Price for this property is overpriced. I compared value for money against a hotel my friends were staying at which was Dzimbahwe Hotel . They were paying much less than we were and the rooms were double the size with much better facilities. The swimming pool was not fit for a swim. They only have four rooms in total. The manager said that the property is being sold. We do not recommend this property in its current condition.

Lovely lodge in Victoria Falls
Very welcoming lodge about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Victoria Falls Town. Lovely garden and a nice room equipped with both air conditioning and a fan. The manager of the lodge (Margie) is the life & sole of the lodge. She is very knowledgeable and very helpful. English breakfast was included in the price. Only negative was that the lodge is in need of some investment to update some of the furnishings, especially around the pool area.

The lodge is being run on a tight budget but the service provided by Margie was excellent, especially recommendations on local restaurants and tours. She went out of her way to make our stay memorable. I fear the lodge has been sold to new owners so cannot comment on future.

4/10 Fair

Too far away from any restaurants or shops. Swimming pool wasn't clean enough to use. Bed springs could be felt in the mattress. Towels need replacing. Gardens were well kept and breakfast was decent. Safe and quiet.

Only 2 people were there to help. They were warm and welcoming. One was the caretaker of the property, a black gentleman. The other was the cleaner and cook, a young black lady.

Good choice for a short stay
Mandebele lodge was a good choice for a 2 night stay in Victoria Falls. The staff was outstanding and the manager went out of her way to assist us in arranging tours and restaurants. Our only complaints with the lodge were the beds were uncomfortable and the Internet needs a range extender. Internet is good inside the reception area but is weak in the bungalows. The beds need a mattress added on top of the bed springs. Our beds only had a small piece of foam laying on top of the box springs. This is very uncomfortable for aging lodgers.

Would stay again if visiting this area
Mandabele Lodge is in a quiet spot about 5 minutes walk to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Margie the manager is fantastic and really does all she can to make guests feel comfortable. The breakfasts here are lovely and rooms comfortable and spacious. There is also a pool in the grounds. An excellent place to stay and only about 12 miles from the airport.
