Our move to Victoria Falls Safari Club involved a brief walk within the property. We checked in though before we left for the day.
The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge staff in the meantime moved our luggage into our new room at the Club while we were gallivanting around town. When we returned in the afternoon, Zebulon welcomed us as if we were family.
He offered us a welcome drink as he sat us down in the lounge and gave us some vital information about our stay at The Club. The place was well decorated with detailed pieces I would gladly take home if they let us. Before we left for our room, Zebulon confirmed our dinner reservation that night for the Boma. We were really looking forward to that experience and Zeb, as he liked to be called, informed us that the Boma courtesy bus would pick us later that night for dinner.
Zeb walked us to our room while he explained and shared more information about The Club. Construction of Victoria Falls Safari Club commenced in 2011 and they opened their doors to guests in August 2012. Our room was beautiful. I was in love with the detail in particular and the fact that this property was set on this plateau with the picturesque views we had!
I could tell great thought; investment and planning went into the entire set up. Never mind the complimentary Wi-Fi or the complimentary mini bar in the room, but we also had a complimentary cocktail and snacks every evening before dinner. That definitely put a smile on the wife’s face.
We settled into our room fairly quickly and relaxed while we waited for the sun to set. We soaked up the last rays of the sunshine, reflected on the day we just had as we patiently waited for the Boma. Before we left for dinner, we went the Club Lounge to indulge in the cocktail drinks and snacks. Zeb made our drinks while we watched and chatted with him.
We also met a few of the other guests and exchanged notes on our Club experiences. It seemed we were all first timers at The Club and we were enjoying it. The Boma courtesy bus turned up and we all left for dinner. The Boma Experience is a must for anyone visiting Victoria Falls – it’s that simple really!
As with the previous we night, we thoroughly enjoyed dinner but this time we woke up and made our way to breakfast earlier. Breakfast was served in the lounge or deck area depending on the guests’ preference. We chose to sit in the lounge as I gazed across the landscape trying very hard to take in the last couple of hours of our stay.
We were really going to miss this place and the whole experience. As we ate our breakfast, we discussed how great it would be to return during the wet season just to see how different the view and property would be. We finished breakfast, returned to our room to pack and eventually checked out. However before we checked out, I took a short walk around The Club in my attempt to absorb this place, the sun and prepare for our goodbye.
