The first purpose-built spa in Victoria Falls is scheduled to open in October 2022, adding a wellness destination to Zimbabwe’s top tourist attraction.

Construction of Victoria Falls Safari Spa resumed in April 2022, 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 located along a north-facing ridge 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, and three outlying separate secluded treatment rooms.

Africa Albida Tourism (AAT) Chief Executive Ross Kennedy said this is an incredibly exciting development in light of an unexpected speedy recovery of the tourism industry.

‘For two years we have had to look at the foundations that we started in March 2020 and to now see the contractors back on site and the project becoming a reality once more is a testament to the tourism recovery we are witnessing and contributing to,’ Kennedy said.

‘The health and wellness market is rapidly growing and we believe that Victoria Falls Safari Spa will allow us to fully enter this market. The layout and design allow us to add further treatments and therapies in the future.’

The design, decor and treatment menu of the spa will reflect the majestic surrounds. Additionally, the spa will use use all-natural African products with plant-based ingredients.
