“So Glad to Arrive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

We had come from another backpackers place down the road because it was awfully dirty and we were so happy to arrive! They showed us a tent with beds and a chalet (both you used a shared bathroom and showers (but they were in stalls and clean and private with nice hot water). We chose the chalet for $40 a night and loved it. It had good mosquito nets, screens on windows, and was a close walk to the awesome restuarant, pool, and the main office. At the office is a rep from a tour company and she gave us a good deal on the sunset river cruise ( all alcohol and some snacks included). They also offer a Chobe Day Trip. We were very happy with our stay. It was also close to the Vic Falls park!

Room Tip: We liked the one near the bathrooms because it was a bit dark at night.

With a great central location you can walk into town to go and book your activities if you are not booking them through the activities desk. If you are on a budget the price is very good. Stayed there with my family for 4 days. The restaurant "In Da Belly" is average with local entertainment. We stayed in a self catering chalet, what is most important for me is that i could have a hot bath so that was good enough.

Without pretentions this restcamp has functional chalets and bungalows, close to the Falls. The staff at the reception is great. The restaurant is OK, not more than that. As everything is overpriced in Vic Falls, this camp is decently rated. I always start my Vic Falls -> Cape Town cycling tours over here, its spaciousness definitely working in its favour.

The rest camp is in a central location in Victoria Falls, just outside the gate you are in the main street, the town itself is a magnet for tourists and hawkers. The rest camp is a short walk from the falls. The food at the ‘inda belly’ bar/restaurant was excellent and great value, alcoholic drinks are ridiculously cheap. The wifi is sketchy, with the best reception at the bar. The staff were very helpful and friendly, always cheerful and smiling. The rest camp facilities were adequate and clean, with hot water in the showers around the clock. The permanent tents and cabins are basic, clean and comfortable. We had an amazing helicopter flight over the Falls and sunset cruise on the Zambesi.

Room Tip: permanent tents offer great value, cabins with aircon are available - if wanted just ask.

We camped here one night in March. There was no water but no fault of the camp, the whole of Vic Falls was without. The camp accommodated us with stored reservoir water available for use in one ablution block. Lovely poolside restaurant. Good food, good value, polite and friendly staff. Security is good with palisade fencing and patrolling guard. Camp site was clean, well shaded areas. Braai area, powerpoint, tap. The camp site was quiet when we were there but I can imagine gets noisy and busy with overlanders. We stayed after a week through the Okavango Delta so the restaurant was welcomed. Easy access to the falls and in town so walking distance to shops etc for those without their own transport. I did not see the chalets so cannot comment on those. All in all I would recommend it as a great place to stay while passing through to put your feet up by the poolside and relax with a cold beer and "Mosi oa tunya" visible as a back drop to the pool - the towering mist of Vic Falls. Don't expect luxury, but expect helpful staff to do what they can with the limited resources they have available to them after the major depression in Zim.

We chose the Rest Camp for its reasonable price and central location, as we knew from experience that little time is spent in a hotel in Victoria Falls and a lot of time outdoors.We also wanted to save our $ for the myriad of activities on offer at the Falls and the lovely dinners at the superb and colonial Victoria Falls Hotel and the wonderful The Boma restaurant at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge. We booked a 2-bedroom house which was basic but clean and comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. The staff at the reception and tour desk were very helpful and friendly and we feel that we got value for money. A quick 5 minute walk takes you into town and to the well-stocked OK supermarket with 15 minutes to the entry to the Falls. Perfect! For trips further out, there are a number of reliable taxis available with the general fare seemingly pegged at $5. If you are just looking for a place to sleep that is basic but clean, this is a good option

For camping, this is a great location and there was a security fence. The InDaBelly Restaurant and Bar were poolside. Friendly bartender, lots of cheeky monkeys and warthog families wandering about. Hot showers and decent enough bathrooms. But best of all, could walk everywhere and Victoria Falls is what we are here to see. Reception area was able to arrange a Zambezi River Sunset Cruise too. I had been "bush" camping and tenting at campgrounds in Botswana and so I upgraded for 2 nights here in a tent with beds and electricity and it didn't cost much extra, so all in all, I found it quite good to stay here.
