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).

Our Opinion

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.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
