About jeanette Lindstrom

Owner is a well known safari legend who still travels to Tanzania, Namibia, Zambia, Botswana and South Africa with friends and clients over the past 40 years.

He grew up in Kenya and worked and became a director of the Kerr and Downey Safari company, and then trans-located to northern Botswana to start his own safari business. A Very shy and quiet man who loves nature and has varied interests. He loves to collect sculptures, bronzes and artwork from artists around Africa.

He feels that the house needs people to be in it and as he still travels on safari the house often is empty for months on end.

jeanette Lindstrom purchased this house in 2001

Why jeanette Lindstrom chose Victoria Falls

This house borders on the National Park where there are many passing elephant on a daily basis. It has a comfortable size pool and the gardens 2 acres - big and rolling.

When the falls are in flood the spray from them - come down to the house in a fine spray - keeping the garden moist and watered. The house has a quiet and healing atmosphere to it.

Each room has its own veranda to relax and contemplate how the day has gone - or gather around the pub - and share and compare the day's activities.

What makes this house unique

Sirlson House is a home - furnished for comfort and space of 430 square metres. Plenty of space with three lounges to spread yourself and your family/friends around. The home backs onto the national park - so often elephants walk past and many times we see buffalo at the back gate. Warthog are often grazing on the front lawn and all animals live peacefully with the residents of Victoria Falls.

Property was very clean and spacious, however wifi was really spotty and the pool was green

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice, had so much room and the owners were pretty responsive. Our only issues were with the fact that the pool was green and the wifi didn't work about 80% of the time.

all to feel good

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Jeannette Lindstom and Gary to make us feel at home and to help us to enjoy the place and fing a solution to any problem we could find as booking a transfert to Boma restorant or reaching the Zambia border for Microlight flights or going to the crocodile farm.

Relaxing in the pool is a good way after adrenalin activities.

We were a family of four and 5 adults, friends for so long and it was a pleasure not to be in a restaurant at every lunch and dinner.

we were three nights there and it was nice to have the breakfast all together and to plan everything and not to be in a hurry

And to have a return transfert to the airport specially customised, with a stop to the supermarket to shop a little.

Located within 10 mins drive of the Mighty Victoria Falls, horseback riding adjacent to the property and into the National Park. Often elephant are seen walking next to the wall into town or returning.

The High Tea at Victoria Falls at 4.00 pm is a must for all those that love being spoilt and return to a gone era . Take time to walk the corridors of the hotel to see the pictures, books and paintings.

For adrenalin seekers there is White water rafting, zip lining, bungee jumping.

For less adventurous - Elephant Back riding, boat cruises, helicopter ride over the Falls

For the outdoor types - wine route in canoes, Hwange National Park 2 hours away, Victoria Falls Park 10 minutes drive, fishing available and can book with our office on the property. Chobe National Park is 1 hours drive from the house and 120,000 elephants cant be wrong - biggest concentration in the world of elephants.

For foodies - the Thai restaurant at Elephant Walk is a must. or Elephant Walk's coffee shop. Mama Africa for traditional cultural food. A must is the Boma Restaurants - bookings essential. Wide variety of game meat, entertainment the whole evening with drummers, fortune telling, a fantastic cultural experience.
