The facilities, food, and most importantly, staff, of this faculty are just wonderful. We did the river safari, which was fun and better than a river safari at a different hotel.

What was most remarkable about my stay was the kindness and honesty of the staff when I left my iPhone in the room the morning I left. Not only did they recover the phone from my room and save it at the desk, they held on to the phone for two months while I sorted out who could pick it up and then send it to the United States. They even kept the phone charged, using some of their very limited electricity.

5 stars is simply not enough to reflect how excellent this lodge is for the price.

The lodge is fantastic.
Tents located remotely from each other and very well designed.
Food is very tasty , but takes time to prepare.
Service is very good.

Car safari is Avarage.

Walking safari is a joke.
Avoid it.
You can walk around the by you own.......

Very nice place to stay! Staff is great, dormitory are very cosy for a safari camp, shared showers are just perfect and efficient. Food was good and simple.
The organisation of the boat trip and game drive were really great. William was a fantastic guide, knowing a lot about nature. Walking safari was also fantastic.
Price are really ok compared to other place in the area

Room tip: In low season, dormitory was great cause we were the only guests

Very rustic bush camp on a par with South African backpackers accommodation. The boat trip on the Shire was great as was the game drive in Liwonde. Our guide was very knowledgeable and professional. We used the dormitory which was fairly basic but no complaints. Very nice hot showers and food was basic but good. Staff were very friendly. The camp is rough around the edges but an authentic experience, particularly for those visiting Africa for the first time.

This camp has a perfect environment for campers and people looking for a luxurious tent and have the full safari spirit. Elephants just walking past the tents, monkeys in the trees, birds everywhere. Go for it. The boat safari is a nice add-on to a morning self drive/safari tour.
