A relaxing holiday stay for my family The staff and owner were amazingly kind. It was a lovely and peaceful stay for my family with an 11 year-old son. The location was also good for activities and good restaurants. The only issue was mosquitos as we travelled in December, the rainy season although it didn’t rain so much anyway.

Book this place, it is perfect! Highly recommend staying at The Courtney! This is a newly opened lodge and it was the best find. We were looking for somewhere that felt luxurious and relaxing without the excessive price tags of a lot of Victoria Falls accommodation. This place did not disappoint. The manager and the owners were on hand to ensure our stay was wonderful, they made reservations for a sunset river cruise, rafting and dinner at Dusty Rose which is a traditional experience with a twist and was a great experience we wouldn’t have known about if they hadn’t suggested it. The space is immaculate, clean, and beautifully decorated. And I even went in the pool which is rare, however this one was so clear, and not full of chemicals and wonderfully refreshing, within their beautifully tended gardens which I wish I could recreate at home! And I must also mention that the chef made a lovely dinner for us and we enjoyed breakfast each morning, great flavours and choices. 100% recommend and would stay again without question.

An amazing Vic Falls Experience! What an amazing experience! We would highly recommend the Courtney Lodge if going to Victoria Falls. The staff were friendly, attentive and extremely helpful. Taku, the Hotel Manager, arrange all our excursions, made dinner reservations and catered to our every need. The breakfasts were excellent and they were able to provide me with tasty vegan options. When making our dinner reservations Taku made sure that as a vegan I could be catered for. The rooms were clean and spacious and the hotel is tastefully decorated the relaxation and comfort. Thanks to Robby the grounds are kept immaculate and the pool was a welcome treat at the end of very hot days. All and all our stay was excellent and I cannot make a high enough recommendation.

Wonderful new place to enjoy Incredible! We had the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful new lodge and could not have been more pleased with every aspect. Staff communicated professionally and friendly throughout the reservation process and during our stay. While on site, the Owners and staff took time to communicate with us daily and make sure we had what we needed to enjoy our stay. The property itself is beautiful from room design and furnishings to landscape design and common areas to gather. Very clean, secure, and a great location for visiting local attractions. Don’t pass up the opportunity to stay at this new lodge. Attention to detail from construction to customer care is wonderful. This is a true gem!

PERFECT STAY Beautiful stay. Location is close to all activities but once inside you feel miles away in the lush, serene and safe garden setting. Service and hospitality were lovely with every detail cared for and all activities and transport coordinated for us, as requested. Highly recommend.

Relaxing Stay We found this new lodge for a reasonable price (which is not so easy to find in Vic Falls) for their rooms on our way to Namibia after we've stayed in the bush for a week and wanted to have some comfort for one night. The owners of the lodge were extremely nice and helpful and made it hard for us to leave. Will definitely come back when we'll visit or travel though Vic Falls next time.

Pick of the falls Lodges Superb lodge with great feel and thoughtful staff.. the layout and quality of this lodge is first class and breakfast is as good as any five star hotel in Africa. The rooms are laid out to accomodate groups, aged, families and couples so it is super flexible and well designed. The pool is great in the summer and the grounds are immaculate

Perfect retreat We stayed at the beautiful and peaceful Courtney Lodge for 3 nights, it was amazing; the place is spotless and very well thought out, the rooms are large with the most unbelievably comfortable supersize beds and a delicious breakfast at your convenience. The hosts and their staff were unbelievably helpful, always on hand with sound advice about where to eat/visit etc. and ready to book any activity you needed. Thanks to all at Courtney Lodge for a special welcome and an unforgettable experience. I cannot highly recommend this place enough, we will definitely be back again. Ciaran, Kim, and Conor

A Gem in keeping with the magical Victoria Falls This new property is an absolute gem! Attention to detail is excellent from charger points by the beds to shower hooks in the shower. Huge beds, fantastic breakfasts and hosts who are both hugely welcoming and interesting. Jamie and I wish Clive and Lesley every success with their new venture - a property that sets itself apart from most of the other offerings at the majestic Victoria Falls!!
