Can't beat the Waterfront
I have stayed at the Waterfront previously, and it maintains its lively and adventurous atmosphere, great service, reasonably priced good food and full bar, and its status as a one-stop shop for arranging all activities in the area. The location on the river is superb, the deck and bar area and pool are rustically inviting and picture-perfect at dusk, and the on-site travel agency makes planning one's entire agenda while at Vic Falls a breeze. The staff is always gracious and attentive, and small in-room inconveniences were immediately addressed. Extraneous requests were remembered and generously granted by management and staffers. The riverside room with a terrace, reached walking over the very colorful footbridge with its tree cover and running stream, offers the kind of environment one would want in such a place as Vic Falls. The hotel offers notably close-by access to key activities -- safaris to Chobe and Mosi-ao-Tunya parks, the falls, microlight flights, rafting, and the sunset cruise departing from its dock. Patrons are of all ages and nationalities. A great lodging experience.

I loved how it was on the waterfront. Also, the room I stayed in was perfect for my trip. Small, clean, Private, New, no problems. And the little garden area in front of all the rooms was great.

Tent location and Generator
Stayed in adventure village, where we were positioned right next to the camp generator. This was very unpleasant as they started up the generator around 06h00 daily. One evening it even ran up until 23h00 after we asked them to turn it off. The tents were not full, our feeling is that we could have been placed in a better unit due to the length of stay. First taxi fair from the airport was ridiculously expensive and not related to any of the other taxi fees we paid during our stay.

The upgraded us on arrival which was really nice! The staff was excellent. The free breakfast was delicious. The only downside was that there wasn’t a lot of hot water and there were ants in the shower, but I think the rest of the amenities definitely made up for it!

View from riverfront room is incredible, but room is old and outdated, especially the bathroom for this price. There is no sealed door to bathroom so lacked privacy for me
