With a few changes from my last visit almost 10 years ago. The place is peaceful, serene and as usual the view of Lake Kariba does not disappoint despite the noticeable reduction in the water level. However, service is still good. For those who cannot do without internet service, connectivity was good the entire period I was here. a little...

I really enjoyed my stay here. From the rooms, to the food, to the staff. As for the view, I could stay there forever. It's so serene and peaceful, and the air, so fresh. The rooms are air conditioned with a spacious bathroom and a mini fridge. In the room, you can either use the air con or the fan....

I have explored nine places of lodging on both shores of Lake Kariba and rated this top. Exquisite executive rooms on the top offer awesome views of the lake. Excellent views from area surrounding the helipad.

Nice, clean and quiet place. Best views on Kariba lake, clean tiny pool, friendly management. Wide range of options to spend time nicely, boat cruises, conference rooms, enough parking space. But rates are extremely high in correspondence with the service. I'd come back if it was twice cheaper.

The view is fantastic (next to the lake) and the rooms are good and clean. All rooms with air condition and enough space. The executive rooms are well arranged with big whirlpool. The breakfast buffet was okay. The staff were not too motivated and especially for dinner they had big problems. It was never possible to get the food for...

Lake Safari Lodge was a disappointment. The food was poor, rooms were a bit run down and the service was very hard to come by. It's the kind of place where you see a half dozen waiters standing around near the bar and you have to get up and walk over to them to ask for a beverage. Lake Safari...

The place is a beautiful place with a nice view of the lake. The rooms are clean and we'll serviced. It's great if you need time to simply unwind. The members of staff are helpful and the food is alright. The lodge can help arrange a boat ride if you need one. Side note: the area is warm in general

Lake siavonga is a fantastic place. The view is amazing, but the experience was awful - thanks to an incompetent lodge manager. 1) we were maid to 100% in advance while people who checked in with us paid for their accommodation later. I suppose that treatment was something to do with the fact that we were a mixed group 2)...
