The location of the Avani Resort is a highlight - right next to the Victoria Falls - and seeing wildlife wandering round the hotel grounds became the norm (zebras and impalas). I have to say that the staff were exceptional, and the facilities and standard of the rooms was excellent. The only let down was the restaurant, particularly the buffet,...

From check-in to check-out I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Avani. After some initial confusion- we had booked when it was still the Zambezi Sun, I thought we were being taken to the wrong hotel, but alas it was just a name/ownership change and it was in fact the property I had booked. Staff went out of their way...

It is a great place for a family trip. My 4 year old nephew had a blast during our stay here. As you enter the hotel, you can see giraffes, zebras, and impalas grazing in the front lawn or around the hotel. Rooms are standard, but the bathroom is large with both shower booth and tub. Breakfast is great, and...

We spent three nights at the newly re-branded Avani Victoria Falls as part of our honeymoon. The hotel has sort of a Moroccan-theme going on, which was particularly nice at night when the hotel's pool and dining areas were all lit-up. Our room was nice, if a bit small, and the hotel's location -- on the grounds of the Zambia...

Although we only stayed for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was a decent size with plenty of space for 2 people. The food and drink (which wasn't included in our package) was both reasonably priced with very large portions (I'd thoroughly recommend the chicken tikka pizza fresh from the clay oven!) The...
