This lodge has everything you could want. Amazing grounds, friendly staff, peace and quite, excitement and great food. The attention to detail is abundant . They organise every detail and the grounds are so relaxing. The staff from the grounds keeper, the reception to the room attendants are so friendly.

Great place to stay right on the Zambezi River. Staff are very friendly & helpful. At our first breakfast we marvelled at an elephant eating in a nearby bush...It made our day! The evening river cruise was enjoyable but the snacks offered were not up to standard. Overall we would definitely recommend this hotel to family & friends.

Rooms are awesome with balcony. Beautiful river and garden view. Late evenings and early morning wild animals on grass. Staff always friendly and helpful. Nice pool. It's very expensive for us from Namibia but it`s beautiful place with great people.

I first want to say how friendly and nice Zimbabweans are. Everybody at the hotel and people we meet on the trip all said hello to you and treated you well.

Stayed there for a number of nights as it was the most reasonable deal on offer, being a South African. The fact that it is on the river makes it a great location. Service was not up to scratch, with a waiter even arguing with us that we must give him the gratuity in cash and not put it on...

So want a very romantic room in Africa, the netting around the turned down bed was awesome. Very Nice room with balcony right on the Zambezi River. Be sure to take the sunset river cruise for Hippo's, croc's and an awesome sunset.

Arrived in the afternoon, check in was swift and they welcomed us with a nice cold drink. The room was spacious and clean which overlooked a garden and river. There is a balcony with seats provided to enjoy the beautiful view. The only issue I had was the reception of the television that was fuzzy. Admittedly I did not make...
