The Zambezi Sun Hotel is located on the eastern side of the Victoria Falls (one of the Seven Wonders of the World) on the Zambian side. The resort complex is built along the edge of the Zambezi River and guests have direct access to the Victoria Falls on foot.

The hotel has the feel of a centuries-old walled city and comprises of open buildings in earthy colours with rambling clusters of rooms. The 212 en suite guest rooms are open and airy and are decorated in an African style. The rooms either spill outwards into the natural African bush, or face inwards into a vast, cool, landscaped pool with private, shaded balconies offering guests a place to unwind, relax and enjoy Africa’s greatest natural wonder.

The restaurant and bar area are situated in the centre of the hotel next to a curving swimming pool frequented by vervet monkeys.

A vast number of activities can be arranged at the activity centre at the hotel: guests can enjoy game drives in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park or picturesque early morning or sunset river cruises on a 12-seater boat. A cultural tour of Livingstone, including a visit to the museum and the Simonga Village, is a must for guests to this area as well as a guided tour of the Victoria Falls and rainforest on the Zambian Side. A shopping tour in Livingstone town also provides an opportunity to experience the local flavour of Livingstone while guests may also enjoy fishing on the Zambezi River. A variety of adrenaline activities are available which include white water rafting, canoeing, helicopter and microlight adventures, horseback safaris, elephant back safaris and lion walks, bungee jumping and a gorge swing.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
