    Hi Cindy. Batonka is 2.1 Km from the Falls so it can be easily walked or it is $5 by taxi. You can to both sides Zim & Zam without a guide. Hope this helps

Hi, we would like to spend two nights in Zimbabwe after 8 days of safari in Tanzania. How far is the hotel from Victoria Falls? We'd like to see the falls from both countries, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Can we do it without a guide?

  • Response from TJames818Reviewed this property
    About 10 minutes in a taxi to the falls. The hotel also does a shuttle into the town. No need for a guide.

Hi, We’re currently planning a 3 week trip for 2019 that includes a 3 night stay at the Batonka Guest House. As we’ll have already completed a week of safari, we’re wondering if there are any laundry facilities at the Lodge or nearby.

    Barbara, I believe that Batonka has laundry facilities...but I suggest emailing the manager, Adrian, who will certainly get back to you right away with the exact answer.
