When visiting the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls, The Victoria Falls Hotel is one of those iconic places you have to see. Everything about the decor will transport you back to the days of Stanley and Livingstone. The hallways of the hotel are lined with framed vintage photographs and antique travel posters. While it has been refurbished with modern amenities, it still holds true to its original Edwardian style.
If you truly wish to feel like visiting royalty, I recommend staying overnight. But, if it's just not possible to fit an overnight stay in your budget, you can visit for a casual meal or a drink at Stanley's Room. I tried their chicken mayo sandwich and sipped a fresh mint lemonade while on the patio overlooking the back lawn, seen here. The view out to the Rainbow Bridge was spectacular. I can't think of a better way to re-fuel after a hot morning exploring the Falls.
