The lodge is located 5 kms from the walls on the bank of the Zambezi. The rooms are located in a beautiful garden and the pool area is nice aswell. The rooms are clean, but very small and in a double room there is only a queensize bed, what is pretty cosy when you are both tall... The bathroom is... More

Stayed in river view room. Room is small. Bed most uncomfortable and the pillows too. Asked for different pillows but no one attended to the request. Food not up to 4 star standard. Dining chairs grubby and need a good clean. Staff very friendly and smile all the time.

The hotel is situated right next to the river, and we even took a river cruise from them, which was quite memorable because of all the wild animals we were able to see during it. I don't think it is close to the Victoria Falls itself, but it is not that important because transportation was provided from the hotel. The... More
