6/10 Good

Staff ripped us off replacing our tires.
Enjoyed our stay except we suffered two punctured tires and the staff said they would help arrange us two new tires. It took them 48 hours to do so (meaning we had to extend our stay at the resort), and they charged us $60 per tire, a complete rip-off. I feel like they took the opportunity to exploit us given we would be stranded otherwise. For this reason, I feel disappointed at the service and wouldn't return.

Great venue for young and old
Enjoyed the stay although they are very much in the process of improving and building new facilities. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Service overall are good. The location great as it is just outside the main entrance into Hwange National Park.The ideal place for rest and relax after a day out in the National Park. All accommodation very clean and well cared for. The food menu are not very big, but foods prepared very tastefully.

Perfect place to stay - highly recommended
Well kept, clean, pieceful, linked to nature. Hepful caring staff & owners - best regards to Victor! Convenient location next to the park entrance (Main camp) We loved our stay so much, that we have returned for 2 more nights on our return trip from VF Simple accommodation, but with all basic comfort you need, wish it will stay like this, much better way than some extreemly overpriced "snobbish" places arround.

8/10 Very good

Friendly staff and good value
We had a day and a half to spend here and everything from our pickup in Victoria Falls to our activities went smoothly. The staff are polite and friendly and professional. Although a bit on the primitive side the resort had everything we needed though I would have loved a gin and tonic! And a bedside table. Because of the shortage of cash in Zimbabwe it was disappointing for us that all food and drinks had to be paid in cash. Would have been much more convenient to pay for it all at the end by credit card like most hotels. However the service and quality of food was good. Would definitely come again and maybe try out the deluxe accommodation that they are building.
