The Palm River Hotel

The Palm River Hotel was offers unparalleled luxury accommodation without compromising a sense of home comfort, situated along the banks of the iconic Zambezi River, among towering indigenous trees and only 2.4 miles from Africa’s Natural World Wonder, Victoria Falls – so close, in fact, that on a clear, quiet day you can hear the thunder and see the spray of the mighty waterfall from your room. The innovative blend of traditional East-Coast Australian design and the unique landscape of the upper Zambezi River has resulted in a brand new and distinctive landmark for Victoria Falls. A hotel that is aesthetic and functional, modern and timeless, cosmopolitan and perfectly suited to the local environment. Enjoy a fusion fare within the hotel’s grand dining hall, encompassed by tall ceilings, classic parquet flooring and large sliding doors that open out onto an idyllic riverfront vista. The dining hall flows onto a veranda space and onto an al fresco dining area, sheltered by tall ceilings that merge with the canopy of trees. The refreshing and airy dining spaces are complemented by sweeping garden views framed by cobbled pathways leading directly down to the Zambezi River beyond.
