Lusaka, Zambia

It was a great trip to escape from Lusaka. The staff is absolutely welcoming and friendly! Beautiful view from the room over the Zambesi River. The food is absolutely delicious and the view from the restaurant is great! We will definitely return.

The team did great, the staff was universally friendly and accomodating, the pool was lovely, and the spa was right there! Most people come to Livingstone with the intent of pursuing activities, as long as you have a peaceful place to call home afterwards you should be all set. The lodge was perfect for this, and we accepted it was...

Best beds in Africa! (At least as far as I am concerned) I can't rave enough about this hotel. It has a comfortable vibe, with high class service and accommodations.

Location is fabulous and property well kept. Breakfast very nice, other meals are good but not excellent. Spa is well priced, gym serviceable but the space is terribly laid out. Best value for top quality in Livingstone. Management and staff very helpful and friendly. Pool is nice and it's on the river with great activities and access.
