Victoria Falls and the nearby town of Livingstone have something of a “backpacking culture”. This is most probably due to the large amount of young tourists visiting Victoria Falls in search of adventure- based activities. The backpackers and hostels are very popular low-cost accommodation options. Many offer the service of booking adventure activities throughout the area.

The types of accommodation you will find include en- suite rooms, bunk dorms, twin rooms and camping; perfect if you are on a budget. Backpackers and hostels are often regarded as budget accommodation and are suited to all ages, but especially young travellers and those young at heart!

Facilities often on offer include a bar, restaurant, pool table, braai/ BBQ area, swimming pool and often WI- Fi and even massage and beauty salons!

Below you will find a selection of backpackers and hostels located on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls. Many of these backpackers and hotels are located in the quaint town of Livingstone (close to Victoria Falls), while some may be located closer to the actual falls.

Please note that “Rates From” could be fully inclusive (may include activities such as game drives and walking trails for example) on some listings and not on others. Contact the establishment you are interested in for specific rates.
