Ww stopped here on our way to Kapishya and then again after 2 days ordered takeaway when we moved from Kapishya to Kasanka.Both time we ordered chicken pizza and vegetable pizza.The 1st time it came after 1.30 hours and the next time we ordered takeaway to save time but still had to wait for 15 minutes as they put it in oven only after we came to pick it.The pizza both time was okay.First time it had no salt and next time in tgeir haste the base was not very well cooked.I feel they can do better with good service(the waiter had to be requested to bring cutlery and extra plates) and better time management .The woodstove pizza does take time to heat up so better keep it warm around lunch time when customers are expected.

We are scout leaders from the UK travelling from Namibia to Kenya between Jan 2020 and March 2020 raising funds for a children's home scouts built just north of Mombasa. Whilst route planning we came across this lodge and camp. We have booked for 2 nights. The owners responded to our request for booking quickly and efficiently. After confirmation our booking, they have very kindly offered to support our cause by kindly allowing us to camp at no charge. This is really appreciated and is great to have such a welcome. We looking forwards to camping in February and will add a further review after our stay. On behalf of S2S Overland

We had an evening to kill in Mpika while waiting for the TAZARA train to arrive at 2am. Andreas took us to his lodge and then back to the station later on, where we passed the time playing pool and eating some high quality pizzas. A stylish and comfortable spot to relax in.
