Victoria Falls area hotel options??

Jump to last reply

I have been reading this forum for a while in preparation for a trip next fall. With two friends, I am planning what will be a first trip to Southern Africa. We are working with a local (SA) agent but nothing is fixed yet. I am sure to have many questions as the plans progress but here is the first:

We are tentatively planning two nights in the Victoria Falls area and have decided to overnight in Zambia. Time is the first week in October. The options presented so far are either the Royal Livingstone or the Islands of Siankaba. The RL seems to evoke a wide variety of opinions. Siankaba looks fabulous in the photos but how will it be in October?

I would love to read the opinions of those here who are familiar with the area and the accommodations and location and overall experience of both places. The River Club has not been discussed.

Many thanks for all of the great advice here so far.
