    Overview 8.45 /10

    With its adobe building architecture, inspired by the Moroccan villages and by its circular concept, Zambezi Sun offers a frame matching perfectly with its surrounding traditional African villages. This feeling is reinforced by the selection of natural colors, raw material and many typical African decoration objects. In the centre of the hotel, one nice swimming pool with lagoon shape is encircled by a bar and a restaurant buffet. The rooms are installed in the small buildings with one flat and are spread out in a circle arc around the common spaces composing the main animation area. Starting from the lobby of Zambezi Sun, customers can access directly to the "The Falls" congress and leisure centre offering many activities and excursions. For the families, Happy Hippo Club is taking care of the children aged between 4 and 12 ( between 2-4, if accompagnied by an adult) every day from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Several playing activities as well as full day or half day excursions will be proposed to the families. Zambezi Sun allows as well to reach Victoria falls with only few minutes of walking thanks to its location.

    The restaurant buffet next to the swimming pool is open for breakfast between 7:00 AM and 11:00 AM, and for dinner between 6:00 PM and 10:00 PM. A big selection of various fresh products and international specialties will be displayed on big buffets. A "cooking show" space allows especially to taste excellent beefs and fishes grilled upon request. This large salon which is widely open on exterior and prolonged by a sundeck, is very caracteristic. The intimity idea was considered as well when concepting the installation area. Please note that a local musician group performs every night. For dinner, there is also another alternative: the Boma restaurant which is located between Zambezi Sun and Royal Livingston. This restaurant is constructed as a typical African village, profiting by the authentic surrounding and offers a traditional music spectacle and African dances performances during the buffets on fresh air. This place particularly fit groups and seminars with its capacity of 300 seats and is accessible to the customers of the two hotels. Finally, you may profit by the "Pool Grill" during the day offering grilled food and light dishes, around the pool area.
