Client Rating for Zimbabwe 5/5 from 3 reviews

What an incredible location and the staff were wonderful. We’d organized some of our own activities for the day including The Devil’s Pool and an evening River Cruise and the staff at the lodge sorted out a driver to synchronize everything. Just great.
