Our stay at Game Fish Lodge was fantastic! We were greeted by Leslie when we arrived, she showed us the property and gave us a cell phone, programmed with a trusted taxi drivers phone number. The lodge is a little ways from town, so this way you can have someone pick you up whenever! Plus, they give you coupons to...

We came to the Game Fish Lodge by accident and it was the best accident that happened to us in Zanzibar. The owners – Lesley and Colin are the best hosts you can imagine. They took care of us like we were guests in their home. Both of them are excellent cooks, so we didn't have to bother with looking...

We can honestly say this has been our favourite hotel and holiday ever. We booked two nights and ended up staying six. Had it not been full by then, Colin and Lesley, our wonderful hosts, might never have gotten rid of us. The food is amazing, both the dinners Colin and Lesley will cook for you, but also the breakfasts...

Last Time Colin took us out for a two day fishing trip and we could learn how to catch and land a 30kg. Maui. Unforgetable the time together. Come...

I elected to stay at game fish lodge because of the rave reviews. Really I should have concentrated on the negative ones. I don't understand how anyone can "feel at home" over there and one reviewer really hit the nail with the fact this could be the result of a Stockholm syndrome where in the aftermath you feel close to...

Lesley Z, Owner at Game Fish Lodge, responded to this review

Unfortunately, this is one of the negative things about reviews on TripAdvisor. A lot of reviews are not authentic and are written by people either by friends to boost your page, opposition hotels, or by people that never stay there or eat there. Just about anyone can write a review good or bad and unfortunately many hotels use these reviews...

It was a great experience to stay at Colin and Lesley's place. They are very friendly and the relaxing and feeling like home experience was something that we really want to find in our trips. Food is very good and fresh though the portions are huge. It was very helpful that Colin offered us coupons for taxi so we could...

What a great experience, we stayed 2 nights with Colin and Leslie and were made to feel completely at home. Relaxed, beautiful spot on the beach, quiet and tranquil with no beach boys bugging you outside. One of the best parts of our stay was the phenomenal food, which is prepared fresh and by hand and in fantastic quantities. The...

Colin and Leslie are just adorable hosts. The location of their property is excellent in front of the ocean. A real gem to relax and I would add enormous value for money.
