Bayete Guest Lodge

This lodge offers comfortable and affordable accommodation in the heart of the Victoria Falls residential area. It is situated three kilometers from the town of Victoria Falls, and 22 kilometers from Victoria Falls International Airport (VFA). Newly-renovated, the Bayete Guest Lodge is a family-run property that offers 25 rooms set in a lush, tropical garden.

Central to the lodge is the large teardrop swimming pool, which is hugged by the Caldecott Dining Boma and the Ingwezi Tavern. The tavern, steeped in history and character, is central to the communal area where guests are able to gather, have refreshments, and socialize. Room rates include a full English breakfast, which is served in the dining area every morning. Buffets and braais for groups, and other meals, are also available by request, and should be pre-ordered.

The lodge's deluxe option is a spacious and generously-sized room, with an en-suite shower, basin, and toilet. It comes equipped with a full range of amenities and some of the rooms have bathtubs. Amenities include universal power points, USB ports, tea and coffee-making facilities, air-conditioning, hairdryers, swimming towels, mosquito nets, toiletries, and insect repellent.

Chobe Safari Lodge

This lodge is situated in the town of Kasane, on the banks of the Chobe River. It shares the border with the Chobe National Park in Botswana, and therefore offers an excellent gateway to the park and its surrounding areas. The lodge has a restaurant that features the indigenous and rich flavors of Africa. Scrumptious buffet dinners offer a wide variety of meals, from exotic game meats, roasts, barbecues, stir-fries, Indian cuisine, to vegetarian dishes.

The Chobe Safari Lodge has two bars - the Sedudu Bar which is famous for the most beautiful sunsets, and the Cocktail Bar that overlooks the Caprivi floodplains. It also has a swimming pool and Wi-Fi service throughout the property.

There are 46 safari rooms which are the newest addition to the lodge. They are individually-decorated and offer every comfort. Each room has air-conditioning, luxurious, en-suite bath and shower facilities, as well as a satellite television. The safari rooms enjoy expansive lawns that form the banks of the Chobe River. Each room has its own private patio from which you can enjoy the river's views.

Waterlily Lodge

This lodge is also located in Kasane, near Chobe National Park, and offers quality accommodation for both holiday or business travels. It is carefully designed to get perfectly integrated with its wonderful, natural surroundings. The Waterlily Lodge is a small and private, and can cater to a maximum of 20 guests. Facilities ensure guests get quality accommodation, and the staff provides exquisite service to visitors. Their commitment is to make your African dream come alive.

Accommodation consists of 10 spacious rooms, each with two single beds. The rooms have been built around one side of a central, circular courtyard on two floors, and are situated on the back of the lodge which makes it very quiet and great for a good night's sleep. They also face the gardens, as well as overlook the mighty Chobe River.
