We had a good time at Protea Chisamba, you can go on a safari drive at any time. You can take a walk to see Kimba and Kiara (the lions) in a cage. This was an awesome experience being up close with the lions. The place also has several bird species which are beautiful to watch. For the amount of...

Had a great experience staying at the Safari Lodge. Animals seem tame and would come up close to rooms. I even had a deer stalk me for a bit. Took a walk to the lions' enclosure, and on the way even saw a jackal (nothing happened, thankfully). Felt really bad for the lions though, because they were locked up in...

Overall I liked the place, it felt like a getaway from the oh so busy daily schedules. I would recommend this place for a weekend. The walks down the trail were relaxing and we could clearly see the wildlife. There are also two caged lions to see

Surrounded by nature, Protea Hotel Safari Lodge is beautiful and serene. It was lovely to be back and being with nature was refreshing. There were not many people in camp and so my travel party got 💯 attention from our hosts. The breakfasts were okay, could have been better. The vegetarian meals during lunch and dinners were limiting, however I...

While this hotel is quite a bit north of Lusaka it is worth the journey. The rooms are pure luxury and spotless. The grounds were hugely interesting. Our Breakfast was interrupted by the Kudu and Impala. I would visit here again.

This place is in its own private game reserve. Unfortunately including caged lions which isn't quite cool but hey, at least there aren't any predators about so one can roam freely in the fairly spacious reserve (on foot). Good hoofed game, on an evening run I was amongst Impala, Kudu, Zebra, and warthogs, with lots more rustling in the bushes....
