the bunkhouses are only $9 night and located very close to the bar, which plays very loud music. great budget accommodation, though, and they helped us plan all of our activities! the bar is fun, too, and good location in that it's easy to walk everywhere.

This place was a welcome relief after 3 weeks on a camping tour! Lovely big room with an extremely comfortable bed and mosquito netting. The manager Bev is very helpful and made us feel welcome. The walk into town is approx 15mins. If walking is not your style, a cab can be called and costs around $US4-5. Breakfast is provided....and... More

It was part of the tour I took with Drifter's and I had no choice but to stay here. Of course any bed is better than a tent but it is unfortunate Drifter's does not update this place. It does not have to be this bad. It is old and falling apart. But this ugly girl can't even get make-up.... More

We did a Southern Africa trip in December of 2012 and stayed at this lodge in the middle of the trip. The manager was incredibly rude to everyone on the trip with us, she treated us like we were an imposition to her by staying at the lodge. Overall we were very disappointed in all of the Drifter's managers throughout... More

After our trip we took an extension to the Victoria Falls, were we also stayed in the drifters lodge, this was one of the least good drifters lodges we stayed at. The room... More

Due to elephants in town, (we didn't see any) u can't walk after dark. Good place to stay for a comfy, homely stay. ( no other meals avail other than breaky). Laundry service good,... More

We stopped here during our Cape Town - Vic Falls - Johannesburg tour with Drifters and after camping it is always nice to sleep in a comfy bed. The mosquitonets were a definite plus because we needed them during our stay. We had a twin room with sharing bathroom and i was quite happy with that. Food was average, honestly... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on our Driftest Southern Circle tour. Room was nice and clean with mosquito net and a lockable box ( you need your own lock, but anyway). Nice bathroom with hot shower. Walk to the city took 10 minutes. Manager was friendly and breakfast great. One night we had a braai (barbecue) by the pool... More

We stayed before and after our safari trip in Vic Falls. The place grows on you. Our room (No 5) was clean with good mosquito net. We also got a bath - I think its the only one with a bath. The chef cooks a good breakfast (bacon and eggs). The manager Bev is very helpful and gave us a... More

We were on a Drifters camping safari from Joburg up through Botswana (brilliant fun by the way!) that ended up at their Inn in Vic Falls. As Brits we were a bit unsure how Zimbabwe would welcome us. Nae worries, they were great. The place is safe enough (a few more street hassles than over the Falls on the Zambian... More
