Victoria Falls Homestay

Beautiful and welcoming private homes furnished to cater for your holiday accommodation needs


Victoria Falls Homestay properties offer guests exclusive accommodation, particularly great for families and travelling groups of up to 10 pax. Most are located in the quiet residential area a few kilometres away from the town centre and the Victoria Falls rainforest. Homestays are a home away from home, fully equipped with everything that you would need to be comfortable while you enjoy your stay in Victoria Falls.

The properties typically will have a few bedrooms, with a combination of twin and double bed options. Most have shared bathrooms between two or more rooms, while the main bedrooms will have en-suite bathrooms. The living room offers cosy sofas in front of a flat screen television that has digital satellite (DSTV). Kitchens are fully equipped, and there is plenty of space for big meals around the dinner table. Some homestays will also have outdoor dining areas, plus a garden and swimming pool.

All self-catering Victoria Falls homestay properties have a backup generator and inverter power supply, and access to wi-fi.

Below are some homestays in Victoria Falls:

Acacia House

Acacia House is located in the low density residential area, about a 7 minute drive to the Victoria Falls Rainforest. It is a beautiful self-catering home overlooking the edge of the national park, great for bird and wildlife lovers.

The garden faces the bush, and there is a sparkling swimming pool and outside braai and entertainment area. The house has 4 en-suite bedrooms, all with ceiling fans. The living area has open-plan lounge, dining area and kitchen. Wireless internet and DSTV are also available.

Gibson House

This is a homestay house with a difference - there are resident cooks on the property. At this self-catering residence, you may bring your groceries and recipes, and have one of the cooks prepare your meals for you. Daily housekeeping is available, and there is a general hand to assist with whatever guests may need.

Gibson House has views as far as the Zambezi River and beyond. It is located 3kms from the entrance to the Victoria Falls Rainforest, a mere 7 minutes' drive.

The house can accommodate up to 12 people comfortably, in 5 bedrooms, all with air conditioners. The three bathrooms have toilet and wash basin, and either a bathtub or shower. Other facilities include a kitchen, dining room, an outside lounge, swimming pool, DSTV, wireless internet, backup generator and inverter.

Miombo Mews Apartments

These Victoria Falls apartments, 26 fully-furnished holiday homes, are conveniently located a mere 3.2 km from Victoria Falls, in the heart of the vibrant town centre. Each apartment offers contemporary and comfortable accommodations complete with two bedrooms (one twin and one double), two bathrooms, a lounge, a kitchen, a dining area, and a private patio overlooking manicured gardens. The apartments have been carefully designed to offer a relaxing retreat for up to 4 guests (with provision for additional children if required) to make for an idyllic holiday option for families, self drive and group travel.

Our Opinion

There are not many of these "home stay" houses available in Victoria Falls and they are very popular. The houses in the residential area are ideal for a family or group of friends wanting to stay together in lovely surroundings - with your own garden, pool, lounge, dining, kitchen, barbeque and entertainment area. For a group it works out much cheaper than hotel accommodation.

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.
