Had an awesome time with friends. A rare moment that has occurred twice in my lifetime. My friends and I love your services, looking forward to being there in December with my family and friends. We appreciate you.

It was too amazing to explain, regret coming for only a night because this kinda paradise needs a life time to soak. The attention given to me and my friends was first class, Chantele was nice enough to come and meet us, the monkeys stared like they knew i was thinking how cute they are. planning another week long trip

Great to have all the wild animals so close, unfortunately during my stay there we never once saw a single waiter, had no bar service or restaurant service, not even a working bar at the pool at all, the fishing charter was a disaster as the skipper was asleep most of the time and nearly rammed into another vessel once...

Chantel & Neville were extremely welcoming, great hosts. They were kind enough to arrange 2 outings for us on Christmas Day, in the morning to the neighbouring crocodile farm (which I HIGHLY recommend!) and the afternoon a cruise on the lake. Chalets are well appointed and very clean with a magnificent view, marvellous swimming pool overlooking the lake, excellent breakfast...

My wife and I had a great stay and the accommodation was lovely. The staff were very hospitable and were passionate about the bush club. The lake and the surrounding islands were beautiful and the wildlife (especially bird wildlife) was a highlight. At the camp it is common to see Zebra, bush-pig and impala deer freely roam around on site....

This is a great spot to get away from it all. The dirt road did take about an hour to traverse, just as advertised, but once you're there is worth it. We stayed in a chalet and cooked or own meals - both of which were delightful. A highlight was definitely the view from our room. Chantel and Neville were...

We stayed for 5 nights at kariba bush club. First we'd like to say that we really enjoyed the stay, apart from being in the dorm. The grounds are lovely, animals come down every night, the sunset is sweet and the pool clean. The kitchen staff, as well as Chantel and Neville were very nice, kind and helpful. We did...

After getting lost and racing with the sunset I was ecstatic to seen the signs for Kariba Bush Camp. Although I showed up unannounced all the staff was very welcoming and the stocked store room with all essential supplies such as cold beer was a lovely perk. I only stayed for a short time but I enjoyed the views of...

It was well worth the 6 hour trip from lusaka. Chantel and Neville made sure we had everything we needed. We camped and was very surprised to find a well kept camping site with green grass and very nice ablution facilities. At night the zebras and warthogs wonder around the camp site which was something special. Pitty that the water...

It was a long drive , but surely the effort paid off. Travelled through a nature paradise. I stopped several places for the bets pic of the day. The road was not that easy , but don't be put off.

“The lake view chalets are pretty good, pick one furthest away from the bar. The beds come with mosquito nets but ours was full of holes, so make sure you bring some mosquito repellent with you if you are prone to being bitten.”
