We as the owners and managers take great exception to our lodge being called dirty as we take pride in it.
We enforce the rule of residents only on our premises.
We have a rule of consider people after ten and so have no noise on our premise, this is rigidly enforced.
NB: It is unfair of you to report negatively on Zimbabwe as a whole because you had a bad experience some where.
Zimbabwe in my opinion is much better than Zambia.
I think you have made a mistake in regards as to where you stayed.
Being a little out of town is a big advantage as it is quieter. The rooms were lovely and very clean. There are very few budget places in the whole of Zimbabwe so this one really flies the flag for backpacker hostels. Highly recommended
We stayed in a room with the en suite bath, which was very nice!
The tours were booked through Backpackers, which was great. The location is off the beaten path, but still close to visits to Victoria Falls and surrounding area. The only watch-out is with the taxi drivers, as they try to raise their prices for all tourists.
Backpackers provided a very nice relaxing environment with pool, outside sitting area and meals if required. The staff was exceptional - very friendly and informative.
We spent a weekend at Vic Falls Backpackers, my husband, two young kids (4 & 6), and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Tracey our host was friendly, helpful and nothing was ever an issue. The room was comfy and warm. Bunk beds for the kids was a treat!! The general kitchen area had everything we needed and was clean. The kids had a blast in the pool and garden!! Saturday night Tracey organised a braii which was superb. A great meal round a bonfire, who could ask for more. Would recommend Vic Falls Backpackers to any travellers, - single, couples or families! We will be back!
Stayed at backpackers in dorm room over new years period. They had clearly put extra beds in dorms to male extra cash very little room to move in dorm with additional beds. Was fairly clean facility. Husband and wife team running the back packers wife very very helpful husband extremely rude and obnoxious was told I should have travelled Asia instead of africa. Certainly wouldn't b in a Hury to stay again.
We stayed for four days and totally enjoyed our stay.
The peaceful setting, the gardens are beautiful and the hammock a great place to relax.
Tracey was a gracious and helpful host and booked our excursions, we especially enjoyed the sunset cruise on the Zambezi,we saw hippos and elephants.
It is a short walk to town but not too onerous.
The only negative would be the mattress' are soft foam but the room was clean and the kitchen well equipped.
Thanks Vic Falls for a memorable experience
