Good 6.0
Nice place but customer service needs work
The weather was amazing but seeing how people in groups get treated with a little bit more respect then those who travel by themself. The tent I had was comfortable but I did request a upgrade to a room was told it was fully book then a couple ask the same thing after me and they said I think we have one.

Comfort close to Vic Falls
I enjoyed my stay at the Shearwater Explorers Village. They offered a variety of lodging options from camping, staying in tents, and nice hotel units, all in a resort setting. The main building was a huge open air thatched structure. Shearwater is a large tourist company that offers all sorts of activities and can book others if they don't offer one. Service was excellent, the pool was welcome after a day out. I stayed in a tent, which was under cover and came with a comfortable bed, a table with a light and a fan. It is one of the closest hotels to Victoria Falls and close to the shops of Victoria Falls. Nearby Three Monkeys offered good food at tourist prices. A block or two up the road one could also find less expensive local options as well as groceries. The location was great and I recommend getting the pickup shuttle service, which is less than that of a taxi. The staff were very helpful and the grounds are secured.

Another favorite in Victoria Falls
Great place to stay and close to the River Brewing Co for craft/draft beers and gin tastings. Wasn't able to try their breakfast but the rooms were large enough and clean; and the bedding comfortable. Would definitely go back if the price is right.

Great value, nice chalets, interesting noises
The rooms are tastefully put together, secure and clean. The pool is great and the restaurant and lounge area is comfortable. I also found the staff very helpful. There was quite a bit of construction noise, for work that I gather was supposed to have ended before I arrived. It's obviously not going on for ever, so not the end of the world. However, the noise you might have to get used to is helicopter noise from commercial flights over the Falls (as the hotel basically backs on to the Falls). This shouldn't matter too much, though, if you're spending your days out and about. At night, you can hear the Falls, which I found quite nice.
