My husband and I needed a place to stay in Victoria Falls last year to celebrate his sister's birthday. A friend of mine recommended Vic Falls Homestay and that was the beginning of a fabulous few days. Bruce and Clive organised transport to and from the airport (very useful as my luggage had been lost on the first flight), and helped us totally unwind at Reynard House. Vic Falls Homestay was so beautiful, cool and peaceful; the perfect place to relax and from which to enjoy everything. They cooked us meals, gave us great tips on where to find restaurants and which activities we might find exciting! I did the Gorge Swing which is something I will always thank Clive for - without him I don't think I would have had the courage to do something so completely outside my comfort zone, but which I am so glad I did - Knocked one off the bucket list :) We certainly hope to visit Vic Falls Homestay again one day. Thanks Bruce & Clive!

I was in Victoria Falls in late June and booked a few nights with this home stay. I was so pleased with my entire experience. Victoria Falls in itself is such an amazing place to see and Bruce and Clive made it even better. They were always ready to offer advice on the best activities to do in the town, including the ones only the locals knew about. They took their guests up to watch the sunset, which was one of my favorite activities. They truly seemed happy if their guests were getting the best experience they could and I really appreciated this. I not only feel like I had a great place to stay, but I have also make 2 new livelong friends! You will not be disappointed with this experience.

My partner, Cody and I needed a place to stay for a few night whilst in Vic Falls and we were told that Clive and Bruce ran a beautiful homestay and they were not wrong. We were welcomed into their beautiful home with a cup of tea and were given the low down on all the things to do and places to eat! Clive and Bruce made us feel so welcome and were great in giving advice and suggesting activities, as well as that we were given many friendly discounts thanks to their connections. We wouldn't have had nearly as good a time if not for them! We highly recommend that anyone looking for a warm, cosy and homely place to stay contact Clive and Bruce!

Our two families of 4 (including 4 teens) were fortunate enough to stay in the Reynard home in early August 2016. The home is fabulous but what makes it even more amazing are the owners, Bruce and Clive. Upon our arrival, Bruce and Clive made us feel right at home and went above and beyond to ensure we had the perfect stay. They provided a cell phone for us so we could call them with any questions we had or when we needed a ride somewhere. They shared their passion for their town with us and stayed with us at the airport when drama broke out around our flight home. The home is lovely – a perfect spot to relax and be together. It was a very comfortable home for the 8 of us and had everything we needed to enjoy our last few days of vacation.

We had decided that 5 nights of camping in Botswana should be proceeded by 2 nights in Cape Town and then finishing our adventure with 2 nights in Victoria Falls. November can be very hot so it was very important to end our trip with good comfort and very few complications. Our Renard House hosts provided everything and more! This included a flawless ground transfer from Kasane to Victoria Falls, making reservations (with plenty of good advice but no pressure to book), and providing transportation to anything including airport. This quickly built into a trusted relationship with our hosts that resulted in good friendship and a perfect end to our holiday. Bruce and Clive have become like family and we can't wait to return!

From the moment we got in touch with Clive his passion and professionalism shone through. We were fortunate enough to stay at Vila Victoria in December 2016 and will be back. We had an exceptional memorable stay where Clive and Bruce went out of their way to make sure we got to see everything we wanted to and even organised all our activities.
The house itself is perfect. The rooms are tastefully decorated, clean and extremely comfortable. The garden is stunning, the pool was warm and their knowledge of the local area is surreal.

We arrived at Victoria Falls Airport to be greeted by Clive. Immediately we hit it off and enjoyed our trip to Reynard House. Once at Reynard House we met Bruce. Let me tell you, these two gentlemen are some of the nicest you will ever meet. They welcomed us into their home, offered some of the best advice for the area (definitely go and see the Falls at sunrise!!!) and made us feel like the Victoria Falls was our home. I must make a special mention to Sylvia. Simply amazing & she cooks one of the nicest breakfasts!

