    Very good for the single traveler, as well as couples. Although I saw travel groups, they were small. It would be more difficult for larger groups, in my humble opinion. If you're vegetarian, bring your own food.

    We enjoy our stay in the Victoria Falls Backpackers. It is very beautiful especially the garden. It is beautifully decorated. J is very helpful. Although we arrived late at night and he was off duty, he still helped us. Thanks a lot!
