A delightfully stylish boutique hotel, just minutes from Victoria Falls
Natural world | Safari | Wildlife
Located just 15 minutes from Victoria Falls, this boutique hotel offers superb style, comfort and service on the doorstep of one of Africa’s most iconic natural wonders. And, with its tree-shaded gardens and pool, excellent dining options and in-room spa treatments, it’s a wonderfully relaxing base for days of outdoor adventure and wildlife viewing in the Zimbabwean bush. What's more, with a waterhole on the hotel's perimeter, you'll be able to watch zebras, elephants and buffalos.
Each of the hotel’s 16 suites is nestled amid the greenery, all private and elegantly appointed. Terraces provide a connection with the surrounding nature, and a wonderful spot for a glass of wine as the sun sets, while inside, canopied king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms, complete with slipper baths and walk-in showers, are all delightfully luxurious. Each suite also comes with a mini-bar, a MORE coffee station and a lounge area with TV and a curated selection of books.
The hotel’s 1871 Restaurant showcases fresh, seasonal produce across menus that combine traditional European and African-fusion cooking to perfection; expect classic dishes with an exotic twist. There’s also a choice of indoor and al fresco settings in which to dine or, for something really special, the option of a private dining experience in a secluded corner of the gardens, complete with soft lantern lighting and the services of a personal butler. And, with a cellar on site favouring premium South African varietals, all dishes can be paired with a perfectly matched wine. If you fancy something a little more relaxed, head to the pool for lighter bites served alongside a range of beers and cooling cocktails. Then there's the afternoon tea – a traditional treat served alongside champagnes and lemon-gin cocktails.
But, it’s not all about dining and relaxation. The hotel is also perfectly placed for adventures into the surrounding bush. Perhaps head out on safari along the banks of the Zambezi, take a boat tour to see wildlife from the water, or take in Victoria Falls from above with a helicopter flight. Speak to our specialists about the available options. And, if you’re travelling with the family and fancy some down time, the Mack and Madi’s kid’s club offers interactive entertainment for children of all ages.
