Why we Love These Victoria Falls Hotels.
Victoria Falls is a must-visit destination. At the start or end of a safari, or on its own, there is so much to see and do in Victoria Falls. Have a look at our 48 Hours in Victoria Falls article for some idea of the fun you can enjoy. We have listed our top 10 Victoria Falls Hotels, and split them into their respective countries. There are some amazing properties on both sides to suit all travellers. The Zambian side of Victoria Falls tends to have more lodge-style hotels, with all-inclusive rates and activities that include wildlife viewing and more.
