You will find Victoria Falls Rest Camp right in the middle of Victoria Falls town – within easy walking distance of the largest waterfall in the world, and the surrounding shops, restaurants, curio market and booking agents. Shoestrings Backpackers is comparable in price but is not nearly as big or private.

The accommodation offered is budget type but in very well maintained and secure surroundings.

The green grass and lots of trees in the Rest Camp makes a very pleasant atmosphere. We would advise the newer abolitions and accommodation closer to the restaurant are they ones to try and head for.

The chalets and dorms are clean and functional with good abolitions.  The camp site is nice with good shady sites.

The lodge accommodation is recommended for families with two bedrooms, a sitting area and a kitchen.  The general atmosphere makes for a safe and secure environment for children to play and enjoy the facilities. At the moment Lodge 15 has been redone – and is definitely worth asking for – very nice with air conditioning – it is slightly more expensive but well worth it.

Our Opinion

The Rest Camp is really for those who are on a budget, and don't mind not having awesome river or gorge views, but want to be in a good central position to explore Victoria Falls.

On the grounds of the Victoria Falls Rest Camp is the "In Da Belly Restaurant" which is really good value for money. It serves breakfast for about US$8 and light snacks throughout the day.

A set menu can be pre booked (min of 5 people) can be arranged for approximately US$15.

Very pleasant clean surroundings to enjoy a light snack or cold drink, whilst overlooking the swimming pool.

Very sociable venue as many of the overland trucks stop here, plus many of the Victoria Falls residents like to eat here as it is very reasonably priced.

Many thanks for all your assistance. You have probably been the most responsive and helpful tour organizers I have worked with- anywhere in the world. I'll be sure to recommend you to my colleagues and friends.

All the activities lived up to the hype!
by Alex (Swaziland)
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

Memory I will not forget
by Sunitha
Hi Jane
Hope you are keeping well.I must say a very big thank you for all your assistance and advice for my trip. I had the most amazing time at Vic Falls, a memory I will not forget.
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
