10/10 Exceptional

We (my wife and I), had a great stay at Ursula’s (surrounded by bush some 15km from the town of Victoria Falls). The staff was super helpful, efficient and friendly. The setting is great, with a water hole in near but safe proximity to each two-bed unit (electric fenced for the safety of guests and staff alike). To top it all, Ursula’s is good value for money. Transport arrangements by the staff was spot-on for our day excursions and our back-and-forth trips to the airport. No car rental was necessary. The few kilometers travel from the main tar road into tne bush, was a nice reminder that we were away from the town centre yet close enough to the falls etc. Street vendors and high pressure for a sale was bothersome to us; we feel for vendors’ need to make a buck, but they tend to be to close for comfort.

The staff are exceptional people. Willing to assist and attentive. Special mention has to be made of Olivia whom I regarded as our Entertainment Manager and Michael who was our Game Drive Guide. After only 3 days we felt sad when leaving.

Happy finale to our adventures in Zimbabwe
We had a wonderful stay at the end of our holiday for three nights breakfast included. The team there looked after us marvellously. They arranged trips and activities that we requested well and advices us on safety and what time of day was best to do these sort of activites. We even were woken up by the team so that we could see the wild rhino walk past the lodge which was very considerate. The breakfast was filling and well presented. It was all in all very peaceful and made for a lovely place to rest day before travelling home.

Wonderful lodge!
It was great to find this wonderful small lodge with free shuttle to Victoria Falls. Staying in town is not necessary when you have this beautiful property as a retreat. The hospitality of Olivia, and the food prepared by a dedicated chef, went well beyond expectation. It is a piece of paradise. Book it if you can!

Old Ursula Camp
We stayed a week and it was fantastic. The chef was in fact our own personal chef and he produced excellent meals. From the front of our chalet we were able to see a selection of wild animals literally doing their own thing and it really was brilliant.

If you love nature and a very peaceful place to rest then this lodge is for you. You will enjoy the view of some wildlife attractions. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a pool at the lodge but it is not very clean.
