DRIFT INN

At Drift Inn, discreetly set on the edge of the wilderness, three kilometres from the Victoria Falls – one of the seven wonders of the world – we celebrate and commemorate the Africa that made Hemingway happy.  At Drift Inn, we’ll wind back the clock for you, to a simpler, less complicated time.  
And that’s before (or after) you’ve done what you came to Victoria Falls to do, like walk in the rainforest, or take a sunset cruise on the Zambezi, or listen to a talk on David Livingstone… the list is endless.   It’s about you… so we’ll arrange it for you.

IN-HOUSE ACTIVITIES

 

MASSAGE AND REFLEXOLOGY:

At Drift Inn we have a Wellness Spa dedicated to massage, reflexology and beauty therapy, run by Sibu, a trained beautician and masseuse, and a passionate advocate of her trade. As well as catering for the needs of tourists and locals in Victoria Falls, she is introducing her craft to the local tribal community.

COFFEE HUB:

At Drift Inn we began the Victoria Falls Coffee Company, where – using beans from a farm in the Chimanimani district of the eastern highlands of Zimbabwe – we roast and blend our own coffee. They used to grow 700ha of coffee at Smaldeel Farm, now down to just 6ha – for Drift Inn and one or two other discerning customers.

Cozy, kind, 24hrs coffee and tee, Binting(? I don’t know whether I put it correctly or not,), etc. Anyways, there are plenty of reasons that I have to recommend this accomodation. Thank you for your hospitality and take care until I see you again ever.

This homely inn is warm + welcoming from the moment you walk through the leafy front gate. Comfortable beds, hot showers, delicious breakfasts, shady areas to relax and common areas to mingle with guests. The team are incredibly friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend!

For a good snooze for your tired body. Comfortable, clean room with good bed. Can give your laundry for a reasonable fee, same day returned. Delicious breakfast. All day free tea + coffee at Lounge. Cozy lodge, homely. Opposite Zambezi NP, beautiful garden to sit and relax. Welcoming staff, felt safe. Can mingle with other travellers. Will stay again if I visit Victoria Falls.
