Only 1 minute from town and 10 minutes from the Victoria Falls, Shoestrings Backpackers is the closest to both. A lively place with a bar and restaurant, DSTV for sports lovers, swimming pool, restaurant and 24-hour security. There is a basic kitchen for self-catering and internet facilities. Accommodation includes camping, dorms (with shared showers and toilets) and double/twin and single rooms (with private showers and toilets).
The bar is often busy with guests and locals, and there's often a party atmosphere until midnight, especially at weekends, so ear-plugs needed if you are in a tent and hoping to go to sleep early!
Shoestrings is a great place to stay if you are backpacking and looking to meet others, with many staying for a while to explore the Falls and enjoy the party atmosphere. Interactive drumming and traditional dancing are regular entertainment features, with the occasional live band or DJ.
