This is a great affordable option while staying in Victoria Falls. Easy walking distance to the falls and all of downtown. We soon discovered the on-premise restaurant that is absolutely fabulous and prices are much cheaper than in town! The rooms are fine, beds are a little firm but mosquito nets are in the rooms over each twin bed. The... More

In an area that sees it's fair share of mosquitoes, very surprised that a place like this doesn't provide nets in the dorms. I'm sure those that pay for the chalets & safari tents get nets, though. I think the dorms are primarily for school groups & locals, so they don't bother. Having said that, the dorm I was in... More

Our intrepid dragoman trip started here and we arrived a couple nights early. Communication with them prior to arrival via email was great and they arranged an airport transfer for us. We booked a room and then downgraded to a tent upon arrival. The place is very basic and you kind of get what you pay for. Food at restaurant... More

Nice camp ground located right in the city centre and about 10 minute walk to Vic Falls. I choose not to camp and upgrade to Villa style accommodation 2 rooms both with 2 beds and share bathroom and kitchen. Rooms are outdated and need improvement but it is a camping ground so I didn't expect much more so for 15... More

We stayed here as an alternative to Shoe String Backpackers, which is beyond terrible. The unit we stayed in $45 is believe it or not good value for the town. There is a pool by the bar/restaurant. The camping area is grassed and shady. The toilet/shower block is huge, so no waiting, but very utilitarian. Staff were friendly and helpful.... More

I would in general recommend this hotel for the following points : - it's cheap, which is really really good in Victoria falls (we paid 63$ for a 4 beds chalets). It's even cheaper that the backpackers, and the rooms are way better. - the chalets are simples, but clean, and spacious - Good localization - the toilets, and shower... More

We recently left Victoria Falls rest camp a couple of days ago and I have a couple of nice things and couple of rather bad things to say about it. My husband and I camped with a group that had some camping and some that had upgraded. The camping facilities were very good. The location was right downtown close to... More

A campside in the midle of the town. It's ok but not that special. They have a nice restaurant where you get a local beer for $2 abd if you like you can try some game meat. They habe pool what's nice to cool down on a hot day.

Let me start with the positives: - Great location. Easy walking distance to everything in town and to the falls. - Wifi not bad. You do have to pay and it is only available near the pool and the reception. - Security was on duty all the time. Felt safe. Now the negatives: - We stayed in a two bedroom... More
