Travellers' Choice
The Victoria Falls Waterfront is situated on the Northern banks of the Zambezi River, approximately 4 km's upstream from The Victoria Falls and just opposite Siloka (Long) Island.This establishment is designed to attract the younger more adventurous traveller (and of course the young at heart!) who wish to experience the Great Zambezi River, the wonder of the Victoria Falls and its stunning wildlife surrounds, without great expense. It is designed to cater for all travellers, from camping to basic, good quality chalet accommodation. The Waterfront has some lovely riverside chalets with balconies and stunning views. We also have Adventure Village Tents which are permanent tents with 2 x single beds and a campsite - so something to suit everyone. The lodge has fantastic amenities including 2 x swimming pools, a popular bar, restaurant with Peppino's by the river's pizza's (delicious!). There is also an internet cafe, wifi, small souvenir shop and a large activity centre who will help with all activities in the area.

Located direct on the river the place gives you a right impression about the nature life. A hippo and a little crocodile are living in that area, Interesting experience. A lot of green around gives you a feeling to be in the jungle or rain forest. A very friendly staff let you a feel like in a family. They're helping where ever it's possible. And they give always interesting recommendations. The kitchen is okay, the breakfast is also fine. WiFi is available and fast. The rooms are simple and clean, no complains. It's a quiet and peaceful place - during the week. The weekend might be different.

Dear Frank, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us at Victoria Falls Waterfront, we are glad to hear that you found our staff members friendly and helpful, we are driven and passionate about providing our clients with an excellent customer service and ensuring they have the most enjoyable stay with us. We are very fortunate to be located within the Mosi-oa Tunya National Park and on the banks of the Upper Zambezi River, with beautiful gardens and an array of wildlife on our door steps, in addition to Hippo's and Croc's we also have Vervet Monkeys, Baboons and lots of bird life. The Elephants have returned early this year and have already been spotted close by, we will soon be able to watch them crossing the river most days. Our accommodation options include Executive, River Facing, Garden and Family Chalets, Adventure Village Rooms, Adventure Village Tents and a beautiful campsite to cater for all needs. Our restaurant is generally quiet and peaceful, weekends do get a little busy at times and our Friday Night Happy Hour at the bar can sometimes get a little festive. Our deck is big enough for clients to have the atmosphere they would like and the view can't be beaten for watching the sunset over the Zambezi. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we hope to welcome you again in the future!

Dear R600BLpaul, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Victoria Falls Waterfront. We are delighted to hear that the staff looked after you, we are fortunate to have a great team who are passionate about providing an excellent service and ensuring each of our clients have the type of stay that they wanted when booking their trip to Livingstone. Visiting Victoria Falls is always a special experience, however you and your family really did pick a great time to visit, the Zambezi River is full, the falls are magnificent, the spray of the Mosi-oa Tunya Victoria Falls only 4kms away as the crow flies from our restaurant deck is very prominent in the sky line. Although the rains are coming to an end, everything is still very green and our famous views of the sun setting across the river are again a daily evening treat, accompanied by an ice cold Mosi Lager or Gin & Tonic to sip on while munching on a Peppinos Pizza on the River to enhance the experience is certainly a great way to end your day. We hope to welcome you next time you visit Livingstone.

Was part of a group on a business visit to Livingstone ... they do a good job of accommodating meals for large (+/- 8 people) groups. The rooms were well kept, the staff pleasant and the personality of the place was relaxed.

Dear Dan, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Victoria Falls Waterfront, we are pleased to hear that you had a comfortable and relaxed stay with us. We are privileged to be located on the banks of the Upper Zambezi River and we are attracting more small groups who get to have a lodge experience whilst on business trips. Our river side restaurant deck and our on site cruise boats (MV Makumbi & MV Mambushi) are also popular for business meetings. The Zambezi is rising quickly now and the spray from the Mosi-oa-Tunya Victoria Falls only 4km away as the crow flies is very prominent in the skyline from our restaurant deck. The rains are coming to an end and we look forward to our guaranteed views of sun setting across the Zambezi River on a daily basis again. Thank you for staying with us during your time in Livingstone and we look forward to hosting you again in the future.

We're fortunate to live in a country that values and enjoys outdoor time so much already, so that there are many places we can still visit with only slight changes to their normal protocols and still feel as safe as possible. Livingstone Waterfront is one of those places. We recently visited as a family of seven. We had two chalet rooms, and took breakfast and dinner at the lodge. We also took a river cruise on a fully open sided boat. Staff were masked at all times that I noticed. The food was good, although a little slow - definitely plan on a leisurely meal at night. A particular highlight was the wood fired pizza, possibly the best pizza I've had during our two years in Zambia. Wifi extended to the rooms, which is unusual in my lodge experience here. As is common with lodges that offer river tours or game drives, be prepared to pay park fees separately when you checkout.

Dear Quiddity42, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Victoria Falls Waterfront, we are delighted to hear you enjoyed and felt safe during your stay with us, we do take the health of our clients and staff very seriously especially during these difficult times and we have implemented all the recommended protocols. We are fortunate to have wide open spaces, beautiful gardens, outside dining, open sided Sunset Cruise river boats MV Makumbi and Mambushi as well as being located on the banks of the Upper Zambezi River. Wi-Fi has become such an important part of our lives in recent years, we have boosters around the property to ensure clients staying in our Exec, River Facing, Family, Garden Chalets and Adventure Village rooms all have free access in their rooms as well as at the main bar and restaurant area. Peppinos Pizza on the River certainly do make fantastic Wood Fired Pizzas, they are popular with tourists and locals alike, enhanced with a refreshing Gin & Tonic or an ice cold Mosi Lager while watching the sun setting over the Zambezi River. We apologise for any delays you experienced in the restaurant, this isn't the normal service we provide and will investigate what happened during your stay. Victoria Falls Waterfront is the home of Safari-par-excellence renowned activity provider since 1994 where you can book all activities within the area. Safari Par Excellence activity prices exclude park fees. Clients pay park fees directly to National Heritage or at the Department of National Parks and Wildlife gate on entry, for River Cruises our activities office receive payment either at time of booking or on confirming your trip if pre-paid. There shouldn't be any instance where park fees are charged at checkout and we are sorry for any confusion or miscommunication in your case. Thank you for staying with whilst visiting Livingstone and the Mighty Victoria Falls, we hope to host you and your family in the future!

Waterfront is as amazing as the sunsets you'll see while eating dinner or having drinks from the restaurant deck. The rooms were great, the beds are so comfortable, and it was always so clean. I loved getting back to my room after a long day of adventure. The staff are all so incredibly kind and helpful. The food was delicious and the drinks were great. I've stayed at a couple different places in Livingstone and I can guarantee that I'll only stay at Waterfront in the future.
