A tranquile setting
Arrived here after a self drive trip through Botswana tired and dirty and were welcomed with a cold drink and warm smile. The check in was quick and painless. Were quickly shown to our rooms and got settled in. The grounds were well maintaned and nicely balanced between shade and sun and the pool provided a refreshing dip. The staff were attentive but descrete providing exellent service. The restuarant was well worth a visit in the evening providing delicious food. All in all an exellent stay and would most definately recommend to one and all.

Staying at Batonka was a truly wonderful experience, we had a perfect time. The facilities and service was excellent and all the additional help with the taxi and liaising with the adventure businesses went above and beyond.

Pride of ZIM
We loved our stay at Batonka; our only wish was that we'd have stayed 3 nights in Zim instead if 2! The staff are amazingly friendly, food is good and they provide help with arranging tours to do. They have a in-house taxi they use which is reasonable and trustworthy. Staff were more an accommodating to any requests and Adrian, the manager I believe, was always seen talking to us or other guests. We would 100% recommend and stay again!
Deven, ca2 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
This is a relaxing and pleasant property with a good restaurant and a nice pool area. The staff is very friendly, attentive and helpful. The lodge is a bit outside of town. However, it is walkable and a taxi costs only about 5 dollars to get you to either Victoria Falls National Park or the town. The staff also arranges a variety of tours. The evening game drive they set up for us was excellent. We would stay there again.

Quiet and Relaxing!
Our stay at the Batonka Lodge was outstanding! We were greeted upon our arrival by Allison who filled us in on all we needed to know about the lodge and she had great tips regarding restaraunts, activities and getting around town. The lobby and grounds/pool area are beautiful The room was spacious and nicely appointed as was the bathroom/shower. Breakfast on the veranda in the morning was a very nice way to start the day and the food was good. The lodge is within walking distance to the center of town. We walked everywhere (and felt very safe!) including Victoria Falls and the Victoria Falls Bridge. The staff is more than happy to make transportation arrangements and lunch and dinner reservations for you. We did not eat lunch or dinner at Batonka during our stay but it is available. The only negative we encountered was when we had them launder items for us we felt it was rather on the expensive side. I would highly recommend the Batonka Lodge if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing atmosphere with exceptional service.

Great place, would recommend
Very nice place, friendly staff, excellent area to walk to and from town (during daylight hours only - nighttime too many wild animals). Comfortable rooms and beds. We enjoyed walking in the neighbourhood as well.
