Let me start by noting that the staff at Adventure Lodge were helpful, friendly and nice. No complaints there, though I had to wait 15 minutes in the lobby before someone came to check me in and give me my room key on arrival. The breakfast is fine and the rooms clean enough. Location is not bad either, as you... More

I was staying here with my sister due to a last minute decision. We originally planned to stay in a different lodge outside Vic Falls, but changed our minds for different reasons. Well, the place is clean & fairly priced. They offer good, cheap drinks & meals in the bar area. They even have a small pool if you want... More

I was a volunteer in Victoria Falls in August and September last year and stayed at the Adventure Lodge. The rooms were big enough for 2 of us to stay in and loads of cupboard space to put all of our things. The room also had a fan which made sleeping so much comfier as they kept the room cool... More

excellent value for money - clean and good place to book all you Vic Falls activities - rafting, bungee jumping etc. Rooms are snug but good for a sleep. Drink heavily and you won't notice. Food is good and cheap - beers always cold and nice bar area and swimming pool.

As the title suggests, we had an absolute gem of a time! Rooms were just perfect for those wishing to get out and experience the falls - not to mention all the activities one can partake in around them! The management and staff were very friendly and very helpful; all was organised without hassle or fuss. Great atmosphere and a... More

This is my second visit to Victoria Falls. I decided I wanted to stay where my overland tour ended and be closer to town. It is a no frills accommodation, just a short walk from town. Reasonably priced with helpful staff who will help you book your activities. Breakfast was ok - you can only choose one item from the... More

We stayed here as part of a trip through Southern Africa. It was in fact the last two nights. This is no way to end a trip. The rooms were about 8-9 ft in each direction. There is no room to put anything, other than on your bed. There wasn't even a glass to use in the bathroom. The interior... More

Thank you for your review, we actually have 10 rooms which have AC, and during the heat of October I fully understand that the standard rooms would be uncomfortable, we have recently upgraded all the fans in the rooms as the old ones could not produce any breeze at all. Our rooms are very small and that is why our... More

Adventure lodge isn't all that special, but accommodation in Vic Falls tends to be pretty expensive. The staff are generally friendly, there is free wifi (if you can get anything to load!), meals are decent price and it is an easy walk into town. The town itself felt very safe during the day, with tourist police everywhere to watch out... More

Before I booked at your, I did my own research. Now I was at your lodge physically myself and my family. I realised that some of the reviews were not fair to be honest enough. I found Adventure lodge to be a better place to stay and it worth your money as a budget lodge. Although some few areas need... More
