Zimbabwe Hotels Victoria Falls
|HOTEL DESCRIPTION||ACCOMMODATION||HOTEL FACILITIES & AMENITIES|
The Elephant Hills Resort boasts an 18-hole championship golf course designed by the legendary Gary Player. It is as popular with the wildlife as it is with golfers, as it is not uncommon for play to be interrupted while buck, warthogs or elephants exercise their right to walk on the fairways. Many golfing guests see this as an added bonus and, of course, it makes for great banter over a drink afterwards. Nowhere in the world is there such an experience for golfers as that at the Elephant Hills Resort in Victoria Falls.
This environmentally correctly-positioned luxury hilltop hotel, with its great solid structure, is sited by a trail that has seen the passage of countless elephants over thousands of years. It deliberately imposes itself on the surrounding riverine bush. Its tranquil evergreen setting on the upper Zambezi River belies the might of the Victoria Falls just three kilometres away.
Elephant Hills Resort is one of three ISO-accredited hotels in Zimbabwe (the other two being its sister hotels, The Kingdom At Victoria Falls and The Victoria Falls Hotel.) which ensures our guests will receive an unforgettable leisure experience.
This majestic hotel, aptly named after the gentle giant of the bush (the elephant) merges seamlessly into its natural environment. Elephant Hills Resort has 276 rooms ranging from the impressive presidential suite to cool and spacious standard rooms. All rooms are ethnically decorated creating a combination of African ambience with comfort and elegance.
Each bedroom has modern amenities including air-conditioning, digital satellite television, bar fridge and en-suite bathroom.

From the east wing guests are treated to views of the impressive golf course in the forefront and the Zambezi in the distance.
