We stayed in Eagles Rest in February. Nice location, overlooking the lake. All chalets have lake view and a large terrace. The place is in need of some refurbishment and also lacking proper management (we saw none during our stay). Be aware that the edge of the water is quite a distant from the rooms due to the low water...

Beautiful chalets with views over Kariba. Really top notch place to stay. One could spend days looking over the lake. Well worth a stop. Lovely pool, bar overlooking "beach" . Great idea to have your chalet with a kitchen attached . Braai area overlooking lake. Breakfast was ok, breakfast room could do with a clean.

This is a quaint lodge over looking the bay onto the Lake. All the rooms have excellent views of the bay and each room has self catering options with a pleasant verandah on which to relax. The fully stocked bar on the beach has a warm and friendly atmosphere and all the staff were very friendly and the hosts make...

It was lovely and peaceful, with fantastic views. The campsite was simple, but good with wonderful views of Lake Kariba, and we had a super time. We saw crocodiles and hippos, and went fishing from a canoe. The swimming pool was clean, the staff friendly, the canoeing was also at an excellent price. The bar had a really relaxing area...

Eagle's Rest is a nice getaway from Lusaka. Being on the water is a blessing and a curse when camping. There are beautiful skies, hippos and crocs that can be seen from a campsite. During the day it is often peaceful but when night descends the local fisher folk fire up their boat motors that bang, ping, and chug to...

This is a wonderful campsite on Lake Kariba. The pitches are well spaced out. They are basic in that they have neither electricity nor water. The ablution blocks are a bit dated, but very clean. There is Wi-Fi at the Beach Bar, which is also a nice place to just hang out. We didn't try the restaurant nor did we...

What I was promised upon booking was far from what we found. We have 3 toddlers and found our room not conducive for small children. There were ants in the room and the porch was not the cleanest. The shower could have been cleaner too. Beautiful view but we were forced to move to another lodge when management was unable...
