Elegant and refined can best describe High Tea at the Victoria Falls Hotel in Zimbabwe. Enjoy the colonial atmosphere and spectacular views of the “smoke that thunders”.
Take a breather from sightseeing and exciting activities in Victoria Falls and savour a trip down memory lane. The historic Victoria Falls Hotel is a short walk from town and stands in an enviable position right next to the falls and opposite the railway station. Even if you are not a resident, it is quite the most ideal spot to spend time
after a long day or in between activities.
Relax on the wide stone patio under an umbrella and soak up the atmosphere. The landscaped gardens stretch between you and the wonderful views of the Victoria Falls Bridge
and the spray from the falls. You might even spot a warthog or 2 on bended knees snuffling about on the grass under the mature trees.
You can hear the thundering of the falls while you sip on your tea and nibble on tasty morsels. A stroll across the manicured lawns
takes you to the edge of the garden so you can look down onto the Zambezi River as it flows through the Batoka Gorge below the Victoria Falls Bridge.
The terrace is open throughout the day and provides a table d'hôte menu with an a la carte menu available after 11h00
. A delicious High Tea is served everyday in the afternoon. Wait staff are dressed the part and you'll be treated to a silver service tea.
Enjoy a fine spread of pastries, scones and sandwiches or if you prefer something chilled how about a glass of champagne or an exotic cocktail with your cucumber sandwiches? There is no doubt this is a superb place for sundowners, but you can also savour a candlelit dinner
- so hungry patrons can enjoy a great meal here at an earlier time than most other dining venues.
This iconic grand old lady of the falls holds a fond place in the hearts of many travellers. She was originally built in 1904 and has recently had a facelift, but all her charm and gracious dimensions remain. Her traditional colonial design and decor will take you right back in time to a bygone era. The mighty Victoria Falls is a 10 minute walk away via a private pathway from the hotel.
This luxurious 5-star hotel has a range of rooms and suites with air-conditioning, satellite TV and 24 hour room service. There is also a delightful spa for a range of beauty and body treatments (Clarins) plus a hair salon to keep you looking your best.
Enjoy gourmet dining in the Livingstone Room and African inspired cuisine in the Jungle Junction. Live ethnic entertainment is provided in the Jungle Junction and at the Poolside Bar at lunchtime. Stanley's Bar is adjacent to the terrace and just the spot for a refreshing gin and tonic or a cocktail.
