Batonka Guest Lodge

Victoria Falls

Rating: Mid-range    

Batonka Guest Lodge overview

This stunning property opened its doors in June 2016 and offers first class accommodation in a quiet suburb of Victoria Falls.  You are away from the hustle and bustle of town, but it's only a short walk away.

Batonka Lodge has 22 rooms in total, spread across the grounds allowing for greater privacy.  Each has an en-suite bathroom, modern furnishings and light, neutral decor with tasteful accents of colour to add warmth. The rooms are spacious and airy and come complete with TV, WiFi, universal chargers and a tea/coffee station. The doors open out to the veranda and beautiful gardens where the pool is located.

The inviting main area houses the restaurant, lounge, reception and curio shop. Dining takes place either indoors or alfresco on  the large spacious terrace overlooking the garden and swimming pool. There is a comfortable lounge area with a fireplace providing warmth on chilly evenings, and there is also an outside lounge area so you can make the most of the sunshine while you are here.

Batonka has been built with the environment in mind and where possible eco-friendly practices have been utilised. Solar geysers heat the water for all the rooms, the air-conditioners are ozone friendly compliant and have inverters that consume 40% less power.  There is a grey water recycling system in place to conserve water, the garden irrigation system works on timers to conserve water and LED lighting is used to conserve energy, so you can rest assured everything is being done to ensure the impact on the environment is minimalised without compromising the comfort of your stay.

"A small very personal hotel, great service and lovely food. The room was spacious and comfortable."
