Introduction

Close to Elephant’s Walk, a popular shopping centre in Victoria Falls town is the "Explorers Village". Being only a few minutes walk from the town centre, with its interesting curio shops and lively cafes and a ten-minute walk to the entrance of Victoria Falls, the ‘Village’ boasts a great location, while still remaining quiet and secluded on the edge of the National Park.

Completed in late 2016, the Village is modern and stylish. Aiming to mix budget accommodation with a comfortable and elegant experience - the standard and the more spacious deluxe chalets (opened in July 2019) are all en-suite, very clean with all the basic luxuries a traveller would need, including air-conditioning and a room safe.

The main area is a large thatch building encompassing a reception, small curio and convenience store, lounge and seating areas, a fully stocked bar and a large public dining area, which leads onto the patio and infinity pool.

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner this main area is also a great place to watch sports or other events on the public television.

The Explorers Village also has an area with numerous dome tents with stretchers, linen, side table with lamp and shared facilities which include counter areas for food prep, BBQ facilities and wash area. There are multiple sockets for charging any means of device. The site has a clothes drying rack (for anyone catching up with some laundry) , there is also an additional cold shower in each bay – particularly for those who want to cool off in the boiling hot summer weather. There are very clean and functional shared restrooms.

Our Opinion

The Explorers Village is an excellent option for very good quality budget accommodation. The small but elegant chalets are clean and comfortable and are perfect for travellers wanting cheaper accommodation without compromising on quality. The large central entertainment, dining and bar area has a great atmosphere and facilities, with good quality food being served. The Village's central location makes it very convenient in relation to the shops, banks and other restaurants. We highly recommended the Village for not only those looking in this price range but actually anyone whose not wanting anything fancy and wanting to save money. Only drawback is some of the chalets not being that private.

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.
