The Batonka has 27 rooms arranged around a swimming pool and an immaculate garden; a large living area houses the reception, curio shop, dining room, lounge, bar and huge shaded verandah.
Decor is simple and stylish with a nod to the elegance of colonial times and a full-on yodel to the sophistication of modern times. Mozzy-netted four-poster beds dominate the large rooms and the en suite bathrooms are enormous - all have extra-big shower units, some also have bathtubs. Tiled floors, ceiling fans and air conditioning take care of the temperatures and the water is solar-heated. A large flat-screen TV and Wi-Fi tick the downtime box as does the small balcony overlooking the garden.
Claire and Rowan and their delightful team make the difference between a well-priced, well-appointed guesthouse and the highlight accommodation of your holiday. Batonka quickly made its mark, which is hardly surprising given their pedigree. We have every confidence these high standards will be maintained.
So in Batonka Guest Lodge you’ve got a well-priced, comfortable and friendly place to stay. What more could you want? How about one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World a pleasant half hour walk away?
Victoria Falls is one of those experiences that never gets old. Through a dense rainforest of its own making you hear the roar long before arriving at the sheer cliff opposite the thundering cascade. The power and scale of the world’s largest waterfalls are at once exhilarating and just that little bit terrifying. And of course, in addition to spending a day exploring the waterfalls from all angles, there is a silly amount of additional activities to choose from. Your hosts will book all your activities for you and even lay on a shuttle for the purpose, the only difficulty will be in choosing what to do.
Victoria Falls is a hub of activities ranging from fascinating nature and wildlife encounters to heart-stopping adrenaline hits. Whatever your preference, talk to your Travel Expert about our recommended options, prices and which activities need advance booking.
