Positioned in the secluded suburbs of Victoria Falls town, refurbished in early 2017 this modern and colourful lodge brings a warm and friendly atmosphere to comfortable accommodation.

Just less than two kilometres (1.2 miles) or a ten-minute walk from town, allows guests to be within minutes of anywhere, with the advantage of being in a quiet and safe neighbourhood, away from the busy town centre.

The lodge is of modern design with brightly coloured decorations lining the walls. The main lobby area is spacious with plenty of natural light providing a comfortable public seating area, where one can make good use of the free Wi-Fi and tea and coffee station.

Eight of the bedrooms come off this lobby, each with its own en-suite bathroom. The rooms are comfortable, with all the basic luxuries needed. The other two bedrooms are also en-suite and located in an exterior building near the dining area.

The dining area is under an open thatch structure, again spacious and comfortable, making meal times pleasant or you can take advantage of the fully stocked bar under the same roof.

All the activities lived up to the hype!

Good Afternoon Boo,
Just wanted to let you know that we are now back in Swaziland and had an incredibly fun time enjoying Victoria Falls! All the activities lived up to the hype and I would like to thank you for all your help in organising a busy but full holiday for us! Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Also wondering where you prefer to have your reviews written?
Thanks again!
All the best

Hi Jane

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
