Avani Victoria Falls Resort

A 3 star resort right beside the Zambezi River on the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls


The Avani Victoria Falls Resort is a sister hotel to the Royal Livingstone Hotel located a few hundred metres upstream of the Victoria Falls and Avani. This 3 star quality Minor Hotel Group (ex Sun International) establishment is located a few minutes walk from the Royal Livingstone in The Falls Resort, and is also right next to the Zambezi River, although the view of the river from the hotel is minimal. The hotel is on the Mosi oa Tunya Road on the Zambian side, and it is a 500m walk from the Victoria Falls themselves. Shuttle service to and from the falls is available at the hotel, as well as golf carts between the hotel and the Royal Livingstone.

Guests have a pick of 212 en-suite rooms at Avani Victoria Falls
Resort. All of the rooms have a private balcony and after refurbishments in
2016, they are characterised by a mixture of African and a touch Mediterranean
influence, with bright colours in the suites and lighter colours in the standard
rooms. Bathrooms also hint at native patterns blended with northern designs.

The grounds are expansive with all the facilities guests would
need from the reception at the entrance which attends to guest services, gift
and curio shop and florist, to a very large swimming pool, banking facilities
with Barclays Bank, a clinic, Kamp Kwena Children’s Club with baby sitting
services. Guests at Avani are welcome to use some of the Royal Livingstone
facilities such as the gym and hair salon. Similar to the ones at the Royal Livingstone Hotel,
there are gazebos where guests can enjoy relaxing massages and rubs. The Falls Resort
keeps a few zebra, impala and giraffes which guests will definitely spot when
they walk around.

There are a few dining options at the hotel. Room service is
available for all guests; Little Squires is a steakhouse which is near the
activities centre; the Theatre of Food is the buffet restaurant near the pool
area; the Pool Grill and Bar are on the other side of the pool; At the edge of
the resort is Kingfisher Braai area which is a barbeque site available for
functions on request. Their Boma is located on the path between the Avani
and the Royal Livingstone Hotels. This is a traditional African restaurant with
plenty of entertainment, fire place and grill only opens for dinners. The
hotel’s suites have a dining area for private dining within the rooms.

The Avani Victoria Falls Resort is very family friendly and caters for all
types of guests. The location in relation to the Victoria Falls is most
advantageous, and guests at Avani can visit the falls as many times as they like
without paying the National Parks fees. For 3 star accommodations, staying this hotel is a bit pricey.
However, the convenience, facilities and services offered at the resort make up
for it.
