    BRH is very much an upmarket B&B home-stayish experience rather than a tourist lodge or hotel. Rooms, and management style are a tad quirky, but overall we had a good experience. Don't expect a modern bedroom or bathroom; or decent wifi. While the place is...More

    It can be very difficult for guests to adjust to Africa when it is their first experience and they have a fear of spiders and any other insects. Coming to stay at the end of the rainy season all guests are sure to encounter them....More

    Yes, the lodge is a bit out of town and getting into and back from Livingstone will add to the cost but if you plan carefully you can limit the travelling. The huge bonus is that you can sit on the patio watching the abundant...More
