Luxury Hotels and Resorts | Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas Official Site

Anantara Africa

Founded in 2001 with a single beachfront property in Thailand, Anantara has grown into one of the world’s foremost luxury hotel groups. The collection spans cosmopolitan cities, exotic tropical islands, desert sands, heritage destinations, uncharted beaches and contemporary resort destinations in Asia, the Middle East, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean and Africa.

Anantara revolves around the mantra of “Life is a Journey” filled with opportunities to seek the exceptional, encounter the new and widen your horizons. A stay at one of their properties is just one more chapter in a lifetime of travel and exploration and they intend to make it an extraordinary one.

Their thoughtfully designed luxury hotels and resorts provide windows into the genuine character of each destination. Inside and outside each property, travelers engage with the places, people and stories that make the destination like nowhere else in the world. Guests curate a lifetime of memories through personal experiences, as Anantara opens doors and enables journeys of adventure and indulgence.

Emerging Destinations represents three of Anantara’s destinations in sub-Saharan Africa:

Anantara Avani Victoria Falls Resort Victoria Falls, Zambia

Located inside Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, Avani Victoria Falls Resort offers free unlimited access to Africa’s legendary cascade. But there are plenty of other ways to while away your days at the resort.

  • Melt your worries away with a choice of essential beauty and health treatments at the Avani spa, where carefully trained professionals will have you relaxed, recharged and refreshed in no time.
  • Swim at what feels like the edge of the world in the Devil’s Pool. Look over the edge into the spray to see why they call the falls “the smoke that thunders.”
  • Take a cable car over Batoka Gorge after an exhilarating whitewater rafting experience. Fly across the breath-taking falls in a helicopter. Soar above the cascade in a microlight aircraft.
  • Step back in time and experience the majesty of the Zambezi River and gracious hospitality of a riverboat cruise.
  • Experience authentic Zambian village life as residents take you on an up-close journey, with unique insights into their lifestyle.

The Day Activity Desk at Avani Victoria Falls Resort can arrange all of these and more.
