We stayed for three nights in a self catering bungalow. These are quite old but functional, excellent quality sheets and serviced daily. We imagined we were non-commissioned officers in a British military barrack in about 1915. That was the technology level we are talking about. Town water was off for part of two days so we used the campsite showers....

We stayed here 3 nights while visiting Victoria Falls in their Safari Tent, a luxury tent of which I think they only have one. The tent seemed like a good option with a double bed, fridge, and in-suite bathroom. Except we couldn't use the bathroom at all because it was essentially a breading ground for hundreds of mosquitos! The staff...

My apologies for the experience you had with our tent. We have tried fumigating the mosiquitoes but we are just having a bad year with mosquitoes this year. We will keep trying different chemical. We value your feedback, thank you for taking time to review our facilities.

We stayed in one of the larger self catering lodges. The rest camp is located a few hundred metres from the main road in Victoria Falls so is very convenient for getting anywhere. The lodge was clean and fully equipped with bed linen and towels. All of the beds had mosquito nets and two of the bedrooms had fans. There...

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...

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...

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...

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....
