View slideshow of Explorers Village in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe - great value budget accommodation


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 16 twin chalets 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 five separated camping grounds are designed specifically for overland tour groups and not single vehicles. Each campsite area has covered slabs where tents can be erected, BBQ facilities, a wash area and parking space for the overland vehicle. There are very clean and functional public restrooms.

The Explorers Village also has an area with numerous dome tents with stretchers, linen and facilities exactly the same as the overland group sites.

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.

Thanks a million once again.

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
