About the book:

HarperCollins Publishers (Zimbabwe) [Published date: 2004]. Soft cover, 74 pp. [From front cover flap] The Victoria Falls Hotel is more than simply a hospitality establishment. It is an internationally-renowned institution that is one of the most important hotels in Zimbabwe, and indeed in Africa as a whole. It was also the catalyst for the creation and development of Victoria Falls town close to the world-famous tourist attraction that was named forQueen and Empire by Scots explorer and missionary David Livingstone. From the time it was opened as a corrugated iron construction in 1904 to the celebration of its centenary in 2004 it played host to huge numbers of visitors,including some of the world's rich and famous. Its story is one of determination and professionalism, reflecting the fortunes of the country in which it is found - once called Southern Rhodesia and now Zimbabwe. This history explains why the hotel has developed into the world-famous institution it has become and why its owners, management and staff are determined to maintain and even enhance that status in its second 100 years of operation.
