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 travelled far and long to experience the famous Victoria Falls in Zambia which was breathtaking and gorgeous and well worth the travels.

We travelled far and long to experience the famous Victoria Falls in Zambia which was breathtaking and gorgeous and well worth the travels. Unfortunately cannot say the same about our 1 night stay at Avani. Not sure what was the explanation for this less than 24 hrs. stay there but the front desk staff came across as non professional, not friendly or Cooperative. They could clearly see that we were barely there for less than 24 hrs.. And were trying to get information and maximize our time there in visiting the falls, trying to find out about the Zambia/Zimbabwe border but they were very flippant in their response.. Even staff on the premises were giving us different info when we asked Q's and information. Ironically the sister property The Royal Livingstone were much more professional and friendly/Helpful. We were booked for Dinner there which was nice but they were short staffed and we had long wait and Food items were also not prepared to our satisfaction for a 5 star hotel. The location for Avani is perfect access to Victoria falls and the breakfast Spread was impressive but it is highly unlikely that we would recommend the hotel to our family and friends if they want friendly service.

We arrived and were immediately greeted by some zebras hanging out by the pool, which was quite the welcome. Our rooms were clean and the beds were the most comfortable I think I've ever slept on.

We arrived and were immediately greeted by some zebras hanging out by the pool, which was quite the welcome. Our rooms were clean and the beds were the most comfortable I think I've ever slept on. Breakfasts were excellent, with a full buffet of juices, eggs, pastries, and pancakes. For dinner, we ate at Avani one night and the next went to the sister hotel - it was nice that we had the option to switch things up. We stayed at Avani in order to see Victoria Falls, but we also enjoyed wandering around the grounds of the hotel, where we saw the aforementioned zebras as well as monkeys, giraffes, and some sort of antelope.
