Africa Albida Tourism announces Major Upgrades to its PropertiesBy Africa Albida Tourism
The exclusive Victoria Falls Safari Club in Zimbabwe and the luxurious Ngoma Safari Lodge in Botswana are set to undergo major upgrades, Africa Albida Tourism chief executive Ross Kennedy says.
The projects, to be completed by early next year, include the addition of a boutique restaurant and horizon swimming pool to Victoria Falls Safari Club, while four new suites will be built at Ngoma Safari Lodge, bringing the total to 12, Mr Kennedy said.
The Safari Club upgrade will include the expansion of the existing lounge, which will also be fitted with plush soft furnishings, allowing guests to enjoy a personalized butler service, complimentary snacks, and spectacular views of the resort’s central waterhole and wildlife-rich plains in comfort.
Beneath the Club lounge and deck, a boutique restaurant and kitchen will serve a continental breakfast with an assortment of fresh fruit, pastries, cereals, breads, cheeses and meats as well as cooked options, light, modern lunch dishes, and a tasting menu style dinner.
An horizon swimming pool and deck, facing the waterhole, will be built at a slightly lower level, for guests of the premium 20-room Victoria Falls Safari Club, located just 4km from one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
Work is scheduled to commence in November 2015, break for the festive season, and be completed by the end of February next year, Mr Kennedy said.
Ngoma Safari Lodge in Chobe, Botswana, will have four new luxury suites, bringing the total to 12, and the size of the central area’s lounge and bar will be doubled to accommodate the extra guests.
The upgrade, which is planned for the first three-months of 2016, will also include new soft furnishings added to both the central area and the suites, and all of the bathrooms will be re-tiled.
Zimbabwe-owned hospitality group Africa Albida Tourism operates hotels and restaurants in Victoria Falls and Chobe, Botswana, including its flagship property, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge.
