Another favorite in Victoria Falls
Great place to stay and close to the River Brewing Co for craft/draft beers and gin tastings. Wasn't able to try their breakfast but the rooms were large enough and clean; and the bedding comfortable. Would definitely go back if the price is right.

Great value, nice chalets, interesting noises
The rooms are tastefully put together, secure and clean. The pool is great and the restaurant and lounge area is comfortable. I also found the staff very helpful. There was quite a bit of construction noise, for work that I gather was supposed to have ended before I arrived. It's obviously not going on for ever, so not the end of the world. However, the noise you might have to get used to is helicopter noise from commercial flights over the Falls (as the hotel basically backs on to the Falls). This shouldn't matter too much, though, if you're spending your days out and about. At night, you can hear the Falls, which I found quite nice.

Good location
Good location, close to bridge and town center. Very friendly staff. Clean everywhere. But in the room, no WiFi and TV.
Ting, sg3 night trip
Very good 8.0
Clean comfortable tent stay; Very sad pool unavail
While the pictures for the safari tents show an outdoor cooking area (with sinks and a place for a braii fire), it really is just for a braii. With no refrigerator or cooking equipment, it would be hard to do much besides grill fresh meat. We were very disappointed the pool was under construction (not just the pool but the whole lounging area around it) and we didn't know in advance of booking or arriving. But the manager was very accommodating, offering us a free sunset cruise for our disappointment. The communal bathrooms were very clean and there was plenty of hot water. Staff were SO friendly.
