Stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed it. Very good service and nice campsite. Showers pretty good and camp site itself nice and green. The restaurant and bar serves really good food and the service is awesome. Good location not far from the falls. I would stay again for sure.

We stayed for 5 nights. If you are into modern furnishings, not the place for you. However it is money for value. Cozy. No wifi unless you buy some card and stand at certain spots. As we stayed in a chalet, the toilet and shower facilities were on the outside. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, were it's situated...

We stayed in Lodge number 1 and our experience at the rest camp was well below average. The lodge is in need of a serious revamp. The bathroom had rust as well as mold. Brown water out of the taps with inconsistent water temperature and pressure. The water/pipes smelt awful. One of the bedroom door handles did not actually shut...

The camping option in Vic Falls. Clean facilities, electricity is available for additional cost however this does not seem to be monitored. Nice bar onsite. Good location, close to the falls. Train is noisy but stops at night. Just watch out for the mozzies and baboons!

A nice campsite/hotel/lodge in the centre of vic falls. Good security and always lots of people coming through. Lots of facilities for campers and overlanders. There are also dorms and lodges for those who wish to upgrade. The In-da-belly restaurant has a great pool in front of it and does some exotic local game meat. For the more budget minded...

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.
