Nice hotel close to Victoria falls

We stayed there as a family of 4. Transportation was set up by the hotel to and from the airport and we were able to walk to the falls. 1 Of our children was sick during the stay and the staff treated him like a king to see if he would feel better. Would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

Close to the Falls, 5 minutes by car

Pros: Everything! The friendly staff, the proximity to the Falls, close to shops.
Cons: The wi-fi service, very poor if any at all in the room, ok in the lobby.
Location: Shops nearby, within walking distance. Restaurants, bakery, grocery store
The staff was very friendly and attentive. The breakfast buffet was excellent even by U.S. Standards!
