We had a lovely time here, it helps that they have running hot water that never finishes no matter how many people bath before you. I loved it guys...No self catering and house keeping comes in everyday to fix you up. I loved it, well manicured lawns too...

My first advice is when you get to Zimbabwe passport control ASK FOR A MULTIPLE VISA; we did not know and found we had to pay $55 each time we wanted to take a trip either in Zambia or botswana! They are very near and lots of interesting trips go there! very frustrating and expensive!
Lokuthula lodges are very well appointed, very comfortable! the views from your back verandah are extensive, soul restoring and so relaxing. The pools at the Boma are like water holes but wonderful to soak in and clean. they cannot help the leaves or poor insects falling every minute in it! The staff are so helpful kind and willing to do anything for your comfort. The dinner we had at the Boma with African dishes and drums and dances was a delight!
BUT we found general food and drink prices were much too high, not only that but whether at the Boma or at Victoria Safari lodge prices were in $ but if you paid by credit cards you are billed in Rands, which meant that if you come from Europe you are charged twice exchange rates and the rand rate conversion was really poor. Add to this very poor and long service plus high prices, plus specially, at the Victoria falls Safari Lodge, poor quality and poor value for money even at the Makuwa Kuwa restaurant, and dispite the 20% discount on food, we found eating at the Victoria Falls Hotel or Ilala Hotel much more exciting much better quality and value for money! However there are many positive things and we shall be back to Lokuthula having gained from our experience! and the staff is really very kind.

Stayed here for one night. The chalets are cheap and cheerful; well equipped for self catering needs. The chalets have 2 bedrooms, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, lounge and a braai area. The chalets were also clean and comfortable. There's also a free shuttle service into town.

If you feel lazy, the Vic falls safari lodge is a few minutes walk away and they have a restaurant in this hotel. There's also the pricey african themed boma restaurant.

There were lots of mosquitoes in the chalet we had booked and neither the chalets nor the lodges provide any bug spray so make sure you bring some!

7 of us stayed in the lodges and loved it. Great open air space with great private terrace and wonderful scenery. Just make sure to close the canvas curtains during the day, as some hungry monkeys entered our lodge and enjoyed some chips while we were out. Zim lady at the Activities desk was great and helped us pick our excursions - Chobe National Park visit is a MUST. Property was well maintained, staff friendly and main lodge was beautiful. I would go back in a heartbeat!
