Hotel Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The first designs for the next reconstruction of the hotel were supplied by railway engineer Sir Charles Herbert Theophilus Metcalfe (1853-1928), but the actual building erected in 1912 was designed by Frank Scott (1868-1923). Sir Charles Metcalf was a close personal friend of Cecil Rhodes (1853-1902).
