Campsites in Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls has a few campsites available, although it's the one area of accommodation that has limited choices. If you have your own tent and utensils, sites are roughly $10 to $15 per person per night, plus about $10 per vehicle.
Options include The N1 Hotel and campsite, the Rest camp, Shoestrings backpackers lodge, Victoria Falls backpackers. Each of these have central areas where there is a restaurant and a swimming pool to cool off in.

Worth a mention are the camping spots within the Zambezi National Park. These spots along the Zambezi are riverside campsites, with absolutely no facilities so you need to be completely self-sufficient. Being in the national park, you would also need to pay national parks entrance fees per person and per vehicle, plus the camping fee. This is all paid at the entrance gate.
Dorm Living in Victoria Falls
If you don't have your own camping gear, then the dormitories will be your next cheapest option. These range from $18 to $25 per person per night and you share the room with at least three other people. Some dorm rooms take up to 10 guests on either bunk beds or series of single beds.

The next best option would be a simple furnished tent, which will cost between $40 and $50 per tent, for two people sharing. These generally will have two single stretcher beds, lamp, and side table with plug points.
Furnished tents are a good cheap option
The only spots that these tents are available are at Explorers Village and Shoestrings Backpackers. Victoria Falls Backpackers has safari tents with a small veranda.
For all the above options, you will have access to shared ablutions, as well as a place for you to prepare meals if you want to self-cater.
Next up on the ladder at these establishments are basic double, twin rooms and family rooms with own en-suite bathrooms. So if you don't like sharing ablutions this option might be the one for you. Prices for these rooms start at around $50 per night.
