Scott, us1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Great stay, best location
Overall my stay was wonderful. It was a bit disappointing the pool was not available every day due to renovations, but management went out of their way to arrange access to another hotel pool. When things go wrong it is the way they are handled that matters, and for this they get top marks. Very nice lodge in the best position in Victoria Falls. I will return.
