On the eve of its 20th birthday, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge has been voted in the Top 25 Resorts and Safari Camps in Africa by Conde’ Nast Traveler. Set high on a plateau, which forms a natural boundary to the Zambezi National Park, enjoying uninterrupted views of unspoilt bushveld, spectacular African sunsets and an on-site waterhole, the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is ideally positioned to offer the most discerning traveller a taste of Africa at its best.
With 1.3 million votes cast and nearly 80,000 people voting in the 2013 Readers’ Choice Awards, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, the only Zimbabwean property to be listed in the category, has for the third year running, been recognised along with the ‘Best in the World’ by Conde’ Nast Taveler.
Named in conjunction with celebrated names such as Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve, the Singita properties of Sabi Sand, Kruger and Grumeti, Lions Sands and Phinda Private Game Reserve, it is clear that Zimbabwe as a destination is beginning to be thought of by astute, global travellers as a premier destination with Victoria Falls Safari Lodge leading the pack.
Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers superb game viewing opportunities, a range of activities to suit every age, inspired restaurants, unique cultural artefacts and art, banks and ATMs, and a hospital all within a National Park.
Conde’ Nast Traveler predicts that in 2014, more families will choose Africa as their holiday destination of choice. With safaris beginning to grow in popularity amongst families, Zimbabwe, a safe, peaceful, game abundant and beautifully diverse wilderness destination has much to offer. Zimbabwe is renowned for its fantastic National Parks and has a fine tradition of producing outstanding safari guides; eight Zimbabweans were acknowledged by Conde’ Nast Traveler in December 2013, as among the Top 25 Best Safari Guides.
Named by Lonely Planet in the Best Top 10 regions to travel in November and on the back of the success of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation general assembly in Victoria Falls in August – an event attended by representatives of 120 countries and 900 affiliate organisations, Zimbabwe has had an impressive 2013.
