Corridors Through Time - A History of the Victoria Falls Hotel

Originally established in 1904 The Victoria Falls Hotel is steeped in a rich and interesting history covering the growth of tourism to the Victoria Falls.

Fully illustrated with over 100 archive images and over 30 modern photographs, Corridors Through Time - a History of the Victoria Falls Hotel traces the story of the Hotel's development, from humble beginnings to luxury five-star elegance, from the arrival of the railway to the age of aviation, and from colonial administration to Independence.

"Over the long period of its operation the Hotel has taken on an identity of her own, ‘The Grand Old Lady of the Falls,’ matriarch of Zimbabwe’s tourism industry. She has had her ups, and downs, but from modest beginnings she has a matured into a global icon, ranked among the most famous hotels of the world... ‘Corridors Through Time’ is more than the history of a Hotel - it is the story of the development of modern tourism to the Victoria Falls through the twentieth century."
Karl Snater, General Manager, The Victoria Falls Hotel (2009-2011).
