The Palm River Hotel’s location could not be more idyllic, situated as it is along the banks of the iconic Zambezi River, among towering indigenous trees and only 4 kilometres from Africa’s Natural World Wonder, Victoria Falls – so close, in fact, that on a clear, quiet day you can hear the thunder and see the spray of the mighty waterfall from your room.
Well-appointed with modern international standard 4-star hotel furnishings, all Deluxe Rooms include a private balcony where guests can enjoy views of the Zambezi River and the gardens, a spacious bedroom with a writing desk, fixed luggage storage, right and left bedside tables, bedside reading lights and a fully equipped tea and coffee station.
The clean lines of the contemporary bathroom feature an open and spacious shower, a double vanity for both guests to enjoy their own space and all the amenities necessary to compliment your stay. A generous fixed wardrobe space includes shelves and ample hanging space.
The Palm River Hotel restaurant, located in the main structure with a large al fresco dining area under a canopy of trees, will have an à la carte restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to hotel guests and day visitors. With stunning garden views sweeping down to the Zambezi River, the cuisine will reflect the natural setting, using fresh, local ingredients to create unique fusion fare.
Victoria Falls is deemed ‘Africa’s Adventure Capital’ offering everything from helicopter flights above the Falls, highwire activities over the 120m gorges or white-water rafting the rapids beyond the World Wonder, Victoria Falls waterfall. Adventure also awaits within the 5 National Parks within 100km of Victoria Falls, offering unmatched game viewing in untouched wilderness areas.
The luxury Ra-Ikane River Cruise on our historic and intimate cruise boats offers Breakfast, Birdwatching, Lunch and Sunset cruises on the Zambezi River, a service exclusive to the Palm River Hotel and Ilala Lodge Hotel.
