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.

The staff was friendly and check in was fast and easy. The zebras, antelopes and other animals on the property were fun to see. The food options were good with the buffet breakfast having many varieties.

Describing Avani in words is difficult. The immense beauty and wildlife around the resort is an experience one has to witness themselves.

Describing Avani in words is difficult. The immense beauty and wildlife around the resort is an experience one has to witness themselves. The rooms are very comfortable but the highlight was being able to see giraffes, zebras and playful monkeys from our balcony. Staff is very friendly and catered to our special requirements including a private family dinner! I must definitely make mention of Chef Anuj who went out of his way to make our stay memorable by catering to our special requests. Another highlight was the giraffe feeding activity available to do at Avani itself. It was an awesome experience. Great work by Avani and we're looking forward to being back soon! Read less

Full disclosure, we visited the Avani hotel for dinner while we were staying at the Royal Livingstone hotel next-door. We wanted a change of scenery and menu for dinner.

Full disclosure, we visited the Avani hotel for dinner while we were staying at the Royal Livingstone hotel next-door. We wanted a change of scenery and menu for dinner. We weren’t quite sure what to expect, but Trebby made the Avani exceed all of our expectations. She provided, hands down, the absolute best service we experienced while in Zambiq. The experience was so genuine, kind and efficient. We would definitely return to Avani for the experience with her alone. The food, drinks and service were all wonderful and while we love the Avani, we hope Livingstone steals Trebby away for our next visit so we see more of her! What a great asset to the brand!

The location is the absolute best; the animals roaming the property (zebra, deer, giraffes, monkeys) are extraordinary; the staff are helpful and go out of their way to make your stay perfect; the sunsets at the Royal Livingstone are epic...and you get free shuttles. Gift, at the front desk, went out of his way to give us the room we wanted; the dietary manager catered to our busy schedule and planned a special breakfast the day we left. Everyone was so friendly and helpful! We can't wait till we can return. Read less
