Batonka Guest Lodge
This upmarket boutique guest lodge within easy walking distance of town is modern and tastefully decorated. It's small and personal and by far the best choice in its price range
Batonka Guest Lodge is an upmarket boutique guest lodge and simply put is just beautiful. It really is in a class of its own in this price range and also holds onto a standard of service that is rare to find these days. This eco friendly lodge, which opened its doors in June of 2016 is located in the residential suburbs just 2.5 kilometres from the Victoria Falls entrance. Being new it has all the up-to-date mod cons.
Batonka Lodge offers 22 tastefully designed and decorated, spacious rooms each with its own small balcony. TV, wifi, air-conditioning, universal chargers, mosquito nets and a tea and coffee station are standard in every room. The large modern en-suite bathrooms are really stunning. Inter-leading family rooms are available.
The large central area encompasses the reception, curio shop, lounge and indoor dining room as well as a very large outside terrace which overlooks the gardens and swimming pool. This terrace, with a nice coffee bar is an ideal place to relax and chat to fellow travellers take in a coffee or opt to eat your meals here.
The owners of Batonka Guest Lodge very much respect the environment and opted to build the lodge to have as low a carbon footprint as possible. These following features were implemented; Solar geysers for all the rooms, air conditioners that are ozone friendly compliant and have inverters that consume 40% less power, grey water recycling into the gardens to conserve water, garden irrigation systems on timers to conserve water, waste separation and organic waste used in vermiculture to produce vermicompost, LED lighting to reduce electricity consumption, responsible towel and sheet laundering (to reduce water consumption).
All of the above makes for grand lodge but perhaps Batonka greatest feature yet is its staff; super friendly, accommodating and helpful, most guests just don't want to leave!
We like that Batonka works as an alternative to the hotels in town, without being too far from the centre of town and Victoria Falls activities. It comes slightly cheaper than the upmarket hotels, but offers that bit of luxury you won't find in most B & B lodges. We recommend Batonka for a comfortable and guest-friendly stay for couples, and families alike.
