Located on the edge of the eastern cataract of the Victoria Falls, the unpretentious AVANI Victoria Falls Resort (previously known as Zambezi Sun) offers warm African hospitality capturing Zambia’s rich and diverse heritage. With its earthy architecture, this luxury hotel draws its inspiration from the traditional design of wall enclosed African villages. The warm and simple décor touches in its colourful mosaics, rich fabrics and vibrant Zambian artworks and trimmings, create a memorable African experience at the resort.
This property forms part of the renowned Falls Resort, located within the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, covering 46-hectares of wilderness along the mighty Zambezi River. Its location in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya Wildlife Park places the AVANI Victoria Falls Resort in a setting with the dramatic torrent of Victoria Falls as a natural backdrop. The Victoria Falls, considered the largest sheet of falling water in the world, is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, as well as being an official Unesco World Heritage Site.
All 212 fresh and airy suites have en suite bathrooms and have been crafted to reflect their rich African roots. The rounded walls of each well-appointed suite are adorned in deep natural red tones and furnished in a fusion of handcrafted Zambian design elements. All rooms open out onto shaded private balconies overlooking the unspoilt African bush, or the expansive inner gardens, featuring a sparkling pool.
The exciting range of dining options ensures there is something for everyone. The Theatre of Food offers a relaxed and casual atmosphere; sumptuous buffet-style breakfast and dinners are served here. The Poolside Grill & Pool Deck Bar offers an alfresco dining alternative located alongside the entertainment area at the pool, an ideal setting for laid-back light lunches. Guests can also enjoy juicy lunch and dinner dishes at the Squires Grill, offering a steakhouse menu. And the open-air Crocodile Café serves a delicious assortment of lighter meals.
