Batonka Guest Lodge
is located in the Victoria Falls
area in northwest Zimbabwe
Victoria Falls is one of the most alluring locations in Africa, a major hub for safari in the region. The falls themselves are an impressive sight, but there is so much more to to the place, with safari in the adjacent reserves and a very wide range of other activities.
Situated in a residential area of Victoria Falls Town, Batonka Guest Lodge is a really pleasant and relatively lower cost option
The lodge is centred on a very nice Colonial Era bungalow with lounge and dining areas, leading out to a sweeping verandah, manicured gardens and a nice swimming pool.
Guest accommodation is in a total of 22 rooms, set in several smaller buildings on the plot, some of which have interconnecting doors for families.
Activities include visits to Victoria Falls, plus options for motorboat safari, canoe safari, white-water rafting and various other extreme sports and animal interaction experiences in the greater area.
The main potential downsides at Batonka Guest Lodge are that it is located in town and away from the river, the plot is relatively small, the falls area can get rather busy, some of the activities in that area are rather tacky and temperatures can be extremely high Oct/Nov.
