A very good hotel with giraffes, zebras etc wandering in the grounds. The hotel was about 5 mins walk from the Falls and entry to the Fall is free with your room key. The room was perfectly good with a view over the gardens, the pool and surrounds were relaxed and very pleasant. I found some of the 'live music'...

The place was amazing with loads of wildlife in the resort such as monkeys, antelope, giraffe, zebras and birds. Great choice of activities and within walking distance from the top of the falls. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.

The popular Zambezi Sun has been rebranded after the sale to the Avani chain. The facility has been refurbished and given a new lease of life. The furnishings are morgen with the good amenities like LED large flat screen TV's. The service remains the great hospitality expected at one of the seven wonders of the world.

Set on huge grounds with giraffes, zebra and Impala wondering around, it's five mins walk from the falls, has comfortable standard rooms, a good breakfast spread, a decent and reasonably priced...

They tell me it is 3 star but I do not believe it. I left with exactly nothing to complain about. The people are their greatest asset, the grounds are amazing, and nearby shopping great. Food, is good too with a number of options.
