    Great place to stay when at Victoria Falls. The lodge was clean, we'll located, and very amenable. Breakfasts were great. Shutter service to town was fabulous and convenient. Staff was very friendly. I would recommend this lodge to anyone staying at Victoria Falls.

    The food and service in the open air restaurant and bar was excellent. The views of the wildlife from our room, our walks, and the restaurant and bar were amazing. Easy transport access to the falls, the Zambezi cruises, and the helicopter rides!

    Does the lodge have binoculars for its guests to use on the premises or outside on a day trip?

    I don't think that they provide binoculars. I'd suggest you to bring your own, as most binoculars provided by hotels/cruise lines are of mediocre quality, if not broken.
