Batonka is set in lush gardens and offers a tranquil haven away from the bustle of town, but still within walking distance of the main attractions, only 2.1km (1.3 miles) from the mighty Victoria Falls.

The main lodge offers indoor and outdoor dining, a cosy lounge and beautiful verandah opening out onto the surrounding gardens.

There are twenty-seven rooms with elegant, contemporary style décor that encompasses Victoria Falls’ colonial past and African flavour.

Facilities at Batonka include a sparkling swimming pool, curio shop and activities desk.
