Kanana Camp
A luxurious camp that had a friendly atmosphere and was very well managed. We had very personal service and were able to choose which activiites we wished to do each day. Often there was just the two of us on a drive. I needed a special diet and the staff were tremendous, ensuring that I always had plenty of delicious food.
Sango Safari Camp
This was great camp! It doesn't describe itself as luxurious but it is very comfortable and well equipped. The staff were very friendly and clearly enjoy their work. Most live in the local village. The solar panels provide gentle lighting after dark and the bucket showers work really well. Just ask and hot water appears minutes later! This was probably the favourite of the 3 camps that we stayed at. My complicated dietary requirements didn't phase them either!
Waterberry Lodge
A beautiful lodge in a fantastic setting. The staff were helpful and friendly and were really knowledgeable about the local area and its wildlife. The sunset cruise on the Zambesi was a marvellous way to start our holiday! I needed a special diet and this posed no problems for the staff who repeatedly came up with really good food! Highly recommended!
