A group of 15 of us booked into Ganda Lodge from the 24th Dec to the 27th. We were all highly impressed with the level of friendly and efficient service from the staff, absolutely nothing was too much trouble. We had not previously notified them that we had a vegetarian amongst us and Bernard the chef rose to the occasion...

The overall feel of the lodge is wonderful, is calm, and you are surrounded by bush, wildlife and the feel of Africa. The staff were on point all the time, very friendly, polite and happy to chat and pass the time. My only point would be that an experienced camp manager is onsite to help with meal preperations. The chefs...

We had a fantastic time at Ganda Lodge. The lodge itself was great with 4 beds, 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs. A fan on each floor. Full bathroom downstairs as well as a toilet, basin and shower upstairs too. The upstairs toilet wasn't working but I believed they fixed this the day we left. The rooms are great and with...

Booked our trip a month before. We insisted on 2 separate chalets for 2 couples but we were surprised to have been allocated 1 chalet with 2 rooms (different entrances and bathrooms). The Manager handled the situation well though, offered us free drinks and a night game drive since the lodge was full and there was basically nothing he could...

What a shame! Such a fabulous location spoilt by a few things which would be so easy to overcome eg hot breakfasts served cold, erratic water supply (not related to drought .. In other words, pipes and power related), slack staff who are noisy and use the guests' facilities. Entrance road was poorly maintained. Overall management was poor. On the...

Ganda Lodge is set in Hwange National Park and is a lovely spot to relax and enjoy Zimbabwean hospitality -- not to mention the animals.

We did not really plan on viewing animals and did not research the best place. So we have nothing to compare. Rustic thatched hut. Mosquito net. Nice dining room with OK food. Out-of-the-way place. On its own watering hole (that they made) which attracts animals: wart hogs, impala, baboons, beautiful birds. We enjoyed sitting by the fire they made for...
