A'Zambezi is a four star resort giving five star enjoyment. The only resort on the Zambezi, the thatched villas are arranged in a horseshoe around the large pool and beautifully landscaped gardens. Animals including mongoose, warthogs, monkeys played freely. The rooms were reasonably large, with strong hot showers and the beds were very comfortable. The restaurant provided good hearty home...

I was treated to a long weekend at A'Zambezi for my birthday. Being South African, I was sceptical - how great can a lodge in Zimbabwe really be? Boy, was I pleasantly surprised! From the moment we arrived at A'Zambezi until the moment we left, the friendliness of the staff and their eagerness to make us feel welcome really warmed...

I stayed two nights here with a tour. My room was beautiful with a view of the grounds leading down to the River. Each morning I was up early for coffee which I enjoyed somewhere on the grounds. The buffet was interesting and delicious with some local foods (warthog, crocodile tails) that I had never had before. The first night...

Stayed at A'Zambezi River Lodge, beautifully situated on he banks of the Zambezi, 5 minutes from town. Wonderful property with modern rooms and super friendly staff. Only let down was range and quality of food - à la carte menu had several items out of stock and buffet repetitive.

Smiles all the way from everyone. I read some of the previous reviews before we travelled but found the negative ones to be unjust. I do not think that the staff could have done anything to improve our stay. The restaurant was good and not expensive . We booked our tours with the company that seemed to be connected and...
