Stay at the Gwaai River Hotel on your journey to Vic Falls.....This was described as a 'Fawlty Towers' Style in my travel book and it?s really funny. The black headwaiter wairs a scarf with the printing 'Headwaiter' , same style like Beauty Queens do .....his English wasn't that well either....in a funny way!
There is one of these really old ventilators, which you might know from old Africa movies.... It's a carpet hanging from the ceiling, and someone has to move it!
The rooms have been clean and huge! I loved this place!
Elephant Camp - Victoria Falls
Around A$500 pp per night ..... but worth every cent.
Very small. Accomodates a maximum of 8 guests. They have four orphaned elephants that would now be about 18 years old which you can ride, walk with and just be around. It is a magical experience.
Great food, great wine and the owners are lovely people with great knowledge of the area and the wildlife.
Good value for money accommodation are Safari Lodge and Lokutula Lodge. More luxurious is the Elephant Hills Hotel. I can still remember the Victoria Falls Hotel colonial styling when we stay there in 1971. It is within walking distance from the Falls and one can see the gorge from the hotel.
A Boma dinner is recommended, also the nightlit waterhole. It is not uncommon to see elephant on your doorstep, wharthogs on the lawn.
Surely in a tent and then camping in the middle of nowhere.
in the middle of nowhere, it's free, if you are unlucky when a lion passes by, you pay with your life (this last sentence is a joke).
US$ 215 per person
Senuko Safari Lodge was the first photographic safari lodge to open in the Conservancy. The lodge is built on a granite kopje overlooking pristine bushveld and has been constructed to blend discretely into the environment by the clever use of slate, reed and hardwoods. The eight chalets all have an excellent view and follow a unique design with open front and roll-down canvas screens. Two four poster double beds, a mini bar, overhead fan, writing area and verandah complete each bedroom while a spacious dressing room provides bath, separate shower, double washbasins and separate w.c. The public areas incorporate a lounge/video/reading room, dining room, a seperate tree level cocktail bar and a small swimming pool. Safari activities are flexible and include walking to allow guests an intimate experience of the sounds, scents and feel of nature. Black rhino can be tracked on foot, adding the thrill of the hunt to the walking experience. Day and night game drives are conducted in specially designed open four-wheel drive vehicles and interests such as birding are specially catered for, with more than 400 species of bird identified in the Conservancy.
We stayed at the Victoria Falls Hotel.
Very expensive I understand. We stayed as part of our package so I don't have a definitive price.
Beautiful old hotel with a tremendous view of the Falls in the distance.
The Kingdom Hotel (This place is MAGNIFICENT)
This was my first stop in Africa before my 3 safari adventure. When i arrive at this hotel, i couldn't believe my eyes. I have never been more pleased with a hotel. This place was enormous and was completely in the AFRICAN theme. The rooms were top notch. There is a casino in the hotel, as well as, many restaraunts to choose from. Not only is the hotel EXCELLENT, it is walking distance to the ever great VICTORIA FALLS!!
I can't explain how great tihs place is, unless you go there yourself!!
Jacaranda Haven B & B - Harare
The Jacaranda has a very friendly, accommodating hosts, Peter and Sue Boshoff. It is located in a safe area, has a good complimantary breakfast served at a wonderful table. This B & B is a former home that is beautifully sit among trees and vines. There is a poolroom and bar in the garden area and it is well lit at night and very safe and peaceful. They were great at letting us have a place to organize the school supplies we had brought from the states to take to the bush schools.
