Couldn't fault it, staff were very helpful and pleasant , they couldn't do enough for you So close to the Botswana border for all your safari and river cruises. Food was very good but you have to order before 7pm. Breakfast was great, and plentiful. Lodges were comfortable and cleaned every day with fresh towels. A special mention to Blessing , who was the nicest guy you could meet. Would definitely stay again if in the area.😎👍

Stayed here for 3 nights. Really enjoyable stay. Great relaxed amd quite location. The lodge was lovely, around 14 rooms with thatched rooves , AC, clean, and of a good standard. The grounds are very nice with a lovely pool, sunbeds and lots of floral. They do an evening meal, but we only had the breakfasts and lunches, which were very good. The staff were lovely, really helpful and knowledgeable. Had a great time and would recommend you stay here if you visit Victoria Falls!

Nguni Lodge by Victoria Falls was a pleasant place to stay, homey with the pool in the center of the huts. My bed was comfortable and those pillows were so soft and fluffy! I appreciated the helpful staff. One night, my aircon was not working, several of the staff joined in fixing it. That is customer service! Thank you Bridget, Naki and Tabani. The breakfast choice was good, European or local dishes. Sibo was rather helpful with the menu. Thank you :-)

Nguni Lodge offers just 14 rooms so the service is very personal. We stayed in room 6 for 3 nights while in Victoria Falls. Clean and incredibly comfortable. The staff makes your stay very personal, and their complimentary concierge service was incredible booking an activity a day with transfers at very reasonable pricing. Air conditioning is a must as it was 102 degrees while we were there. The staff in the restaurant provided exceptional service and very well done meals...breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Their sirloin was one of the best we have eaten. The compound is very secure but close to downtown. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed 2 nights at nguni lodge. The place is very well kept and clean. It is rustic which I think is part off it's charm. It's in quiet suburb of the town. Room overlooking the pool was large with aircon and fan to keep it cool when needed. Bed and linens all good quality and very comfortable. The staff are great, very helpful and organise excursions taxis . We walked the Falls, without guide and that are amazing. We did an evening cruise on Riversong, saw a few animals and enjoyed the peace and beauty of the river.

We had a great stay at this lodge. It is super quaint but comfortable and has everything you need on-site. I forgot my electrical adapter and they were able to lend me one (life saver). The rooms all have Air conditioners, so despite the heat we were able to sleep with no issue. The restaurant had a lovely breakfast and the bar was available for drinks after dinner. The dinner food was not as good as breakfast though. The night we ate there there were only a few choices and our fish and chips were fine, but our friends steak did not look good at all. All in all I highly recommend this lodge.

The Nguni Lodge was a wonderful place to stay. The staff goes above and beyond to help out. Our flight was delayed getting into Vic Falls and we were going to miss our dinner cruise on the Zambezi. The manager jumped into action without us asking and got intouch with the dinner d=cruise people and told them to wait for us as we were on our way. She absolutely saved the day. The room was wonderful and we had wished we could have stayed longer.

We stayed at Nguni Lodge and it was amazing. All the staff were incredibly friendly and kind. The room was clean and beautifully decorated. They have wonderful tranquil gardens with a small bar and restaurant. Our evening meal was a traditional stew which was great paired with the local beer-perfect. Breakfast had a good range of choices and the coffee definitely hit the spot. We would definitely recommend staying here.
