Over Ursula's Camp
Kleinschalig, met slechts 4 chalets, en intiem: Welkom bij Ursula's Camp! De Victoria-waterval is natuurlijk fantastisch maar daardoor zijn er ook veel andere toeristen die, net als u, dit fenomeen komen bekijken. Wilt u vervolgens wel lekker tot rust kunnen komen en de massa ontlopen? Dan kruipt u gewoon weg in dit camp. Het camp is sfeervol en heeft een heerlijk (klein) zwembad, omzoomd met gras en ligbedden. Bovendien ligt dit camp in het privé-wildreservaat Stanley & Livingstone, dus u kunt hier tevens op safari!

De Victoria Falls zijn waarschijnlijk uw hoofddoel voor een vakantie Zimbabwe. Deze watervallen zijn een van de grootste watervallen van de wereld en heel indrukwekkend. De watervallen staan op de Werelderfgoed lijst van UNESCO en zijn maar liefst 1708 meter breed. Het gebied rond de watervallen is een beschermd nationaal park en herbergt vele dieren. Vanuit Victoria Falls worden tal van excursies en activiteiten aangeboden en is daarom een ideale uitvalsbasis. De plaats Victoria Falls ligt aan de Zimbabwe zijde van de Victoria watervallen.
"Embrace the colonial style, this hotel is an exceptional place to stay"
Some locations really benefit from a traditional approach. None more than Victoria Falls. The grandeur of the Falls themselves is well matched by the colonial splendour of the Victoria Falls Hotel. To add to this and with no hint of complacency the hotel was in a grand style and so atmospheric that I almost expected residents in impeccable Edwardian dress to join us on the Stanley Terrace for afternoon tea. The hotel is very well maintained and whilst the large rooms have a style from bygone years it seems totally fitting, still clean and fresh and totally in keeping with the setting. Too many older hotels seem to be sad relics of past glories with out of place modernisations but the Victoria Falls Hotel does not have this feel at all. It just felt totally right. The saying "location, location, location" should have been coined for this hotel. With an amazing vista of the sun rising through the spray in the early morning (which we could see from our room - do go for a Deluxe room) the occasional rainbow over the Falls as you look down the sloping lawns (maintained by a small tribe of delightful warthogs), the view of the river running under the iconic railway bridge, not to mention being able to wander down a sandy track straight to the entrance to the Falls park in a few minutes. Real care was shown by all the staff. Nothing was ever too much trouble and you always felt that they genuinely cared that you enjoyed your time at the hotel. Special mention should go to the Stanley Terrace staff (in our view this was simply the best place to be for lunch, tea, drinks and dinner) and Sharon at Customer services. That said everyone we encountered was worthy of congratulation. It graces itâ€™s superb location and is certainly THE place to stay on a visit to the Falls.
The Victoria Falls Hotel is a classic British Hotel ---stylish, elegant, picture perfect and immaculate service. We stayed in a deluxe room with breath taking views of the falls and the bridge and spectacular gardens. The Service was brilliant and the area was breathtakingly beautiful. We even did the afternoon tea at the hotel and KUDA ( the guy who served us on our table) was very warm and brilliant in customer service.
"Shabby but not chic"
This hotel is a horrifically bad value for the money. At nearly $500/night you would expect pretty good service and amenities. At the Vic hotel you get neither. The grounds and the common areas are well maintained, but this is where the good stops and the terrible begins. Our travails started with the pickup at the airport, where the hotel provided driver had decided to leave before we had cleared the painfully slow customs. The rooms themselves were beyond unacceptable. Where shall I begin? Let's start with the peeling paint and grime on the windows (something that a fresh coat of paint would address), continue on to the super cheap looking toilet bowl with rust water stains running down the middle, to the $2 stained Walmart-style shower curtain, to the rusty shower curtain rod, to the rubber mat that belongs in a $30/night Motel 6, to the single electrical outlet in the entire room, the disappointments kept coming from every direction. Don't take my word for it, just look at the attached photos. And let's not forget about the restaurants. If you spend $100 on a dinner for two at the Jungle Restaurant you get Old Country Buffet quality at a decidedly higher price point. I am pretty tolerant of a few misses here and there, but the Vic is such an underwhelming experience that it boggles the mind how they get such good reviews. A hotel does not qualify as 5-star just because it has a pretty view from the lawn. The Vic is, on balance, at most a 3 star hotel worth around $150/night, with $50 of that solely because of the view.
"Grand dame of a hotel!"
The Victoria Falls hotel looks and feels exactly like a Grand Dame of a British hotel -- highly, highly recommend. The grounds are immaculate, the rooms look like" Out of Africa", the view of the bridge to Zambia and the Zambezi River is to die for and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Love, love, love this hotel!
"View cannot be beat!"
This grand old hotel is a fantastic place to stay. We had a deluxe suite; the room and view are exceptional. This hotel occupies a prime location that cannot be beat. Even if you don't stay here, you have to come check out patio and view. High tea is worth it. The food and service is exceptional.
