Many parts of Zambia suffer from loadshedding. Not this establishment. They have a quiet genset that all the difference. This is my favourite hotel in Livingstone. Excellent value for money. Bonaventure and Kelvin at the bar are always do entertaining.

Everything was great! Staff and our tents were great and fun. Don’t expect a 4 star resort if you do that’s your fault not theirs. The only negative is it seems they have some food safety concerns at the restaurant. They reuse their yogurt after it’s been sitting out till 10am the used the same bowl for 3 days. Also with power outages they don’t have proper refrigeration. Only eat cooked food at the restaurant!
