All the staff, from reception to dining to housekeeping, are friendly, competent, and happy to be of assistance. Everyone there made us feel special and like family.

This is a clean, well-appointed, friendly guest house with lovely, relaxing grounds. Managers Thelma, Lloyd and Suzanne made us feel like their only guests, catering to our every whim over out 2-night stay. Meals were delicious and varied and served with friendly care by Tafadzwa. Short walk to town center and the falls and lovely neighborhood to walk in and explore, too, for those needing to stretch their legs after long flights! Thanks to all at Batonka Lodge!

This was our first stop when we arrived in Victoria Falls before we left to go on 9 days of safari. The guest house is very cute. Great outside space and patios to eat and have drinks as well. We had dinner there the first night and it was very good. Breakfast was included and had a variety for all three of us. The rooms were spacious with a terrace and a huge bathroom. There was a mini-fridge and bottled water was provided. We were there for two nights and then two nights when we came back after our safari days. They welcomed us back like family and they even held on to a piece of luggage for us while we went on safari. We look forward to going back soon!
