Pamusha Lodge Victoria falls

We adore this cosy, suburban 17-roomed bed and breakfast for its warm hospitality and budget friendly rates. The restaurant is open twenty-four hours a day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Try the ‘chesa nyama’ (barbequed meat), usually served with a side of tasty ‘moroko’ made from a local green vegetable called ‘kovo’. It’s delicious!

If you tire of the sparkling pool and verdant garden setting venture out to explore the Victoria Falls National Park and Victoria Falls town, only 3 kilometres (approximately 2 mi) away. Here, you will find all that you might need in town including ATMs, a chemist, shops, a few restaurants and cafes plus some great little curio stalls. Zimbabwean wood carvings are probably the best in the region.

Remember to haggle a bit but not too much…people must still make a living! Visiting the Falls is the obvious highlight. Bear in mind that you will have to pay the park entrance fee in US dollars to get in as this can’t be paid in advance. There are plenty of guides who escort you around the park and this can be booked either in advance with us or through the lodge. Otherwise, it’s an easy stroll along the path opposite the falls if you want to go it alone with a guidebook! Top tip…take something waterproof as the spray can be like walking through a rainforest in a rainstorm. One activity we would highly recommend however is a flight in a helicopter over the Falls – ideally around sunset.

Only from the air can you see the Falls as one continuous natural marvel. If you haven’t booked a helicopter flight yet and it is something you would like to do, we can do that for you. Request a specific time of day rather than leaving that to chance when you get to Vic Falls.
