Great location
The location was amazing. The first room we went and had little bugs on the dresser. We switch to another room. The second room had no bugs But the shower stall looked to be worn out giving the overall store a nasty look. Staff was very accommodating. We broke a glass at about 10 o'clock at night and they came and vacuumed. Breakfast was good, dinner was average.Saw zebras , giraffes, and monkeys on the grounds. It was a lot of fun.

Knocking on Victoria Falls' door
Our stay at Avani over Valentine's Day was great. The hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The fact that it's at the door of Victoria Falls is just great. One can hear the falls' fury from the room and from the property grounds. Live music, great pool, delicious food and drinks. The funny monkeys in the morning and the guards chasing them away from the bar area is so cool to see... Very funny seeing the guards running after the monkeys but they never even get close. LOL What really made our stay though is the warm, friendly staff of the hotel. The bed comfort, the small sofa in the room and TV programming can improve though.

Great potential with some spiffing up
This is a beautiful hotel that just needs a good manager to tell the staff to clean up the zebra droppings off the lawn, rake the dead branches and leaves, get the breakfast area open and running on time, pick up the room service plates the same day they're left, etc. It's a gorgeous hotel and room and its sister hotel (Livingstone) next door is even better. Note: you can use their services while staying at the cheaper Avani. The pool area is very pretty and little used and there are extensive grounds for walking. Plus the Zambia side of Vic Falls is nearby and there's no entrance fee for hotel guests (it's $30pp on the Zimbabwe side). Lots of animals wander the grounds and, oddly, there are hotel employees with leaf blowers, Segways, electric carts everywhere.

Disappointing Security
The hotel is right next to the entrance to the Zambia side of Victoria Falls and includes entry to the park. Decent amenities at the resort, but it could use another restaurant and a fitness center. The activity desk is efficient at setting up various activities in the area. The security services were a disappointment. The hotel tells the guests to keep a distance from the animals and not harass them. On two separate occasions, the security staff did not stop guests from chasing animals with remote controlled vehicles. The second time, two security members were watching the person interact with the impala using a quad copter.

Perfect hotel to visit Victoria Falls
I had a pleasant stay. The Victoria Falls are right outside the resort so it's perfect for sightseeing. Zebras and Impalas are found roaming on the lawns.
