Zimbabwe is back! Enjoy the VIP Club Life with Africa Albida Tourism
Hailed as one of 2018’s hottest destinations, now is the time to stay in luxury at the refurbished Victoria Falls Safari Club
February 2018…// With Zimbabwe being lauded as one of the go-to destinations for 2018, guests wanting to get a taste of this fantastic country need look no further than Africa Albida Tourism (AAT). Leading Southern African hotel and lodge operator, AAT, offers guests a range of accommodation options in Zimbabwe, including Victoria Falls Safari Club, which is currently undergoing a $600,000 refurbishment. The developments at Victoria Falls Safari Club have been prompted by a surge in international arrivals which look set to continue over the next few years, with increased hotel occupancy throughout Victoria Falls and three new international airlines now flying to the area. Victoria Falls Safari Club’s renovations will see upgrades to the boutique hotel’s public areas, as well as the addition of a new swimming pool, sundeck and gazebo. The refurbishment is due to be complete by March 2018.
When you’re not exploring Victoria Falls and making the most of this adventure hub, guests staying at the exclusive Club property will be able to enjoy new and improved facilities such as: a 15-metre swimming pool with plunge pool and horizon waterfall; a split-level deck with a thatched gazebo and bar; plus, changing rooms, showers and toilets. From the deck, guests can relax on the sun loungers, sip a sundowner at the bar or cool off in the turquoise water whilst looking out over the Zambezi National Park. Victoria Falls Safari Club is also strategically placed next to a small waterhole, often frequented by kudu, warthog and bushbuck, as well as various bird species, so even when guests are not on game drives, they can keep an eye out for their favourite animals. The refurbishment will also see improvements to the hotel’s public spaces, with larger areas for guests to relax in, and a new restaurant.
On this exciting refurbishment, Ross Kennedy said, “There has been a clear growth in demand for Victoria Falls as a destination, already witnessed in 2017 by an increase of over 25% in international arrivals […] So it is clear that all of us in the industry need to be reviewing quality, service, hospitality and the facilities and activities we offer in order to meet that demand. […] As a group, we also need to ensure we maintain our position in the market as one of Victoria Falls’ leading properties, and this development gives us additional leverage to encourage the high-end market to choose us”.
Victoria Falls Safari Club’s new facilities will ensure that every traveller has a comfortable and luxurious stay in Zimbabwe. In between daily morning and evening game drives, guests can unwind at the onsite Safari Health and Beauty Spa, choosing from a range of pampering treatments such as an African Full Body Massage or a Hot Stone Back & Neck Massage. End the evening soaking up stunning sunset views from the new deck or your private balcony, with a cocktail in hand.
Additional accommodation options from AAT in Zimbabwe include Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, voted Zimbabwe’s Best Safari Lodge for 21 consecutive years, and Lokuthula Lodges, an affordable option for guests wanting the freedom of a self-catered or B&B safari. Each of these properties are just 3km from the bustling town of Victoria Falls, making them a great base to explore the Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, which can be done independently, on a guided tour or by helicopter. Active types have plenty of other activities to keep them busy, including horse trails, river cruises, gorge swings and canoeing.
With a broad range of luxury accommodation to choose from, and new and improved facilities set to launch this spring, there has never been a better time to visit Zimbabwe, one of 2018’s most exciting destinations, with Africa Albida Tourism.
