Zambezi Sun in Livingstone


Our entrance to Zambia in the trip to Botswana left behind Moremi and Savuti mobile camp That had accompanied us on the adventure. However, there was a surprise. The final icing was waiting for us in the form of accommodation with the Zambezi Sun in Livingstone, also known as AVANI Victoria Falls Resort, and of which we do this analysis with our opinion, whose main value is that it allows entry to Victoria Falls from Zambia walking from the same hotel (5 minutes) and included in the price or at Victoria Falls from Zimbabwe just by crossing the border also walking.

In addition, its integration with the friendliest fauna (zebras, impalas and other herbivores) is total, to the point that they serve as their own "lawnmower", but also that of some more aggressive, haha ​​...

Zambezi Sun in Livingstone or also called AVANI Victoria Falls Resort

I have to admit that when we enter theZambezi Sun, just a 10-minute walk from Victoria Falls and a 15-minute drive from Livingstone's Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport in ZambiaI was not aware of the place that the Mopane Game Safaris team had chosen to put the final icing on the Botswana trip

We entered a resort adapted to the conditions of a previously wild area that is now part of the natural reserves of Victoria Falls. What better example than live with zebras that inhabit the garden in absolute freedom and save the work of a gardener?

The 212 rooms the hotel hasThey have a traditional Zambian decoration that will not go unnoticed but with all the conditions of a luxury accommodation, with air conditioning and large beds

A bedside table, satellite TV with a giant screen, minibar and set with all kinds of coffees and tea, complete the offer

He bath, great, does not go unnoticed with that characteristic color that we all associate with "the African." Dryer, own gels and soaps and a good shower maintain the category

But if for something the Zambezi Sun, now AVANI Victoria Falls Resort, is for its garden and there the rooms have spared no huge windows overlooking a private balcony or a patio.

The establishment hasWiFi connection in the rooms and airport shuttle service.

Zambezi Sun as a base for Victoria Falls

But let's not fool ourselves, the Zambezi Sun or AVANI Victoria Falls Resort is a perfect resort for relaxation and a pool day (it has an outdoor day) after a hard day of safari ...

... but if something is a reference it is because of the inclusion in the price of its added value ! access to Victoria Falls from Zambia! thanks to the following privileged location

Reaching this wonder that nature gives us has no major problem. It is accessed through the back of the complex thanks to a voucher that you get when you register the first day. There you have all our experience in "Victoria Falls from Zambia"

his proximity to the border of Zimbabwe also enables the possibility of observing waterfalls from this country, a highly recommended option especially in the dry season, because it will be the area of ​​greatest splendor and, in our opinion, the best experience between both parties. To do this from the Zambezi Sun or AVANI Victoria Falls Resort you can walk to the border.

Once the visa has been paid (now there is the Zambia-Zimbabwe multiple visa option), you only have to enjoy half a day (plenty of time) from this area. You have our experience in "Victoria Falls from Zimbabwe"

In addition to the must-see, the Zambezi Sun or AVANI Victoria Falls Resort has some extraordinary gardens where, in addition to zebras, impalas and other herbivores, you have to be careful not to "bathe" in the surrounding lakes because there are crocodiles less friendly Use the pool!

The Zambezi Sun has also 2 restaurants. The Theater of Food restaurant is in charge of breakfast and theme dinners. The grill bar by the pool offers light lunches, pizzas and cocktails.

Zambezi Sun verdict in Livingstone, our opinion

We are talking about a resort whose prices can range from € 180 to more than € 500 of their suites, so that the inclusion of the entrance to the Victoria Falls as well as all the facilities available, are more than paid

AVANI Victoria Falls Resort

As PROs We would highlight the Wi-Fi available in the rooms, the entrance included, the excellent themed dinners, the light meal option of the pool and the non-excessive price of the pool drinks

The AGAINSTThey are oriented to high prices by a 3 star, due to its location, in the high tourist seasons

Finally, it should be noted that the Zambezi Sun houses a playground and a games room as well as the possibility of organizing excursions and activities in the immediate vicinity, such as bungee jumping, rafting, helicopter flights and elephant or rhino safaris (of which we stay with you want)

Would we recommend it? Without a doubt, YES. It seems to us an unbeatable option that Mopane Game Safaris has decided to put final or initial icing (for the trips that start here) in its complete adventure. Likewise, if we were free, we would do it too.
