THE KINGDOM HOTEL

Most recent hotel at Vic Falls and closest hotel to the Falls.


The Kingdom Hotel in Zimbabwe is a luxury hotel on the Zimbabwean side of the Victoria Falls. The establishment is the ideal choice for the visitor who wants the comforts of a luxury hotel, an environment with natural beauty (such as the Victoria Falls), as well as hotel entertainment such as a casino, spa, numerous restaurants and children’s activities.

The architecture of the luxury Kingdom Hotel in Victoria Falls resembles that of the city of Munhumutapa, capital of an ancient civilisation in Zimbabwe. Accommodation at the Kingdom Hotel is truly luxurious, with guests being accommodated in 294 rooms: 4 suites; 112 rooms with king-size beds; 102 queen-size beds; 34 with king-size and bunk beds; as well as 40 with twin beds and bunk beds. All rooms are en suite and equipped with airconditioning, satellite TV, telephone, hairdryer, safe and tea/coffee-making facilities.

In addition to a variety of restaurants (Whitewaters, Thundercloud Spur, the Burger Place, the Sweet Hut and Panarottis pizzeria), bars (Rapids Pool Bar, Quartermains Bar, Wild Thing Action bar, the Pit), casino (with slot machines, Black Jack and American Roulette) and four swimming pools, the luxurious Kingdom Hotel in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, also offers a business centre and Internet café, spa and beauty parlour, hair salon, a supervised children’s play area, curio shops and 24-hour room service. Bills from the restaurants and bars can be settled on one, final account.

Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is the capital of the adrenalin junkies. There are light aircraft flips across the Falls, white river rafting and kayaking on the Zambezi River, bungi jumping from the Victoria Falls bridge (for the brave ones), an elephant ride, or a swim in the ‘Devil’s Pool’ (a small rock pool right on the ‘lip’ of the Victoria Falls). The latter must surely rate as one of the experiences you are guaranteed to remember for the rest of your life!
