Advice on accommodation for 2 nights near Victoria Falls (Zambia side)

Jump to last reply

We are flying into Livinstone for a 2 night stay in mid August 2008 (flights are booked and non-changeable) as part of a longer trip. We had been considering Tongabezi which was showing availability just prior to us booking the flights, but there is now only availibity for the second night. Which would be the best alternative : Stanley Safari Lodge, Thorntree River Lodge, Sussi Lodge, Songwe Village, or other ? We want to see Victoria falls, obviously, but I don't think we want to stop right by them at the Royal Livingstone or the Zambezi Sun. Lots of activities are not important - the accommodation is, but it doesn't have to be mega luxury, ambience and view are more important to us and we enjoy good food and wine! I suppose I could go for 1 night at the Falls and the other at Tongabezi, but I prefer to stay 2 nights at any one place, really. Following this, we will be flying on to Durban for 7 nights self drive around KwaZulu-Natal for which I am just finalising my initial research. What are your thoughts/advice ?

Thanks,

Gaynor
