The Palm River Hotel graciously overlooks the mighty Zambezi

Designed by talented Zimbabwean architects in one of the most beautiful settings along the iconic Zambezi River in Zimbabwe the Palm river Hotel embraces all that is African and tranquil, modern and useful. It’s a place where visitors can feel at home and spoiled when they come to Victoria Falls to see the World Heritage Site thundering over huge cliffs to the gorge below. 

The Palm River hotel creates a haven of serenity in a busy tourist area and luxurious facilities keep guests coming back for more every year.  Find it just 4 km upstream from the Falls, the huge sparking swimming pol set in lush gardens with tall palm trees, and other lovely shady indigenous trees right on the river banks. Hear the water thundering all day as you embark on the many activities around you to see more of the wildlife and scenery in this idyllic centre. 

The rooms are lavish four star quality with private balconies, spacious airy bedrooms, large beds with awesome garden and river views, classic furnishings and modern bathrooms with showers, Wi-Fi, tea and coffee and fans. This is world class Zimbabwe holiday accommodation for everyone who loves to travel.

Two wheelchair accessible rooms are a huge plus at the Palm River Hotel on the ground floor closest to the Main Area – with multiple handrails, special beds and chairs, alarms and phones. Enjoy the many eating places where space and light abound – the large fancy dining hall for sociable meals and the more intimate smaller bar outside serving snacks and drinks all day – guests can also dine down at the river bank under the trees in true barbeque fashion with traditional Zimbabwean meats and dishes the main attraction. There may be friendly elephants, hippos and buffalos too.

The other option is a breakfast cruise on board the luxury Ra-Ikane River Cruise, an historic ride up the Zambezi River in search of birds and views. Go for a walk at the Falls in the wet rainforest there, seeing all angles of the falling water and hearing the stories of this incredible natural wonder from a pro guide. 

Known as Africa’s Adventure Capital, Vic Falls is indeed the place to try white water rafting, bungee jumping, helicopter flips, game viewing in 54 different national parks within a 100km radius, and more. 



The Palm River Hotel is an exceptional family run tourist destination on the Zambezi River near Vic Falls in Zimbabwe and it blends luxury with homely relaxation, top class facility with old style hospitality. Bok one of 73 lavish rooms with river views under stately indigenous trees, all a 4 km stone’s throw from Victoria Falls. 

Guests find themselves as part of an environmental ethic here at the hotel linked to the Vic Falls green ethics of recycling, alternative energies, conservation and cultural empathy. Take off on many fascinating activities around the area, on river and at the waterfall, seeing and learning more about the landscape, the wildlife and the people who come from here. 

Retire to chic bedrooms with private balconies, fans, comfy beds and baths, gorgeous décor and incredible views with the sounds of birds and strong water falling over the Falls in the distance! An amazing 60 deluxe rooms offer air con, Wi-Fi, TV, mini bars, tea and coffee and more! 

Five-star bliss and the dining areas are magnificent with the large hall leading out to the al fresco bar and then down at the river under the trees is the option to barbeque and watch the elephants at play, sampling authentic Zimbabwean foods. The river cruise offers breakfasts too so that is a wonderful way to greet the day and see the animals on the river banks up close. 

Palm River Hotel is based on the architecture of the traditional East-Coast Australian design style of the Queenslander with huge glass doors opening to the garden, ornate terraces and steps rolling down to the lawn and the upper class feeling of comfort permeating the hotel and surrounds. Service is so slick and so friendly that guests feel like royalty and want to return!
