A lovely lodge with great staff and clean rooms. A certain British airline had lost our luggage and although it was not their responsibility, the staff at Bayete were very helpful in locating. The rest of the services - breakfast, the bar and a late dinner kept warm for us on arrival made this a place I would return to again!

Property's Favorite Review
The folks at Bayete were super helpful in every way as I planned my solo trip to Victoria Falls. They reached out weeks before my trip to suggest and set any tours before they filled up and were super responsive to arranging the best experience for me! They were understanding of my needs as a solo female traveler and made sure that I was on tours with others. They arranged a sunset cruise on the Zambezi and a game drive at Chobe in Botswana, and advised me on my fabulous day at the Falls, making sure that I was comfortable throughout. I really appreciated the personal touch and chats with the staff. Also very, very clean and the food was top notch. I was in the "neighborhood" on a work trip and managed to add a few days in Vic Falls. It required a full day of tele-working at the Bayete. There wasn't a desk in my room, but I was able to set up at a table without any trouble - a beautiful table outside in their garden - and had no trouble connecting for Skype when needed. They checked on me throughout the day to make sure I was okay, which I definitely was! Can't wait to go again and take my husband with me next time. Highest recommendation! And the falls... bucket list. Awesome!

We had a fantastic stay at Bayete recently, the lodge provided us a haven of peace and tranquility throughout our stay in Vic Falls. The reception staff were extremely knowledgable when it came to activities and things to do in the local area with great relationships with the local suppliers and provided us with great recommendations. The food was excellent, and all the kitchen and restaurant staff were just so friendly and helpful It’s was a pleasure at meal times. Unfortunately we were caught in the middle of the Corona Virus crisis where our onward journeys were barred due to border closures and our return flights cancelled. We had to extend our stay by several days and the staff pulled out all the stops to assist us with finding a solution to our travel issues. We had constant access to office computers and phones and they also gave us preferential rack rates for our extending our stay which given the circumstances was a lovely gesture. Despite being under a great deal of pressure themselves due to the unprecedented events, the staff always remained positive and helpful and made our own somewhat stressful situation a lot more manageable. The lodge had a great family atmosphere and you had a real sense that the management treated their staff very well given their service standard to us. Hopefully when the crisis is over, we will be able to return to Bayete and complete our holiday and journey as originally planned.
