Although some guests complained about the lack of variety with regards to meals, we were surprised at the fare on offer, so far from any shops. Every meal\snack was...

When we arrived at the lodge to a chorus of welcome songs sung by the staff, we knew immediately that this aws something special. Stepping into the main area, we saw huge African elephants and Hippos grazing less than 100 meters from our position. Food is very good and lots of it. Room was comfortable and well appointed.

After a bumpy and windy 30 minute plane ride we were welcomed at the lodge with a very welcome refreshing towel and drink. We were fortunate to be upgraded to the "honeymoon suite" which meant that we had a plunge pool and outdoor bath and shower and were at the extreme perimeter of the lodge. After the evening meal we...

We stayed this lodge after another Belmond Safaris collection - Savute Elephant Lodge stay. Each lodge has different flavor each other!! We liked this lodge because we could have helicopter 30min tour and spa massage. Food and Beverladge was nice as well as its landscape. We hope we would go back again in the near future.

Accessed by light aircraft from Maun, guests are met by 4-wheel drives and transported the short distance from the dirt airstrip to Khwai River Lodge. There you are warmly welcomed by traditional African...

One of the biggest surprises was the quality of the food at our safari lodges. Absolutely outstanding. Fabulous guides and lovely rooms that I can't really believe were "tents." Our trip exceeded our wildest dreams. I do think we were overstimulated at times from all the wildlife as pointed out by our marvelous guides. The guides (including Moses) are so...
