The Views of Victoria Falls Hotel

I never equated Africa with luxury. I dreamed of rugged safari drives to search for the Big 5,  riverboat journeys through Namibia on the Chobe, and loads of adventure. And yes, I found all that, but I also discovered luxury. Much Luxury.

From the South African Winelands, the “foodie” and cosmopolitan city Cape Town, to stylish Blue Train Travel,  yes, so much luxury.

One such place in Zimbabwe, an “old world” oasis on the edge one of Mother Nature’s most majestic feats was the Victoria Falls Hotel. The views from the hike of the falls were nothing short of magical and truly breath-taking, but the views at the hotels were certainly worthy of mention in any letter home.

I spent three magical days and nights here. Enjoy.

Stay luxurious, Craig

    Aaah the Victoria Falls hotel! Love the afternoon tea and roaming around the building. If feels like Dr Livingstone might be around the corner, in that arm chair over there! And the views from the back garden? Fantastic.

    Love the place Craig, thanks for sharing!

      I loved the place too. A sense of Victorian era magic makes spending a few days there rather enjoyable indeed. Glad you enjoyed the post.
