The lodge combines both rooms and tents for accommodation. The well manicured lawns are also available for backpackers with their own tents. The bar overlooking the river Zambezi allows one to soak in the most beautiful sunsets. The lodge's location allowed us to comfortably book and take part in the various adventure activities around Victoria Falls and Livingstone at large.... More

For two nights we stayed at the Victoria Falls Waterfront Adventure Village Tents. I haven’t slept in a tent since camping as a child. Our tent had two single cots with a fan and a small table between them. Surprisingly, I had the best sleep of my life on that single cot. There were two communal washrooms in the Tent... More

Be aware of power outages in Zambia, all rooms has beautiful views of river or creek and resort was nice but bathrooms need and upgrade and some staff members need a attitude check. Overall we enjoyed our stay. When booking request a river view room as there is only 4 standard and 4 luxury. Beware of Mosquitos everywhere along the... More

The site had two swim pools and a great bar by the river. This resort is an excellent centre for doing many activities such as whitewater rafting, micro flights, and canoeing. A great bar and restaurant overlook the Zambezi River.

The stay was just fair. Sometimes lights went off. I also had to request for another fan as the one in the room was faulty. You could do well with Air conditioning. We had asked for an Airport pick up and the receptionist only saw our request after we had already arrived at the hotel!

In a town that is already very expensive, and where all activities are quoted in USD, the commonly accepted exchange rate for those businesses catering to budget travelers is $1 - k10 (used by taxis, hostels etc).
