Zambezi Sun, Victoria Falls, ZambiaThe Zambezi Sun is a 212-room hotel appealing primarily to families and conference delegates.

The resort is situated in the 46-hectare Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Wildlife Park, which fringes the Zambezi River. Victoria Falls is recognised as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
