Place is close to the falls and border. Some bugs were in the room and my kids were afraid of them.

Awesome design of huts and lodges with plenty of character giving the whole place a real Zambian feel.

The renovated rooms are a huge improvement. Very nice. The dining room is very dull, however, I heard it is soon to be renovated. Dining staff need a lot more training. One was attentive but others very slow. Bar staff were much better trained, friendly and attentive. Grounds staff spent a lot of time leaning on rakes and looking at phones. Phones should be handed in and used only on breaks. Then elephant poo may not sit blocking footpaths for 3 days. Fantastic playground for kids.

10/10 Exceptional

A beautiful, peaceful location along the Maramba River. Very clean, very professional, inside the elephant corridor—we got to see a family of elephants feeding right outside the fence! The restaurant food was absolutely delicious. We sat outside as the sunset each evening, where we saw hippos, crocodiles and monkeys, lulled by the soft accompaniment of frogs and wildlife sounds. My daughter and I stayed 3 nights in a luxury tent—very clean, comfortable beds draped with mosquito netting, and a warm water outdoor shower made it extra special.

Many parts of Zambia suffer from loadshedding. Not this establishment. They have a quiet genset that all the difference. This is my favourite hotel in Livingstone. Excellent value for money. Bonaventure and Kelvin at the bar are always do entertaining.

Everything was great! Staff and our tents were great and fun. Don’t expect a 4 star resort if you do that’s your fault not theirs. The only negative is it seems they have some food safety concerns at the restaurant. They reuse their yogurt after it’s been sitting out till 10am the used the same bowl for 3 days. Also with power outages they don’t have proper refrigeration. Only eat cooked food at the restaurant!
