Palm River Hotel
Palm River Hotel on the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe

The Palm River Hotel offers 73 luxury rooms along the banks of the iconic Zambezi River, among towering indigenous trees and only 4 kilometres from Africa’s Natural World Wonder, Victoria Falls.

This 5-star family-run hotel introduces a new dimension of luxury without compromising a sense of home comfort. Vast and unimpeded views of the Zambezi River are complimented by surrounding indigenous flora that encompasses a tranquil, peaceful, and private sanctuary.

Guests may enjoy many activities on offer within the historical town of Victoria Falls or soak in the magic of the Zambezi River and the abundant wildlife that inhabits the popular destination.

Inspired by the Queenslander, a traditional East-Coast Australian design style, the Palm River hotel provides guests with every modern convenience to make their stay as comfortable as possible while maintaining the old-world charm that is the essence of Victoria Falls. The innovative blend of the traditional Queenslander style and the unique landscape of the upper Zambezi River has resulted in a brand new and distinctive landmark for Victoria Falls.