We recently stayed at Reynard House and Villa Victoria as part of our post wedding celebration in South Africa! There we 18 of us between two houses and Clive and Bruce swept us off our feet! From the moment we landed they were at the airport to greet us and take care of everything. They showed us where to go and when and not one activity was a disappointment. The dinner cruise was spectacular! Both houses were wonderful for family hanging around and spending time but also had plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. I can't recommend Clive and Bruce more than anything - and Sylvia!!! We will absolutely be back!

We stayed for four days. Bruce & Clive made us feel so welcome. We felt we were staying with friends. They organised every thing for us. The house has every thing you could need. The pool is immaculate, but a bit cool at this time of the year.
Totally recommend this house.

Bruce and Clive's house is beautiful and it is a gift that they share it with guests. We stayed there with another family of three and our hosts made sure that everything was perfect. Also took us to a couple of activities, and we thoroughly enjoyed a David Livingstone talk from Clive. Cannot recommend this house enough: there is a little store just up the road with everything you need. I hope all visitors treat the house with the love and care that Bruce and Clive do, and that they showed to us when we were there.

Bruce and Clive you made our Christmas vacation an unforgettable one. We will talk about our time at your house and the new friends we made for years to come. From the first time our paths crossed on the internet to our actual first meeting you both made us feel like family, thank you. Clive, the excursions you put together for us far exceeded our expectations. Our trip to Chobe was magical, both the land and water safaris exceeded anything we could have wished for. The Boma was super fun and we all got to beat our own drum (lol). Victoria Falls is a magnificent wonder of the world, we liked it better than Niagara Falls. Victoria Falls is so natural and untouched in every way.
You went above and beyond during such a busy season. P.S. our Huange experience was off the charts.
We had the best of times, thank you for everything. We all miss Sylvia so much, she is a gem! From the Penney family we send our love.

This is one of those times when there are just not enough stars available to rate something. It's not just that we loved our facilities but that the whole stay was like nothing we have experienced before; Clive and Bruce took care of us as if we were long-lost family who had finally come to visit. They suggested an incredible itinerary that reflected their intimate knowledge of the area and the local people -- all of whom they seem to know. Clive and Bruce are both delightful, interesting and funny. Our times with them were among the highlights of our visit. Finally, if you can squeeze it into your itinerary, attend Clive's talk about David Livingstone at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge.

Staying at Reynard House was a far better experience than we dreamed. I am so glad we did not stay in a hotel.
The staff (Sylvia and her daughter) spoiled us by doing our laundry and cooking breakfast each day. I wish I could have taken them home with me!
The house is beautiful and Bruce and Clive treated us all like old friends.
This truly was the trip of a lifetime for our family, and I can’t thank you enough for insisting that we “make a plan” for activities. We were all able to do exactly what we wanted, and it was all choreographed for us.

Can’t express how good this place is
The staff Sylvia and her daughter Are fantastic and the owners Bruce and Clive are the fonts of all knowledge.
We were made welcome from the second we walked through the door
Nothing was too much trouble and everyone worked so hard to make our stay so memorable

Im Reynard House fehlt es an nichts. Großzügige Wohneinheiten, parkähnliche Außenbereich mit Pool und ein Engel namens Sylvia, die sich mit hohem Einsatz um Haus und Hof kümmert. Sie sorgt für ein blitzsauberes Haus und macht bei Bedarf auch ein gutes Frühstück. Ihre freundliche Art begeistert. Die Gastgeber Clive und Bruce bieten auf Wunsch die Organisation eines Vollprogramms, das dem unkundigen Touristen Fehlplanungen und Wartezeiten erspart. Sie kennen alle wichtigen Leuten in den Parks und an den Grenzen und begleiten bei Bedarf dort, wo es haken könnte. Wir waren total begeistert und können diesen Rundumservice wärmstens empfehlen. Vielen Dank für Alles!
