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.

My boyfriend and I stayed there for a week and we loved every single day out there. We were very impressed by the quality of customer service - every single member of staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Every guest there is treated like royalty. They remembered our names and food preferences. We were surrounded with attention, smiles, positivity, yet it wasn’t overwhelming or “too much” - it’s just right. Caroline, a waiter in a restaurant, made it her business to make sure we met the chef, or got a complimentary cocktail (we didn’t ask or hinted in any way about any of that). Chef Teddy (thanks to Caroline’s introduction) personally presented us with his vegetarian dishes, offered his recommendations (immaculate!), and his passion for food was so infectious that we kept coming back to his Buffet every dinner. Gym goers will be impressed by the new gym. Ernest, the personal trainer, trained us both during our stay. We’ve learned a lot from him, and kept ourselves in good shape (despite the large amount of delicious food from chef Teddy!). Members of ground team offered to take us to the (giraffe) feeding station. Everyone at Avani made us feel at home. It was genuine, effortless, and professional. Highly recommend! Read less

Great and relaxing resort. Highly recommend for families. Walking distance to the mighty Vic falls, plenty zebras, giraffes, impalas within the resort and kids enjoyed the sights. Quite relaxing environment for parents too. Overall stay also a great value considering the great facilities and service that comes with it.

Very nice room and friendly and helpful staff. Food in the restaurant left a bit to be desired though. The beef was more like buffalo and the manager had another knife sent to me because he could see how much I was struggling to cut my meat.
