend!
