Africa Albida is thrilled to announce that they are building Victoria Falls’ largest and first purpose-built spa, which is scheduled to open in October, and is set to place Zimbabwe’s top tourist attraction on the map as a wellness destination.

This development, to be named Victoria Falls Safari Spa, comes as Victoria Falls is experiencing a much more rapid resurgence of tourism post-covid than expected.

Construction resumed last month, following a two-year delay due to the uncertainties around the impact of Covid-19 on travel and tourism. It had originally been scheduled to open in September 2020.  

The spa will be nestled along a north-facing ridge in indigenous woodland in a tranquil setting on the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge estate. It will be built in harmony with its surrounds, under canvas, reminiscent of African safari tents and filled with ethnic fabrics and artefacts. 

It will include a 280m2 central area featuring manicure and pedicure stations, private relaxation rooms, a café serving healthy dishes, a hair salon and change rooms, including one that is wheelchair-friendly, as well as three outlying separate secluded treatment rooms (one double and two singles).
