4/10 Fair

Disappointing hotel although quite nicely located.
The room was clean enough but there .was no deep bath or fridge, as described, in our room. I did not see any fitness centre either. The restaurant room was dismal and the breakfast was basic and without choice. We were there for 3 days and in the evening we had to go and search out someone to come and make us some dinner. An omlette seemed to be the limit of their culinary skills. However, the most important issue was the lack of communication. Firstly, before we left for Zimbabwe, I enquired about their airport shuttle service but got no reply. On arrival, we made our own way to the hotel only to be told that they had sent somebody to collect us. The worst thing was they booked us a taxi for 6am to take us to another hotel where we were joining a 4 week safari across East Africa. It didn't come and it was only due to the kindness and luck that some builders arrived at the lodge and gave us a lift in their truck. Otherwise, we would have missed our trip!!

6/10 Good

Useful connection to activities company
Mopani Lodge is ok as a place to stay. Reasonable comfort and some good facilities, e.g. a swimming pool. It is located about 4 km from the centre of Vic Falls which means it is peaceful but not walkable for restaurants etc. However, staff are helpful with transport when needed. Breakfast is basic. For us, by far its biggest plus point is that it seems to be part of Falcon Safaris, with whom we had booked a number of activities. As part of the same company, all the practicalities worked like a dream, from airport shuttle service, to guided tours of the falls, sunset river cruise, and Chobe national park. This was what really made our trip the huge success it was, and being based at Mopani Lodge was a winner. This was a special trip for us to celebrate our golden wedding, and it more than met our expectations.

2/10 Poor

Arrived at the lodge and copy of reservation was given to the staff. The staff was a bit puzzled of our arrival and made a couple of phone calls. It turns out that they were all booked, but the rooms in the bottom floor were unoccupied with the doors open. A lady arrived and said that we're being moved to the lodges sister company, guest house. It was inconvenient because we has to change all of our shuttle pick up for our activities in Victoria Falls. Careful booking Mopani Lodge.

2/10 Poor

NOT worthy of 3-stars - 1 star at best
No air conditioning, no screens, holes in the mosquito netting and only for one bed. This is one star at best. My wife had dozens of mosquito bites in the morning. I can't imagine how this place got a 3-star rating.

Nice stay
Mopani Lodge is about a 20-minute walk from the centre of Victoria Falls. We were met promptly at reception and shown to our room, which was on the second floor. It had a fan, and mosquito nets, which was good as the windows didn't have screens. The wifi was a little slow, but worked. The breakfast in the morning was more than I expected - bacon, eggs, toast and baked beans.
