I had a major billing issue with the Lodge, that required numerous emails in the month leading up to our arrival.

2 nights of memorable stay felt short. Erected at Zambezi river bank amid spectacular landscape, it could never go wrong to experience African safari. Located about 15 minutes drive from the airport and 5 minutes drive to Vic-falls. The reception was warm, friendly and professional.
