For a more intimate sleeping experience than you can get elsewhere in Vic Falls, book into the posh but comfortable Victoria Falls Safari Club, which just celebrated its first birthday. This five-star hotel, which has just 20 rooms, is on the same grounds as the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, but feels worlds apart thanks to its location around a natural bend. The hotel, which is perched above the wilds of the Zambezi National Park, is just a five minute drive from town.
The rooms and suites are unique, ultra-modern affairs, unlike anything else you’ll see in Vic Falls. I loved the white-on-white décor, which contrasted nicely with color accents from the bright African paintings, burnished crimson lampshades and bold bed runners. The rooms feel light and airy, thanks to an open floor plan and a wall of sliding glass door windows, which open onto a private balcony overlooking the bush. The king size, divinely comfy, mosquito net-draped beds are strategically placed in front of these windows, so you can wake up to views of animals heading to the waterhole to drink. Nice luxury touches include the house brand red and white wines (which are presented gratis in each room), the electronic safe that can charge your laptop while you are out, and the complimentary mini-bar snacks and free sundowner drink in the club lobby.
Children under 10 are not allowed at the property, which is generally more suited towards couples: the open floor plan means the shower and bath are not separated from the bedroom by a door (although the toilet is private), so friends sharing a rooms may feel a bit uncomfortable here.
Although the Club shares a restaurant and swimming pool with the Lodge, it has its own bar and lounge area – a great spot to watch the sunset and mingle with other guests. There is also a TV in the lounge, but in keeping with safari tradition, individual rooms do not have televisions.
