Lugar de Paz - Place of Peace: Lokuthula Hotel

Lokuthula significa en Sindebele: lugar de Paz
Victoria Falls Safari Lodge está a cuatro kilómetros de Victoria Falls y es un capricho que vale la pena después de un Safari

El edificio central ( Victoria Falls Safari Lodge ) es todo de madera , sin paredes , muy ventilado y yo diría que es de estilo Africano . En el están todos los servicios , restaurantes , bar , recepción y una magnífica terraza desde la que se puede ver aparte de la puesta de sol , el lago al que vienen a beber todo tipo de animales ( elefantes , impalas , cebras , aves... )
Puedes quedarte en las habitaciones del hotel que están junto al edificio principal o puedes alojarte en las "lodges" ( Lokuthula lodges ) , a las que se accede por los "jardines" del hotel en los que hay facoceros y otros animales salvajes . Los "lodges"están completamente equipados con cocina , mosquitera... y desde ellos puedes ver animales y la naturaleza . Todo un lujo !!!
Por cierto nos llamó la atención que como el hotel tampoco los lodges tenían ventanas
A las 13h es todo un espectácuo ver como cientos de buitres acuden delante del hotel para comer los restos de comida que les dan

Lokuthula means in Sindebele : Place of Peace
Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is four miles from Victoria Falls and is a treat worth after a Safari
The main building (Victoria Falls Safari Lodge) is all wood, without walls very well ventilated and I would say that is of African style. In this area are all services, restaurants, bar, reception and a superb terrace from which you can see besides the sunset, the lake where come to drink all kinds of animals (elephants, impalas, zebras, birds .. .)come to drink .
You can stay in rooms that are next to the main building or you can stay in lodges ( Lokuthula Lodges), which is accessed through the "gardens" of the hotel where there are warthogs and other wild animals
The lodges are fully equipped with kitchen, mosquito nets ... and from them you may see animals and nature. A luxury!
By the way , we noticed that as the hotel , the rooms had no windows
At 13h is quite a spectacle to see how hundreds of vultures come in front of the hotel to eat leftovers that they give to them

Phumula Apartments: Good Value self catering

The apartment was spacious and comfortable( everything worked)though we only really used the kitchen for making tea and coffee, and the refrigerator for storing those cold zambesi bitters.

There is a view of the falls (well of the spray from the falls actually!) from the balcony.

A highlight occured most evenings, when the baboons cam in to sun themselves on the surrounding rooftops and balconies. Including ours! Fortunately no drying washing was removed by these interlopers.

Shoestring's: Backpackers

We cheaply crammed in on the small grass area where you can camp because it was loads cheaper and the rooms were too expensive for our budget.

This was always busy and a real party place.
The bar area was comfortable and cosy, the staff were friendly and the food was good.

Showers were clean and spacious.

The walk into town is a short one. This place has a brilliant location.

Tokkie Lodge: Great budget place to stay in Vic Falls

Tokkie Lodge is a comfortable budget place to stay. It's run by an ex-overland driver Rob who is very helpful and knows the area well. The rooms are really basic with just beds and fans, but are clean and comfortable.
There are adequate shared facilities.
Drinks are provided through an honesty bar and breakfast is available on request. There's a communal lounge with satelite TV and a small swimming pool.

A friendly and comfortable place to stay for the budget traveller in Vic Falls!

Luxury and Tranquility: The Royal Livingstone

This is truly a 5 star hotel. The hotel is located right in the National Park of Victoria Falls. One of the restaurants is set right along the Zambezi River which you can hear the power of the waterfalls and see the mist. You can walk from your room directly along the bank of the river and up through the park entrance on the Zambia side. If you wish to head over to Zimbabwe, just remember your passport and quite possibly some cash for the Visa to enter Zimbabwe. One final comment about the hotel, it is not cheap. The average night room is about $400. There is one other hotel (about 3 stars) within the park called the Zambezi Sun. This is not as fancy, but a little more family friendly and certainly less expensive.

The location to see the falls

Municipal campsite: camp site

Mostly cold showers but early afternoon can get hot water, there are a few baths as well.
Good laundry facilities, large site and a little grubby due to over use. Can be raided by baboons in the morning. Have seen an elephant or two force entry from the fence near the railway line. campsite is very handy for the town, just across a small road.

I stayed at 2 different accomodations :
Tokkies Lodge - really someones house with rooms out the back, run by a nice lady called Sue. Dorms are 3 bed dorms, cost around $8/nt. You can self cater in the kitchen and laze around in the lounge, she also sells beer! Its about a 20 minute walk from town, get a cab at night.

Shoestring Backpackers - a great hostel, used by some of the overland trucks, either camping or dorm rooms. Rooms are $6 for a bed, camping £2. Dorms have 4 beds, are clean. The hostel has a tv lounge, a pool and a great bar which is often packed. Its only a 5 min walk to town too.
