Zambezi Sun

Zambezi Sun Overview

One of the best value-for-money hotels on either side of the river, the Zambezi Sun has an extra advantage over its competitors. Set at the edge of the eastern cataract, it is the closest hotel to Victoria Falls. Indeed, it’s so close that you can walk to the thundering waterfall in under 10 minutes. Hotel guests enjoy free entrance to the falls and can go as many times as they like.

A sprawling, colourful hotel set in lush gardens, the Zambezi Sun is the accommodation of choice for budget-conscious travellers. It’s also ideal for families with young children, thanks to its casual, relaxed atmosphere, four-sleeper suites and kids activity club. The hotel’s in-house activity desk takes care of any bookings you want to make while the nearby Falls Entertainment Centre is a more extensive facility with shops, an activity centre and restaurants.

Distinguished yet affordable, the Zambezi Sun is an ideal base for travellers to discover the wonders of Victoria Falls. Adjoining the Victoria Falls National Park, the hotel’s lawns are often grazed by zebra and warthog, adding an unmistakable African ambience. The roar of the waterfall is heard throughout the property and in peak flood season, mist from the falls drifts over the gardens. This hotel is all about location.
