"Bed & Breakfast" Options

Hello - We're staying one night at The Kingdom Hotel in Victoria Falls, but when I go to book there are 3 options for the room: Domestic, Regional, or Foreign Bed & Breakfast, with Foreign being the most expensive. Can anyone advise the difference or what is offered? Thank you!

I may be wrong but I believe Domestic = Zim resident; Regional = resident of neighboring countries in Southern Africa and Foreign = everywhere else.

I suspect RV is correct. Local residents get the cheapest rate, international visitors pay the highest rate, and SADC residents probably pay something in between.

So I'm afraid you pay the foreign rate.

No difference in the rooms whatsoever. As an overseas visitor you will pay more. This is not only in Zimbabwe - it happens in many other Southern African Countries - it is an effort to attract local guests by offering them a local rate - not a case of overcharging international clients
