We stayed at Batonka Guest Lodge during our time in Zimbabwe. Our travel agent, who is from Vic Falls, booked us at this hotel. I always think that the best recommendations come from locals and he didn't let us down! The facilities and staff were amazing. It's a newer lodge and has a fun book documenting the construction process near the front desk. We went on a couple of excursions while at Batonka through outside companies. They also picked up guests at neighboring lodges. I'd say, without hesitation, that our lodge was by far the best. Highly recommend!

Our travel agent in Cape Town booked this for us. Wow. An absolutely stunning place. Spacious rooms, attention to detail and decoration, second to none. The restaurant, equally good, serving a choice of high quality, well presented food every night, with accompanying wines. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. A gorgeous pool to relax in at the end of the day. A perfect choice for a stay in Victoria Falls. Thank you.

This stay was arranged for us and we were very pleased. Accommodations, meals and hospitality were excellent. Recommendations for sites to see and places to visit were great. Quiet and secure yet close to things of interest. Enjoyed relaxing at their bar after a busy day.
