Batonka Lodge was a wonderful experience- the staff was welcoming and attentive. The food was so good ! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The chef was just awesome - I just can’t say enough good about this place.

8/10 Very good

Well maintained property. I guess because guests were few at this time of the year, breakfast options were super limited. All ala carte with just two options - english breakfast or omelet.

10/10 Exceptional

Absolutely amazing property! The service is the absolute best, the staff is so friendly. The chef makes the best meals ever, so make sure to book dinner reservations. All of the activities the recommend are only the best ones (ie Pure Africa). I can’t recommend this place enough. Also, make sure to ask Tafadzwa for one of his Cappuccino… he placed 3rd as a Barista and makes top level coffee drinks.

It was a very nice place, great customer service from all of the staff and they were always willing to assist when ever they can. The rooms are very nice and were very clean. The place itself is well maintained, it’s actually worthy the stay. However, I would suggest they increase their TV channels and allow for people to have a bit of variety also on the dinner and breakfast
