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.
"The Victoria Falls Hotel, the Ultimate experience."
The Victoria Falls Hotel was first built in the mid nineteen hundreds on the arrival of the railway. It faces the Falls and the bridge joining Zambia and Zimbabwe is clearly seen from the hotel and gardens. In the rainy season the spray from the Zambezi rises about 300 feet creating a forest of tropical birds and plants. The visitor to the Falls at this time is given special wet gear to be protected from the fall out. Last year, my husband I were walking at this point, completely alone, when we were joined by a male leopard for about a hundred yards. A surreal experience. The hotel is built in the colonial style with comfortable rooms and great food. Very spacious. A short walk from the hotel takes you to the Falls. Other activities include, walking with lions, riding elephants, a small game park, bungee jumping off the bridge, jip wiring over the Zambezi, boat trips and white water rafting. Of course, you can do absolutely nothing and just enjoy the view. A absolute must see and great for the whole family.
"Wonderful Victorian hotel very well furnished and excellent staff"
We stayed in the stables block which has its own reception and afternoon tea and evening drinks. The rooms are excellent well furnished and lovely comfortable beds. The food is excellent and you can have a special Castro meal in specialty restaurant. The staff were excellent and very helpful. This is an excellent Victorian hotel and worth a stay. Excellent views and entrance to Victoria falls.
"Living on past glory"
There are many good things about TVFH but modern is not one of them so if you want all the conveniences, this might not be the place for you. Having said that, the hotel is beautifully situated and the grounds lovely. The view of Victoria Falls mist and the bridge connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia is sublime. The hotel definitely retains the magical aura of another time. Service was not quite up to par for a 5 star hotel especially at breakfast when I waited 15 minutes for a cup of decaf coffee but the staff's pleasant attitude almost makes up for it. The public spaces seem to have had more attention recently than the guest rooms. I had requested a king but got two separate twin beds, so small that I was afraid to turn over in case I fell out. Since I was only there for 2 nights I didn't bother to complain but had I been staying longer I certainly would have. The pool and surrounding area was delightful but trying to scout around for an extra towel was challenging. There didn't seem to be any staff on duty; if they were there, they stayed well hidden. Nonetheless I enjoyed my time in the pool. There seems to be quite a bit of renovation taking place and I'd like to go back once it's complete to experience the improvements in plumbing, bathroom layout including plugs that can accommodate a hair dryer so you can be in front of a mirror while drying/styling your hair. The rooms can be dark and new draperies and other furnishings would go a long way to lighten the environment.
We spent a weekend at the Victoria Falls Hotel. We had a deluxe room, which overlooked the bridge and the sweeping grounds. This hotel has the yesterday year of old school charm , with excellent service from all of the staff, together with exceptionally wide smiles. The hotel is well located to the Victoria Falls and the Look Out Restaurant, both in walking distance. We truly had an exceptional time whilst there and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. Dinner at the Livingstone Room is a must, but ensure that you book in advance. The breakfast was also stunning with chilled bubbly on tap.
"Old Charm Victorian Heritage Hotel"
Proper old world victorian charm in the heart of Africa. Christmas Lunch on the terrace was memorable. Views of the Gorge were spectacular. All round friendly staff and excellent ambiance. Convenient to access the Falls and a few steps from the border into Zambia.
