Sphinx-like, Victoria Falls sets positive future

2 July 2015

Take a look at the logo of our world famous hotel. It features an African lion, a hunter and...an Egyptian Sphinx? Like our esteemed property it is more than 110 years old and symbolises the ambition at that gracious time of building the Cape to Cairo railway.

This is just one of the fascinating glimpses of history contained among the rich pages of our fresh, new The Victoria Falls Hotel website which we warmly invite you to peruse and to offer your comments.

The logo and our five star hotel – the oldest operating property in Zimbabwe - are etched in history but we have moved into the modern era with a superb refurbishment in 2013 that has not swayed from the original style of warmth, elegance and grace. 

We invite you to please consider us when next you visit Victoria Falls, where we are proud to hold prime location overlooking the gorge, the spray of the falls and famous bridge. We have long been the address of choice for royalty, celebrities, statesmen and the most discerning travellers.

There is an air of excitement and a positive spirit here! Tourism to Zimbabwe, and our major hub of Victoria Falls, continues to grow and our new international airport is sure to change those gears even faster as the enticing prospect of direct international flights from Europe and elsewhere become reality.

We are grateful to so many agents, ministries, authorities and others who believe in brand Zimbabwe and who so energetically promote us across the globe. Our brand is “A World of Wonders” - so apt, so beguiling.

Since 1904 The Victoria Falls Hotel has been an iconic place. A real treasure for Zimbabwe and Africa and one that we know today continues to delight our guests from all over the world due, not least because of our proud, loyal and happy staff who provide consistent attention to quality and international standards. They make YOUR experience even more unique.

I am proud to be General Manager of such an institution and look forward greatly to welcoming you – the Victoria Falls is a Natural Wonder of the World, a World Heritage Site and something one should see in one’s lifetime.
