The historic Victoria Falls Hotel overlooks the Victoria Falls Bridge and the gorges below. Built in 1904, The Victoria Falls Hotel was the very first hotel to be built in Victoria Falls. The hotel exhudes original colonial Edwardian charm but recent refurbishments offer guests the modern comforts one would expect from a luxury hotel. Even if you don’t stay at this hotel, a visit is a must on everyone’s itinerary.
