Beautiful spot on the Zambezi!
Amazing place right on the Zambezi! New/beautiful construction with clean and comfortable rooms. Staff is incredibly helpful and they are able to arrange and coordinate any activities (guides falls tours, rafting, fishing, day trips to Chobe NP, etc.). Location is only minutes from Victoria Falls (town) and VFNP. Perfect spot…would definitely go back to!

The architecture is fantastic. The location on the banks of the Zambezi is fantastic. The property exudes quality, luxury and comfort. The staff was super friendly and went the extra mile to make us comfortable. Spending time at the hotel was as exciting as going out to do activities and coming back to our room was so satisfying every time. The dining area was particularly epic with the ultra high ceilings and decor fit for royalty, making breakfast in particular, an occasion to look forward to. We would stay here again. Well done Palm River Lodge!
