The hotel is situated within the Mosi-oa-Tunya Nature Resort and also on a World Heritage Site, we also have the gate to Victoria Falls on our property and all guests staying at the hotel are offered free unlimited access to the Victoria Falls
AVANI Victoria Falls stands apart for its natural beauty and vibrant local style. The 46-hectare grounds attract zebras, giraffes, impalas and monkeys. Guests can stroll around the gardens for a wild nature walk, go bird watching, investigate the herb and vegetable garden, or see the worm farm and compost project in action. A series of eight buildings are designed with hints of rugged nature and local culture. Adobe-style architecture is perked up with bright mosaics, ethnic wall stencils, timber and plaster ceilings, Zambian artworks and accessories – setting the scene for a real African experience.
212 rooms and suites are awash with warm African colours and Zambia's charms. The views are breathtaking to match – either of the pool and landscaped gardens, or lush African bush. Spaces are designed for a relaxing night's sleep and down time in between adventures. Bathrooms feature both a tub and shower for a long soak or quick blast. Creature comforts include air-conditioning, a satellite TV, free WiFi and a desk, keeping guests cool, connected and entertained. In-room tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge, plus ice machines nearby, make it easy to concoct a hot brew or cool drink. Repellent devices draw insects outside so guests can relax undisturbed. Al fresco spaces reveal stunning African scenery.
AVANI Rooms offer inviting space with the choice of a double or twin beds. Upstairs rooms come with a private balcony, and downstairs guests can chill out at the table and chairs in the garden. AVANI Superior Rooms give guests upgraded amenities and extra services, such as an express check-in and sparkling wine on arrival. AVANI Suites provide even more room with modern purpose-designed lounging and dining spaces. AVANI Family Rooms welcome tribes of two adults and two children below 12 years, with two double beds in each room, and a table and chairs outside so parents can watch little ones playing in the garden.
A central restaurant pavilion makes dining fresh and fun. The Theatre of Food is just that - a showcase of buffet surprises to start and end the day. Familiar international cuisines and bold African specials change each night and live music picks up the mood. To one side, the colourful Moroccan Lounge offers a comfortable spot to relax with drinks throughout the day, sip cocktails before dinner, and lounge afterwards over nightcaps. The Poolside Grill & Pool Bar bustles at lunchtime with snacks, wood-fired pizzas and Marimba band rhythms. From morning till night, the bar pours out juicy refreshments, icy cold beers, cocktails and late evening tipples. For romance or a special group party, a private BBQ, Braai or bush dinner under the stars with a personal waiter can be booked at the Kingfisher Braai Site next to the bird hide, which is enclosed by Matepe poles and boasts its own private bar and a pond full of singing frogs. The Mukuni and David Livingstone Bomas, designed in traditional Zambian style, serve themed dinners every Saturday night, with scenery depicting a Zambian village, plus local brews and food on display.
Nearby, the Royal Livingstone Victoria Falls Zambia Hotel by Anantara welcomes AVANI guests to dine at The Royal Livingstone Dining Room, which impresses with European classics, authentic Zambian specialties and Indian influences, and a pianist tinkling the ivories during dinner. For an exquisite dining trip on the tracks of wild Africa, sundowners and dinner aboard a 1920s steam train ferries guests across the famous bridge between Zambia and Zimbabwe, overlooking the mighty Falls.
Relaxation flows all day at the expansive outdoor swimming pool, from refreshing dips to topping up a sun-kissed tan, with a tropical cocktail in hand. Extending the leisure options, AVANIKIDS invites the cubs to run wild at Zuba's Adventure Camp, enjoying the safe jungle playground, pack walks out in nature and interesting trips, all under the watchful eye of trained child minders, who also offer babysitting services, giving parents quiet time out. For spa bliss, the inter-hotel shuttle whisks AVANI guests to Anantara Spa at the Royal Livingstone Victoria Falls Zambia Hotel by Anantara for luxurious African-inspired pampering. Big game safaris, river trips and adrenaline-pumping thrills are all at hand, with helpful local staff at the Activity Desk recommending the ultimate trips.
Weddings have a unique wow factor, with the majestic Falls as a backdrop. Vows can be exchanged in flourishing gardens or an elegant indoor ceremony. Poolside toasts tipple into a party under the stars. Topping it all off is a wildly romantic honeymoon.
