We had been traveling hard in Zambia and Malawi when we arrived with family to this wonderful spot. Nothing was left to chance. Yes it was more expensive than many places we'd stayed but we opted to stay and extra night. All staff and the owners were willing and contributed to the 'house party' feel. If we go to Malawi...

We stayed two nights at Danforth and that was ... too short. The staff is friendly and professionnal, the food is delicious, the place is charming and they have all the equipment to scubadive, sail, waterski, wakeboard (and even wakeskate). The perfect place to relax and enjoy watersports between two safaris. Highly recommended.

I stayed at Danforth with a couple of friends for 3 memorable nights. There's tons to love about the place. First and foremost, the food is truly excellent. Meal times are more or less fixed, and guests are called to the table by the clarion call of the dinner bell. The food throughout our time there was very fresh and...

After a two weeks safari tour in Zambia we've stayed for five nights in this great lodge. Beautiful setting, very nice owners and staff, good rooms and good food. A lot of activities to do: kayaking, sailing, snorkling etc. Our children enjoyed a fantastic tubing experience. The sunset on the deck near the bar is fabulous.

We booked our holiday with Imagine Africa. We had never booked a holiday via the internet before but the reason we did this was that the company tailored our holiday in accordance to the number of days, the countries we wanted to visit and the price range. Imagine Africa were so efficient in e-mailing and knowing what type of holiday...

Truly a peaceful, welcoming, and beautiful place. The owners are extremely generous with their warmth and lodge, as were the staff. The food was phenomenal and creative. As a vegetarian there were consistently excellent vegetarian options. The quality for the price is the best part. With all meals, snacks, tea and non-motorized sports such as kayaks and bikes included, it...

We had a wonderful stay and the owners Michelle & Howard, the manager Eva and in particular the activities team Kate & Dean made it a memorable experience in hospitality! The rooms are generous in size and well kept, the food is plentyful but a bit old fashioned and the vegetarian choices could have a little more variety; the selection...
