We camped here for 1 night in January. The camping area is nice and there was plenty of space even though there were several overland groups in the park. Showers were of a good quality with lots of hot water and water pressure, only downside was that the shower curtains were rather see through, so not much privacy. Laundry area... More

Having been to the falls many times I have always driven by this campsite but never stayed. This year I was forced to book here as I couldn't get any other accommodation between Christmas and new year. I was pleasantly surprised, accommodation was basic but clean and comfortable and extremely well priced for Vic Falls. Nice pool, good restaurant/café. Great... More

Great location. Self catering facilities were ok. Rooms were clean but there was a large hole in the ceiling through which an animal entered the lodge. It samples some of our food and generally made a mess. Location was great as it was walking distance from shops and restaurants. Enjoyed our stay and will stay again.

We stayed here in January as our first stop in Zimbabwe. We were in a 4x4 with roof tents, so didn't stay in any of the chalets or lodges. The campsite was pretty quiet at the time, so we had loads of space but the spaces generally seemed to be a pretty good size anyway. The ablutions blocks were pretty... More

We camped here for 3 nights in January and had a great stay. The camping area is very nice and there was plenty of space and a good area for doing laundry. The ablutions were clean and there are plenty of showers with no shortage of hot water. The staff were helpful- in particular around the camp and they were... More

I was joining an overland truck here, so I checked into the dorm one night before I joined the truck. The price for one night in the dorm was 20$ USD, I had just stayed 3 nights at Fawlty Towers in Livningstone for 28$ USD. The people at the front desk were rather unhelpful, and disorganized. I would not be... More

We stayed in the dorm. We chose this place after checking out shoestring which is not far from here because we did not feel like the party atmosphere. What we got was exactly what we wanted. A nice relaxed stay with a swimming pool and a great town at walking distance, also Victoria Falls at walking distance. If we wanted... More

I stayed here in my own tent over new year and was very impressed, comparing the camp to others I've stayed at in the UK. Pros: 1. Clean facilities with toilet paper always stocked 2. Nice restaurant and pool area 3. Friendly staff delivering good service 4. Onsite activity booking and pick-up service 5. Lockers available - bring your own... More

This property is centrally located with easy access to all the attractions and amenities. In spite of the large numbers of people using the facilities, communal ablutions were clean and well maintained. Accommodation is basic but well priced. Expect to find an eclectic mix of Adventure travellers from around the world all looking to enjoy the sights and activities that... More

We stayed 2 nights in the tents - 2 single beds. I'ts good if you're looking for saving up some money. Ablutions are alright. Staff is nice. 20 minutes walking to the VF park. You can book activities through the hotel, I'd recommend helicopter & rafting. (boat cruise isn't worth it)
