Accommodation

 
Jock Safari Lodge
The accommodation was excellent but the food was too americanised plenty of meat but very little else. It was obvious they were playing to the american market.
 
AfricaSky Guest House
The guest house was well furnished and very comfortable. The staff were friendly and made one feel at home. We did have an evening meal on our arrival and the menu was very good.
 
Tongabezi
An excellent place in which to unwind after safaris. Accommodation was very good and staff especially our valet Issac were very good.
 
Okuti Camp
The design of the accommodation is exceptional giving plenty of room and complete privacy. The managers and staff had created an atmosphere of relaxation and enjoyment which makes for the perfect holiday.
 
Linyanti Bush Camp
The tented accommodation was best we have ever stayed in. Plenty of room with a shower/toilet recess and plenty of hot water. The location is very relaxing and one does get the feeling of being very remote and away from the hustle and bustle of life.
 
Kasaka River Lodge
The situation of this Lodge provided the best views looking over the Zambezi. The accommodation is being upgraded and will be even better. The food was well varied and well presnted. The managers and staff were excellent.
 
Kafunta River Lodge
Having stayed at the Lodge on a previous occasion we knew what to expect and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent - having a new chef.
 
Island Bush Camp
The accommodation was as described in the information pack and could not be faulted.
 
Footsteps Camp
The tented accommodation was good, with plenty of hot water available when required. The staff were excellent and the food provided was exceptional. How they manage to cook it in such remote conditions is beyond me and would many a top chef to shame. We were able to do walking and fortunate to ride in a mokoro in the delta.
