The 72-room Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, which faces the setting sun and is just 4 kilometers from the magnificent Victoria Falls, is perched on a plateau overlooking the Zambezi National Park and provides a special opportunity to observe animals.

The Association of Zimbabwe Travel Agents has voted The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge as the nation’s best safari lodge/resort hotel for 24 years. The lodge is renowned for its views over a waterhole frequented by herds of elephant, buffalo, and kudu.

The lodge, which is made of wood and thatch, climbs several floors and resembles a huge open-plan tree house. Its core area is home to the acclaimed MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant, the legendary Buffalo Bar, a two-tiered swimming pool, and a fitness center.

Why The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge?

MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant

The award-winning MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is not to be missed. The restaurant is widely-known for its impeccable service, exquisite meals and fine selection of South African wines.

The restaurant is decorated with an African safari flair and just the right atmosphere in which to relax and relive the day’s animal sightings.

The international a la carte menu also includes popular dishes with a local flair like Warthog Fillet and Impala Loin as well as Kudu fillets, and for the more adventurous, smoked crocodile pasta. Meals are all beautifully prepared with only the freshest ingredients.

The split-level restaurant overlooks the lodge’s on-site watering hole that is often frequented by buffalo, elephant, warthog, antelope and colourful birdlife – the views alone guarantee a memorable meal. The view over the African bush at sunset is one not to be forgotten.

As the restaurant is very popular bookings are essential.

MaKuwa-Kuwa is open every day for breakfast (06h30- 10h00), lunch (12h30 – 14h00) and dinner (19h00 – 22h00). The dress code is smart-casual. Summer evenings are warm, so light clothing is ideal, but winter evenings (June – August) can be chilly, so patrons are advised to bring a warm layer or two.

Dinner guests are encouraged to be seated by 19h30 to enjoy MaKuwa-Kuwa’s resident acapella group’s beautiful African songs.

MaKuwa-Kuwa is also available for private parties of no more than 100 guests, provided that most of the guests are resident at either the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, Victoria Falls Safari Club, Victoria Falls Safari Suites or Lokuthula Lodges. All bookings for private parties can be done through the functions manager or reservation office.

Experiences

Siduli Hide

A sit in the Siduli Hide at the edge of the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge waterhole offers the incredible opportunity to watch wildlife at very close quarters for a sustained period of time.

Designed to look like a termite mound, guests are concealed inside the hide, from where they may closely observe large herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as kudu, warthogs, crocodiles, marabou storks, vultures and more.

The hide sit, ideal for keen photographers and wildlife enthusiasts who seek a unique and exclusive way to enjoy wildlife while visiting Victoria Falls, is run by professional guide Charles Brightman.

The two-hour activity, which is available to groups of up to six, is best done in the early morning or late afternoon.
