Old Ursula Camp is an intimate, private retreat located on the magnificent Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve next to the 5 Star Stanley & Livingstone Hotel – a mere 10 minutes from the Victoria Falls
Old Ursula encompasses four classic African-style chalets. The thatched A-frame units can accommodate eight guests in total, two per unit, and each boasts an en-suite bathroom. This includes a master chalet with double bedroom and lounge area.
The chalets and guest area are decorated in elegant Old-World style, dominated by wood and antique furniture. While Old Ursula is not quite 5-star accommodation like its adjacent sister hotel – The Stanley and Livingstone at Victoria Falls, the camp exudes immense character and a rustic elegance. Guests are treated to delicious, freshly-prepared meals at the camp, which offers a full board catering option.
Perfectly suited to families and small groups looking to book the entire camp, Old Ursula is the ideal base from which to explore the many fascinating sites of Victoria Falls and surrounds. Guest can laze around the camp’s private swimming pool or venture out to view black rhino as well as partake in thrilling activities such as white water rafting or bungee jumping over the magnificent Victoria Falls.
Old Ursula located in the Victoria Falls Private Game Reserves offers guests the opportunity to experience unique activities hosted on the reserve; such as lion walks, night game drives, bush dinners and interactive elephants-back safaris. Make a separate booking for Activities

The Victoria Falls are the most significant feature of the Victoria Falls National Park, and when the Zambezi is in full flood (usually February or March) they form the largest curtain of falling water in the world. During these months, over 500 million litres of water per minute go over the falls, which are 1708m wide, and drop 99m at Rainbow Falls in Zambia.
At low water in November the flow can be reduced to around 10 million litres/minute, and the river is divided into a series of braided channels that descend in many separate falls. Below the falls the river enters a narrow series of gorges which represent locations successively occupied by the falls earlier in their history.
Since the uplifting of the Makgadikgadi Pan area some two million years ago, the Zambezi River has been cutting through the basalt, exploiting weak fissures, and forming a series of retreating gorges. Seven previous waterfalls occupied the seven gorges below the present falls, and Devil’s Cataract in Zimbabwe is the starting point for cutting back to a new waterfall that will eventually leave the present lip high above the river in the gorge below.
Vic Falls attract many ‘extreme’ sports lovers; bungee jumping off the Zambezi Bridge, white water rafting and body boarding are just a few options available.
Less adventurous visitors will enjoy walking through the National Park, where there are excellent viewing points. The spectacular views that can be obtained by taking a helicopter or light aircraft ‘flight of the angels’ are unforgettable!
The Zimbabwean Town of Victoria Falls in is a vibrant ‘Tourist’ destination with numerous shops, activities, casino and nightlife. The recent political troubles in Zimbabwe have not seriously affected life, other than making incidental expenditure remarkably cheap!
