Comfort close to Vic Falls
I enjoyed my stay at the Shearwater Explorers Village. They offered a variety of lodging options from camping, staying in tents, and nice hotel units, all in a resort setting. The main building was a huge open air thatched structure. Shearwater is a large tourist company that offers all sorts of activities and can book others if they don't offer one. Service was excellent, the pool was welcome after a day out. I stayed in a tent, which was under cover and came with a comfortable bed, a table with a light and a fan. It is one of the closest hotels to Victoria Falls and close to the shops of Victoria Falls. Nearby Three Monkeys offered good food at tourist prices. A block or two up the road one could also find less expensive local options as well as groceries. The location was great and I recommend getting the pickup shuttle service, which is less than that of a taxi. The staff were very helpful and the grounds are secured.

The staff were so friendly and helpful! The overall atmosphere is very relaxing and I enjoyed being there. I would suggest getting a room away from the backup generator which is very noisy. The staff said I could switch rooms but I thought it would be ok and regretted not following their advice.

The bartender was slow and rude waiting for 20mins to get a drink. When we finally talk to someone they didn't seem to care about providing service to us. So we left without getting service.
