          A tranquil two night stay after a long overland Safari, this lodge was the perfect choice. A lovely setting for breakfast, quiet and comfortable pool area, friendly staff and walking distance from the Falls.

          After a long flight this is a great place to relax. Close to the Falls themselves this is a very well run hotel. The breakfast was excellent and the staff very friendly. Perhaps the only criticism was the small swimming pool.

          We accept both Visa and Mastercard. Bringing cash (in small denominations due to change problems) is also advisable.
