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.
"An olde-colonial delight!"
It's not old-fashioned - it is fashionably old. This hotel has preserved all the aspects of an olde colonial hotel and added great service, imaginative cuisine and fantastic people to make staying here an absolute pleasure. Thanks to Priscilla on t6he Terrace, Bushi in reception and Lilli in the restaurant - it is wrong to pick out names as everyone as excellent. They made our stay absolutely perfect.
"Excellence at the Victoria Falls. "
An absolutely magnificent establishment. It is much bigger than it looks from the outside!!! One has a variety of eating places to choose from. Enjoyed the High Tea on Stanley's Terrace, and the breakfast and dinner at Jungle Junction. The buffet is the best I have had in a long time! Stanley's Bar was great to have a drink and I enjoyed the I presume... The cocktails are deadly! The whisky selection is awesome! I stayed at the Stable Signature Wing, and it was perfect. Enjoy the history of the hotel from Sindiso Mabhena...He is amazing!!
"50 year old me loved it as much as 30 year old me"
You cannot go wrong with this classic. That said, be careful booking suites. They vary wildly in charm and value. Regular rooms are pretty linear in the trade off with cost. There are trinket salesmen just outside the compound. You don't need to worry about crime with these guys, but they are persistent and clever. They'll talk you out of your money, and use any tactic from charm to guilt to do it. The restaurants are so good it doesn't make sense. You're isolated in the middle of the bush, and they turn out consistently delicious, very high-quality food. The booking services for guides and tours are reliable. You cannot go wrong.
"Beautiful Facility and Grounds"
Yes, the facility and grounds felt like a step back in time to the elegance and grandeur of colonial days. The wall artwork in the long, period-furnished hallways, including mounted horns from a variety of species, was very interesting. Courtyards, pools, landscaping, were all lovely. The restaurants and food were good and the breakfast buffet was lavish. The stone art gallery near the Jungle Junction restaurant had some very impressive works of art. Our room, however, left quite a bit to be desired. It was very small with no comfortable seating (choice of the bed or one stiff-backed desk chair). The air conditioning unit was loud and had a poor cycle (wouldn't kick on until it was pretty stifling hot then didn't kick off until it was very chilly). The window blinds had to be closed for any privacy (as we were on 1st floor right beside a garden area with people walking by) but then all light was blocked out and the room was dark; there was no way to set the blinds to afford privacy and daylight at the same time. The bathroom was also small, with a narrow in-tub shower, and the cheap shower curtain insisted on blowing and sticking to your body whenever you tried to shower. It would be such an improvement (though admittedly inauthentic) to have a bowed shower curtain rod that would provide a bit more space and/or a heavier-duty curtain. The bed had a broken support board, making it slope noticeably on one side, and while maintenance came quickly to investigate (and agreed with the problem), they failed to fix it while we were there. The mosquito netting around the 4-poster bed was a nice touch, but with only one opening, getting out of the bed required climbing over each other or over the high footboard. The walls were plain and unadorned. The carafe water that was provided appeared to be tap water rather than bottled water. Overall, we were quite let down with the room, as we were expecting a lot closer to luxury for the price. So we spent as much time outside the room as possible, walking the beautiful grounds, exploring in town (walkable distance), and visiting the Falls and the Lookout Cafe. The staff was huge and the service was overall good -- dignified, efficient, and polite but not especially friendly.
"Step back in time"
A truely lovely place. You get the feeling that it has been the same for the past 100 years. Our room was lovely and spacious. We had a room in the Stables, there was a lovely courtyard. An easy walk to the falls. Breakfast every morning was overlooking the falls. The food at breakfast was fine, but the dinner buffett was unimpressive. The other resturant that we tried was also good. Since this was at the end of a long trip, we did take advantage of the spa services at the hotel. They were wonderful and attentive. I recommend a bit of pampering while your here. The staff worked with me to coordinate our schedule and keep everything on time. The staff in the gift shop was able to recommend a local craftsman who was able to get me what I wanted. Needless to say, the star is the falls, but this hotel is a must see all by itself. Iconic, and relaxing!
