We wanted to overnight at Victoria Falls before heading into the bush in Zimbabwe. The places we wanted to stay were all booked out and Lokuthula Lodges was recommended. Lokuthula is a collection of self-catering lodges in a great location just outside Victoria Falls. Two of the lodges are offered as bed and breakfast accommodation (rather than self-catering) - the breakfast being at the lovely next door Safari Lodge.
We arrived after a long overnight flight. Our lodge was fine with an open-fronted living room (close the canvas flaps when you go out because of the naughty baboons!). Warthogs and impala grazed on the lawn outside. The only downside was that because it was really meant for self-caterers there were none of the usual hotel/lodge trimmings. Not a bottle of water or mosquito coil or spray. We were there in October (hottest month) and the bedroom was very hot and dark. It had a mosquito net but that turned out to have mosquitoes rolled inside the netting and I woke up with 22 bites on my back!. Good thing I was taking my anti-malarials. Breakfast was very good and all the staff were friendly. The Lodge has a good shuttle service into town. The Falls are absolutely stunning!!!
