The Victoria Falls Hotel is considered by some to one of the world’s Classic five-star hotels. Built in 1904 for railway workers, who were to construct Rhodes’s dream of a Cape to Cairo Railway, and the first bridge across the Zambezi River.

The Victoria Falls Hotel was built and operated by the railways administration, but in the early 1970s it was leased to the then Southern Sun hotel group, forerunner of today's African Sun Limited. A significant development in the late 1990s was the involvement in the hotel of another leading Zimbabwean hospitality operation, Meikles Africa Hotels. Today the property itself still belongs to the National Railways of Zimbabwe and there is a shared 50/50 partnership operation between African Sun and Meikles Africa.
