Mel and Vaughan were wonderful! They picked me up at the bus terminal to ensure a safe and easy arrival. I was included in family outings and braais. The room is beautiful and very clean. I enjoyed having the pool right outside my door. This was exactly what I was looking for in these two weeks.
Absolutely a wonderful weekend with Mel. Was up in Vic Falls to run the marathon and they could not have been more accomodating. They were very easy to deal with prior to departure and extremly hospitable during our stay. Perfect loaction for pre and post race relaxation. Even saw them along the road during the race. I would definetly stay with them again!!!
The landscape, nature, wildlife of Victoria Falls and surroundings is breathtaking! And staying with Mel made me get the maximum out of my short stay. Mel and Warren were great in showing me around, organizing that i could hire a bike, and being always there for questions and suggestions. The bike made a huge difference for me: I had a workshop in Elephant Hills Resort - just 3 km passing through Safari Lodge ... but be careful at/after sunset! I was in the big room which feels very luxurious. In short, it was absolutely fantastic.
Mel and Vaughn were so welcoming. I was traveling alone and they helped me in my itinerary. It made me feel safe knowing locals in the area. The place is a few minutes away from the main streets with the shops and restaurants. But almost all tours in Victoria Falls include transfers, so this won't be a problem.
I stayed with Mel over one of the busiest weekends of the year in Victoria Falls, the marathon weekend. She and Vaughn went out of their way to be helpful, picking me up from the border, dropping me back, and most importantly, getting me to the race on time! She made arrangements for me to have vegetarian meals, and was unstintingly helpful throughout. The cottage is very tastefully decorated, with blue fabrics in the curtains and bedding giving the light inside the rooms a very pleasing soft glow. The bed was perfect, very comfortable and the local peanut butter provided in the kitchen was perfect for breakfast. It was a pleasure to be hosted by them, many thanks!
