I have been blessed with much travel in my lifetime, and I tell you with no hesitation that this is a true hidden gem. The entire trip was seemless. We were greeted at the Kasane airport by a lovely staff member who whisked us away in a openair jeep, took us through customs process (true Africa experience) then put us...

A travel by boat up the Kassia channel into the Zambezi river brings you to more river with hippos and crocs so it appeared. The boat stopped and our driver informed us we were three minutes away from our destiny, I looked around but saw no buildings, no telltale indication of habitation so where was our home for the next...

This little piece of paradise is a haven for anyone wanting to get away from it all. Surrounded by flowing streams with water cascading over the rocks, it sets a tranquil sense of wellbeing for visitors. 4 large beautifully decorated rooms make this an ideal family Camp. All rooms have a mini bar, coffee station and fans. A huge bathtub...

Wow what an amazing place! My husband and I basically had a second honeymoon! We went fishing, game viewing, boat cruising and enjoyed watching the hippos in the river right outside our bedroom. The food was amazing and we were well looked after. Cannot wait to go back!

The lodge was a real find for us. The rooms were beautiful, and superbly situated overlooking the Zambezi river. Service provided by Godfrey, Imelda, and Stefan (chef) was really very good. Food was of a very high standard. Best of all was the service provided by the flyfishing guide Haydn Willans. The flyfishing was challenging, but world class, and Haydn...

This was our second stop on a two-week tour from Victoria Falls through Botswana in late May of 2014 for two nights. The transfer from Livingstone to Ntwala by road/boat was rather involved, but since it had been pre-arranged, all went very well. A little over an hour to a motorboat that took us into Botswana, maybe a total of...
