Our 2-night stay at the “Island Lodge” wasn’t NEARLY long enough—we wanted to LIVE here! The staff … Obey, Mathias, Blessing, Bill and others … were exceptionally helpful, friendly and welcoming. And the cabins on stilts over the Zambezi with plunge pools and indoor-outdoor living are the most astonishing of any camp I’ve ever seen! Best of all are the elevated walkways allowing guests to view elephants and hippos grazing below. And the meals are divine, served with care and class.

We have just experienced the most incredible family holiday at Island Lodge, Vic Falls River Lodge. 4 amazing nights in what has to be the most wonderful setting on the Zambezi. The staff and service are exceptional. The rooms are magnificent. The river cruise experience every day is breath taking. I’m fortunate to do a lot of African bush safaris every year and this has to be ranked up there as one of the best ever. Just trying to workout when I can get back here.

At end of a 3 country safari tour of Africa we found ourselves lucky enough to wrap up our trip with a 4 night stay at the Victoria Falls River Lodge in a treehouse suite. It was the perfect conclusion to a rigorous travel schedule. We were able to completely relax and enjoy a slower pace, watching the river go by our sumptuously appointed suite, cruising on the river and touring the magnificent Victoria Falls. Everything from accommodations to service, spa and dining was top notch. We're spoiled now for life!

I did discuss this during our visit with the receptionist Senzi. There was a team of consultants walking up and down with their phones on speaker mode and voices at unacceptable level "doing business" at the expense of the serenity of this lovely place. Maybe signage and management should ask people to do their "business" elsewhere and not in the lounge and entertainment areas- there is enough space and or your room
