AF­FORD­ABLE FALLS

Getaway (South Africa) - - Check In -

Shear­wa­ter Vil­lage, open­ing on 15 De­cem­ber, is fill­ing a gap in the mar­ket at Vic­to­ria Falls be­tween lux­ury ho­tels and back­pack­ers or camp­ing. It of­fers en-suite thatched chalets kit­ted out, ho­tel style, with tow­els, crisp white linen and air-con, plus the ‘vil­lage’ has a bar, restau­rant and swim­ming pool. Just out­side the gates, Shear­wa­ter Ad­ven­tures has built in­di­vid­ual stalls for lo­cal cu­rio ven­dors ‘with nice shade and ablu­tions for them to use’ – and it’s a quick walk into town and to the Falls (there is a view of The Smoke that Thun­ders from the prop­erty). Plus there’s ac­cess to all of Shear­wa­ter’s fa­mous ad­ven­ture ac­tiv­i­ties, of course. There are 16 two-sleeper chalets, as well as a camp­site (dome tents can be rented).
