Advice on Victoria Falls accommodation
I am Zimbabwean and I'm planning a week's holiday in Zim with my English family - 28 March to 03 April 2015. Our party consists of myself, my daughter and husband, and her 3 children aged 17, 13 and 12.
Our budget is limited, so we need some suggestions and recommendations, please, on lower cost accommodation.
We are happy to make our own travel arrangements, but we'd prefer a package which includes return flights from Joburg and 3 or 4 nights in a budget hotel or self-catering accommodation at Victoria Falls - somewhere clean and comfortable and secure, with a swimming pool if possible.
We also hope to spend a couple of days at Matopos before returning to Joburg - if this is something you are able to advise on?
Thanks and best wishes,

Do the 2-bed rondavel chalets have electric plugs for charging batteries, laptops, etc., etc. ?
I am really not 100% sure, but I would presume so seeing that they are electrified. The central area by the pool and bar certainly has plug sockets for charging.

Packages/accommodation for people from Bulawayo
Are there any packages available for people from Bulawayo? If not, then am looking for accommodation of one room with two single beds. Single mum and 9 year old son needs to be very reasonble as we're on a tight shoestring. Will have no transport when we get there (will have to take a bus or find some other way to get to the Falls.) My son has never seen the Falls, we've had an exhausting year and, somehow, I really want to be able to give him this trip - around Christmas (praying for a miracle) or around my son's birthday, 16th December.
What can you suggest, please?

hello Boo and Tony,

i am having trouble to decide which one should we stay there? Can you give me your feedback and which one is better ? It is for July 2014 and will stay there four days. ILALA Lodge or Kingdom hotel
where to stay?
My friend and I want to see Victoria falls. Since the best view (we were told) is from Zimbabwe's side, we will go to Zimbabwe. What is the most cost effective way to get there via JHB? And where can we stay? We just need about 3 days in Zim. Nothing expensive, just comfortable. Do you know of a package we can take? We will go end of October 2013.
Accommodation in Chobe & Victoria Falls
Hello Tony & Boo, Our friends Heather & Steph who will be visiting your area have used your site & recommended you. We will be there probably just before them. We fly into Kasane on 2nd September 2013 at 1.25pm & are wanting to stay at Chobe Game Lodge for 4 nights & then Kingdom Hotel in Victoria Falls for 4 nights as we fly out of Victoria Falls on 10th September 2013 at 1.25pm. If possible we would like to see the Okavango Delta, is there day trips from Chobe or could we do a fly in & stay 2 nights there taking a day off each at Chobe & Victoria Falls? Could you give me accommodation pricing for the above please. Regards Therese
National Park Chalets
I am travelling to Vic Falls with my sister and her husband in january next year. We were hoping to stay in the chalets in the national park as my parents stayed there on a trip in their 20s. Is it possible to stay in the national Park for several days? do you need a car with you? What sort of activities are there in the park and is it far from the town centre?
Accommodation in Plumtree?
by Wayne Duck
(Sun City, North West)
I'm planning a trip in May and need accommodation for one night (for two people sharing) in Plumtree. I have searched everywhere but found no reference to any accommodation establishment in this town. I'm willing to bunk down in the school hostel...only thing is I've not found anyone that can tell me what the telephone or e-mail address is of the school!
I'd really appreciate some help in this regard.
Thanks and take care

WERE TO STAY IN VIC FALLS....??
by RODNEY VAN NIEKERK
(EDENVALE SOUTH AFRICA)
Hi, FROM YOUR WEBSITE I GATHERED THE VIC FALLS HOTEL AND THE KINGDOM HOTEL ARE THE CLOSEST TO THE FALLS, IS THIS CORRECT ?.
WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A VIC FALLS EXPERIENCE, IN THE TOWN, HOW CLOSE ARE THE HOTELS MENTIONED TO THE FALLS ITSELF ?.
NEVER BEEN THERE, LAST TIME I WAS IN ZIM WAS PRIOR TO ZIMBABWE INDEPENDENCE, AND I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO SEE KARIBA, BUT WAS DEFINITELY ADVISED NOT TO WALK OVER THE BRIDGE, IT COULD HAVE CAUSED AN INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT....NOW, WE WANT TO SEE VICTORIA FALLS.
