Luxury Family Holidays

With such stunning natural surroundings, The Victoria Falls Hotel is sure to be an exciting stay for all ages. The range of accommodation includes family friendly connected rooms, and the abundance of adventure activities mean that all the family can experience the best of Zimbabwe. From thrilling adventures perfect for energy-filled teens such as white-water rafting and jet-boat safaris, to the children's programme that includes a goody bag with puzzles and sweets, or the inspiring sights that will captivate everyone such as the Walking With Lions tour or the vibrant arts & crafts market. Babysitting services are also available.


Golf enthusiasts can tee-off at The Victoria Falls' sister hotel, Elephant Hills Inter-Continental, at its eighteen-hole Championship golf course. Designed by Gary Player and striking in every way, it is unlikely he designed the course with animal encounters in mind; animals do, however, occasionally meander across the course - everything from antelope to warthogs and elephants - make for an interesting, if not slightly unusual, golfing obstacle.

Spa Breaks

The spa offers massages and there is also a hairdresser available.

In Addition

The private footpath to Victoria Falls only takes ten minutes and is accessible directly from the hotel. The falls, which border both Zimbabwe and Zambia, are a compelling reminder of nature's overwhelming beauty and power. Billows of vaporised smoke travel upwards, caused by the sheer ferocity of the plummeting water. With 550,000 cubic metres spilling over the edge every minute, the spray reaches heights of four-hundred metres, meaning waterproofs and sensible shoes are highly advised. Between November and March you are likely to find higher volumes of water and dramatic scenery, albeit much of it obscured by spray. During the dry season (April to October), the falls are a little less overwhelming and not so much a deluge, but rather a light flow of water. However, expect clearer views and good rainbows.
