Two-night stay here. Comfortable, quiet location right on the river— stunning. Service was outstanding. Highly recommend the sunset river cruise. Beautiful and informative and great for bird and sunset viewing. Easy half-day included tour to the Falls.

I think VFalls entrance is US$50 for US citizens. if you are staying at VF River lodge, your national park fees are included. if you want to go to Zambia you will need a visa.
