I love this place. Only a walking distance to Victoria falls. You see beautiful Zebras strolling across the lawns daily. Monkeys too. Service was excellently and rooms were very comfortable. Be sure to ask for a king size bed though unless you prefer otherwise.i changed.

After a long trip through Southern Africa we chose Avani to wind down before our return home. It was a good choice. Professional and attentive staff. Singing by costumed dancers on arrival. The room whilst not large was comfortable and well cooled by A/C. The bathroom had a shower and a separate bath. Temperature control in the shower was a bit fickle. Liked being able to drink the purified tap water!! Room service food was good and not overpriced. Wifi was fast. The included buffet breakfast was excellent. The grounds are well maintained with roaming impala and zebra. Walking distance to the Falls with free entry appreciated. I liked Avani and would happily stay again.

the stay was very relaxing but the buffet meals were not well done. I enjoyed the ambience of the hotel and also the location in the park. The staff were excellent in my case. Very friendly and helpful. The souveniour shops

Firstly the good points;
Location - perfect for visiting the falls.
Grounds and pool - nice big pool and superb grounds, zebra, impala, and giraffe around plus plenty of birds. Feeding of the zebra and giraffe was a lovely and unexpected experience.
Rooms - clean and well equipped, and with a decent view.
Bad points ;
Room was somewhat small and had 2 x double beds cramped in. Would have been better for couples to have a single large bed to free up some room ?
Service - generally poor, especially in the open air restaurant. Had to go to the bar to order drinks as that's where the waiting staff hung around, even had one chasing me to sign the bill 30 minutes after I had left (and had to order my drink at the bar anyway). Hardly alert ....
Had a bit of wildlife in the room (ants) and the open air restaurant was a mosquito magnet, though I suppose this is to be expected.
Reasonable buffet breakfast but again poor service, would have been better to let people pour their own coffee & orange juice than to wait around for staff to do it.
Would certainly go back though for the location and the grounds.
