    Wonderful relaxed lodge overlooking the Zambezi. We had a brilliant 3 night stay and the hotel staff organised all our activities for us before we arrived so the whole trip ran very smoothly.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Nurtured by the best team in the best location !

    We had high expectations and these were exceeded by some. The warmth of welcome, the spirit of the team, the beauty of the layout and location were simply the best. Our lodge ticked all the boxes and more. Probably the most comfortable bed in the world ! We only really understood the camp's peace and tranquillity on the few brief occasions that we heard the scurrying of the playful monkeys. River Club and the experienced, charming and cheerful team were an ideal springboard from which to fully engage in the local attractions. These, of course, led by The Falls though also including surprisingly exciting safaris, village walks and so much more. I think our favourite time was "the sundowner on The Great Zambesi River" with our great guide, Mack. We shared this experience with some other super guests. Another bonus of this camp being that it unsurprisingly attracts such super, interesting, fun and like-minded guests. The stunning sight of The Great Zambesi River from the camp grew in power and significance the longer our stay. Thank you Peter, Jonathan, Charmaine and your terrific team.
