Pick another one. You'll be disappointed. Reminded me a little of a small vegas casino hotel with the bad food.

I agree with Luangwablondes.

You are visiting one of the seven natural wonders of the world...the last thing one should settle for is staying at the Kingdom Hotel when there are so many wonderful properties nearby.

On the Zim side of the falls, there is the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge and the Victoria Falls Hotel. The VFSL should not be much more expensive than the Kingdom Hotel.

On the Zam side of the falls there are quite a few properties to choose from, including the Stanley Safari Lodge, the Royal Livingstone, Sussi & Chuma Lodge, Tongabezi, Songwe Village and for a budget option that will be about the same price as the Kingdom, you may choose to stay in the Zambezi Sun.

One final consideration would be to stay at CCAfrica's Matetsi Water Lodge, about a 45 minute drive outside of Victoria Falls but within the Matetsi Game Reserve, offering day and night game drives, canoeing in the Zambezi River and included daily trips to the falls, if desired.

You will definitely see a lot of elephants, giraffe and antelope while at Matetsi, as well as be provided with your own private plunge pool and a very nice chalet. Matetsi is VERY reasonable with the current CCAfrica special of buy 3 nights and get the 4th night works out to only $375 per night ($187.50 pp).

As you see, there are some wonderful places to stay while in Victoria Falls, but I am afraid I would not include the Kingdom Hotel amongst them.

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge will be a good alternative
