I loved this place; not only was it a relaxing setting, but the tiger fishing was fun (although I was not successful in catching one) and the river cruising was enjoyable. The staff was great and the food was good. Loved hearing from the locals about their experience in gaining independence.

I loved my stay here so much. For me it was like heaven. I literally had tears when the woman opened my cabin door and I walked in. It was everything I needed and nothing more.

This lodge, located on Impalila Island, provides a different experience from the game lodges on the mainland. The pace is relaxed, and game viewing is by boat. You will see hippos, crocs, and a fantastic variety of birds. You can also go fishing in the Zambezi - my wife landed two tigerfish. Our tour also took us on a walk...
