Victoria Falls is a very expensive town and accommodation is quite expensive. Wild Trekkers was averagely priced and I have to admit, we did get good value for the money. The lodge seems to be under renovation but rooms are cosy, clean and comfortable. The staff was really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was quite good. It was more of a home experience than guest accommodation. We requested to have our dinner in our room while we watched satellite tv and we cuddled up in front of the tv just as if we were home. They have fans in place of air conditioning and that was quite quaint. Bath water was hot, parking was available, albeit unpaved and the lodge is a 10 - 15 minute leisurely walk from the actual falls and an 8 minute walk from town. I highly recommend this lodge if you are on a budget but still wish to do better than back packer lodges.
As a local tourists I deserve to be treated well like any other tourist. After paying premium the lodge didn't deliver on the comfort, fridge, dstv and served terrible breakfast. I used wild trekkers for the carnival from 30/12/17.
This lodging should reduce prices because its not at all worth their charge. The reception was terrible i was recieved into a lower level room than what i paid for the room was originally a toilet before the owner thought to make it a room without even knocking out the small bathroom window. This roon was an after thought by a host who only cares about the money not service offerings. It was very disrespectful of the host to be so unwilling to offer good service. Budget hotel doesnt translate to terrible service.
My travel companions were given a room just as bad and to top it off had blood. Imagine how disgusting and disappointed a guest feels cleaning blood. What does house keeping actually do then?
The website claims that there is DSTV and fridge but well thats just so u make a payment that is non existent. Breakfast is bad and atvone time all the residents refused certain elements of the breakfast and got another bad though better substitute.
What troubles me is also the selective approach to clients where she gives the impression that there are clients that are more important than others. For example an international client is more important than a local client but they still pay the same.
Please I would rather send murderers and rapists to jail over WILD TREKKERS LODGE not because they are criminals but because jail is more humane. Anyone who says different is lying dont waste money and time on this dump.
