The Victoria Falls Hotel, dating back to 1904, is the real deal, a genuine luxury hotel that happens to have a glorious view of the most breath-taking waterfall in the world. Plus, the hotel offers superb service and old-fashioned Colonial architecture coupled with abundant African touches.

Victoria Falls existed long before David Livingstone spotted the misty, spraying waterfall from his dugout canoe in November 1855, subsequently naming them Victoria Falls in honor of the British Queen. Prior to Livingstone, the locals knew this wonder of the world as Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning, “Smoke that Thunders”.
