Victoria Falls Waterfront

Lodge, campground in Livingstone

Sharing space with the luxury resorts along the banks of the Zambezi, this is the only waterfront lodge that caters to budget travellers. For this reason it's a popular place, with a wilderness charm (crocs inhabit a small creek on the property), and a choice of camping, domed tents or alluring riverside chalets. Its pool with decking and bar overlooking the river is unsurprisingly popular at sunset.

It's 4km south of Livingstone, a handy free shuttle service takes you between to the falls and town.
