Cheap, yes. But there are just too many rooms too close to each other and so haphazard as well. One can almost lose themselves. Rooms in need of attention too, some basic accessories need to be replaced. The grounds, while they may be as close to natural as possible, ought not to have guests worrying about their encroaching into pathways.... More

I recently stayed at Tatenda Lodge and all i can say is they can do better. They have a great location but some of the amenities need maintenance. The staff could be a bit friendlier and helpful. Its an ok place but i feel their standards could be higher.

The members of staff and owners of the place are always available and right to your aid incase of information required pertaining to the city and guidance in general. They have a smiley welcome and their swimming pool is good. The food is prepared under high hygiene and very delicious.

An immaculate lodge, very clean lodges, beautiful fauna and flora. Staff were very friendly, knowledgeable in their guided tours. The sunset cruise and moonrise were just memorable. Chefs that meal was juicy and delicious.

I had a group of 37 adults and was treated like royalty. Very Clean spacious rooms with clean bathrooms that do not have rusty pipes or stained cracked tiles. Everything is better than 5 star hotels in Zimbabwe. Service is with a smile. Wonderful Zimbabwean People! May God continue to bless them! Very affordable prices for such a large group!

My boyfriend and I travelled to Victoria Falls in September. We picked a place to stay from the Lonely Planet that sounded really nice ahead of time but were concerned that it was somewhat far from town. So, when we got there we asked our taxi driver to take us to some others that were listed in the book, as... More
