The Victoria Falls Hotel has maintained much of its colonial elegance with its graceful architecture, spacious terraces and colorful gardens. The hotel has 161 air-conditioned rooms with private facilities, swimming pool and tennis courts and is only a ten-minute walk from the falls. You may enjoy dinner in the elegant Livingstone dining room or the Jungle Junction restaurant that offers a unique cultural dancing and ethnic eating experience.
The accommodations were excellent, we loved the Cullinan in Cape Town, Muchenje lodge in Chobe, the Victoria Falls Hotel, and Little Makololo camp in Hwange. We loved Cape Town itself and everything to do and see there, and of course it was fantastic to see Victoria Falls, and the safari at both parks/lodges fantastic!
Thanks for making Julia's 14th birthday unforgettable! Special thanks to Joy and Robert at Muchenje for that; and Lips, our guide, who showed us a great time on safari there! Of course thanks also to the staff at Little Makololo and especially our guide Charles there.Read More

When we first arrived at Little Makalolo we were greeted by a large herd of elephants, and a small herd of antelope. The Little Makalolo team was very efficient and helpful. Our guide, Livingston, was a joy to be with each day. He was excellent at spotting animals in the dark. Thank you for suggesting we bring gloves. I thought that was a little crazy but two mornings in Hwange were very cold and I was very happy to have the gloves!
Our stay at Mana Pools was great. Our guide, Gary, was a perfect match for us. With his help we were able to experience the peaceful serenity of the Zambezi River, as well as two very educational walks, including tracking a pride of lions. The other guides and guests were all very interesting and fun to talk with. We did not partake of the canoeing. It was very tempting, but both of us have done a fair amount of canoeing in the past and the thought of sitting in a canoe for several hours just wasn't very appealing.
Nothing prepared us for Pamushana. It was the perfect place to end our journey. And it's a very good thing it was our last camp because, no matter how nice the other camps were, they would have been a major come down after Pamushana. When we walked into our villa we were laughing from disbelief that something so beautiful and luxurious was out in the middle of nowhere! My husband spent his last day and a half on a sleeping and jacuzzi safari, while Jephat (our guide) and I hunted for white rhino and inspected the rock drawings. Our first night there we were within 20 feet of a black rhino, the last night we watched a black rhino drink 30 fee from our boat.
We were overwhelmed with the number of animals we saw especially at Hwange around the pans. We did see the Big Six - Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Hippopotamus, and Black and White Rhino. Our very first evening we came across a pride of 16 lions. The next evening we saw a smaller pride among whom were four one month old cubs - a rarity from what I was told. We never saw a grown male lion though we came close at Hwange, miss him by about 30 minutes.
The food everywhere was excellent. I didn't really know what to expect, but I certainly wasn't expecting the food to be as good as it was. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Vundu.
