We enjoyed staying at the rest camp for the second time and find it to be basic but clean. The price was reasonable, you can book all your activities from Oscar in reception and there is a great, affordable restaurant. I felt that it was more of an African experience than a western hotel.

Needed a no frills place for my production team out on a recon mission and job. Rest camp was surprisingly comfy with mosquito nets, showers were hot but no pressure but managed to shower. Friendly staff. Very reasonable on a low budget.

Neat and low cost, about $45 per night for a basic chalet that has two single beds and 2 chairs, table. Electric socket for charging things. Basic but very clean and tidy. A short walk to the ablutions, 30m. And the water was really hot for showers etc. There is a swiiming pool - but it was very cold at... More

The Huts have just beds with linen, some wooden chairs and a table. All cheapest quality. Toilet and bathroom are outside together with the camping people. Location is great, in the vic fall center. Staff helps with tours, cars can be taken to the huts, the area is guarded.

We have stayed here on several occasions, both in the chalets (simple but adequate and clean) and in the larger lodges (very good for a larger group--you basically have your own house). The Victoria Falls Hotel is fancier, but this gives you more space for certain, and is a WHOLE lot cheaper. Secure, too--there is a security gate, and when... More

We had a lovely 3 night stay in one of the 6 person lodges. I had friends visiting from university so we were on a student budget and rest camp was perfect. Our lodge had a kitchen which was great and we prepared all our own meals. The staff were lovely and really helpful, it was also useful being able... More

I spent a few nights in one of the single chalets. The accommodation is very basic, but spacious and spotless. The shared ablutions are also clean and the shower is hot. I can recommend the Rest Camp chalet for anyone looking for a simple budget accomodation in Vic Falls. The location is great, right in town centre!

We had come from another backpackers place down the road because it was awfully dirty and we were so happy to arrive! They showed us a tent with beds and a chalet (both you used a shared bathroom and showers (but they were in stalls and clean and private with nice hot water). We chose the chalet for $40 a... More

With a great central location you can walk into town to go and book your activities if you are not booking them through the activities desk. If you are on a budget the price is very good. Stayed there with my family for 4 days. The restaurant "In Da Belly" is average with local entertainment. We stayed in a self... More

Without pretentions this restcamp has functional chalets and bungalows, close to the Falls. The staff at the reception is great. The restaurant is OK, not more than that. As everything is overpriced in Vic Falls, this camp is decently rated. I always start my Vic Falls -> Cape Town cycling tours over here, its spaciousness definitely working in its favour.
