I stayed for one night while waiting for other accommodations to become available. Rented a small block house with two bedrooms, baths and equipped kitchen. The place was basic, but clean. No frills. The property was quite large and in the center of Vic falls. It had a campground feel. Think camping/backpacking. Restaurant service and food were fine. Pool was clean as well as the grounds. I would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for low price accommodations.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, Get a bungalow away from the restaurant. They have live music at night.

I recently stayed here for one night, in the lodge / house with no facilities (and a second night camping). The room was basic, with two beds, desk, chair and fan, but the price was fair for what you got. The shower and toilet facilities were very clean and not very busy at any time. The electricity in the area is unreliable, but that is just how it is. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the pool area is very nice. The campsite is close walking distance to the town and restaurants, and to the Falls. Although you can also taxi it, if its too hot and you are not yet acclimatised. All in all, the price was fair for the room, the staff were friendly and the facilities were clean.The campsite is guarded and expect to see wild animals in the area as the town is in a national park.

We stayed here twice and both times really enjoyed it. We had a chalet with bathroom and kitchen, everything we needed and very clean but basic which was fine with us. Option of self catering or the on site restaurant which had a good range of food and was a great place to relax. Lodge is very central to the town and within easy walking distance of Victoria Falls. Wifi only available at the restaurant and at times was very slow, Would definitely stay here again.

This place exceeded our expectations. We stayed 4 nights in a chalet. (We spent our entire stay singing “Everything is beautiful at the chalet”, and you’re welcome for the ear worm musical theater nerds). The room was basic but large with two twin beds. There was a fan and mosquito nets, but we didn’t need to use either at this time of year. There was also a small dresser and a table with two chairs. It isn’t a space for hanging out in, but it served its purpose. There were two sets of bathrooms equidistant from our chalet that had both toilets and showers. The ones nearest the restaurant had two showers with anterooms which were useful so we used those ones. The temperature controls on the showers were temperamental and you’d often go from freezing to scalding and vice versa, but it never did run out of hot water which was good. There are tents set up for less money, and rooms with bathrooms attached for more. We were happy with our choice. The location is great right off the main strip. Easy to walk to the Falls. Lots of touts who want to sell you stuff, but they aren’t too pushy once they see you really aren’t interested. There is wifi, but good luck using it. The signal is strongest around the restaurant, but even there it was often unusable. There was always a sizable group sitting around the pool on their phone with frustrated looks on their faces. Even early in the morning when there weren’t many people it wasn’t much better. The front desk were very pleasant, though we didn’t interact with them much. But they set up airport transfers for us, and helped arrange a load of laundry with housekeeping. They sell water and snacks but at inflated prices. They did point us to the local “OK” grocery store up the street. Prices there are in the local currency, but when you get to the cashier there is a big sign on the wall to convert it into USD (and a few other currencies). It’s not the best rate and they did not give us change, but it was still a great deal. We got water and snacks, a loaf of bread and peanut butter, all of which helped us save a lot of money since everything in Vic Falls is so comparatively expensive. We did eat one meal at the “In-da-Belly” restaurant on the property, you can see my separate review. It felt pricey but the food was good and well-presented, and is a good option if you don’t want to walk around town. One thing to remember about Vic Falls, is that there are wild animals that live here too. The property is surrounded by an electrified fence, which does little to keep the vervet monkeys and baboons out. But one night we were sitting by the pool near the fence and were could hear things moving around in the dark. We followed the fence down a way and were astonished to see a small group of very large elephants wandering by eating the vegetation. It was both a little scary and totally amazing. Walking around town you will most likely see warthogs, water buck, and definitely more baboons, but we were told the big 5 were all in the area. If we return to Vic Falls I would stay here again. There are much nicer places to stay if you want to spend the money, but we were quite comfortable here, and I would stay here again.

We stayed 3 nights in May 2019, the location is great as it’s right in the village so you can walk to the centre and back with no need of a taxi during dark hours. We took a room with the toilets facilities outside and it must be said the toilets were absolutely spotless clean. Pity the rooms are so poorly kept. There were only two beds, an old table and two horrible chairs. Nothing else in the rooms. You have to pay a returnable $10 fare for the bath towel. Very nice the area around the pool and the internal restaurant In- da belly which serves really good food. I would suggest to renovate the rooms a little in order to make the place nicer and more appealing.

Hi there, thanks for your honest review. We are happy you found our public facilities clean and you managed to enjoy our great pool area and our onsite restaurant. Thanks for your suggestions on the chalet revamp, we are in the process of renovating the lodges and once this is complete we will be moving onto the chalets. We do enjoy such prime location, having the whole town at walking distance, we hope you will return one day and see what work we have done to the place. Kind regards
