          I am planning two nights at the lodge in September and would like to know how long it will take to go the Livingstone airport for my flight to Cape Town. A bit concerned that the transit from Savuti lodge to Tongabezi and then to Livingstone Airport may take up too much time and we will not have enough time to enjoy Tongabezi. Thanks

          How was the devil's pool? We'll be in Zambia mid December and thinking of doing this if the water levels are still low...I've read so many different opinions from totally scary and insane to not a big deal. Guess it depends in part on water levels but how was your experience? And did you go with Tongabezi? We are staying there.
