The view is amazing from the terrace, nice walk down to the lake. Food was excellent, not to mention good coffee and friendly service at the restaurant. Room was nice, quiet and functional. Only challenge that I faced was quite a lot of ants both in my room as well as at the terrace and by the pool. Road on the last mile is quite terrible, but then you feel like being far away from everything. All in all I enjoyed my long weekend stay and hope to come back.

Unexpected renovations!
Unfortunately the Hotel is currently busy with renovations which we were not informed about when booking. First allocated room was cramped and noisy as workers were busy with angle grinding close by. Staff kindly relocated us to a nicer room further away. The views from the restaurant are spectacular but again noisy due to renovations during the day. Restaurant staff are to be commended (special mention goes to Erikson). Housekeeping needs to pay more attention. We eventually booked out a day early. I'm sure when renovations are complete the hotel will be stunning. But would avoid for now.

We had a fantastic stay at Lake Kariba Inns. The setting was beautiful and the food was delicious. We had full body massages whilst there and went on a boat trip - all at a great value price. Staff were friendly and helpful, although could be a little slow when ordering/serving evening meals. When we checked out, the reception staff offered to call a bus to the hotel to take us back to Lusaka. When they were not able to get through to a bus driver, they had one of their own drivers take us to the market place to catch the bus - free of charge. Excellent service! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to visit again soon.
