"We loved this lodge, another fabulous setting"

2 nights Arrived 28 Jun 2017
"The staff here are adorable and make a stay here very special. Animals wander in this camp which is magical.

Need two nights here to really appreciate it.

We lost some important documents and had to be returned to Windhoek. Expert Africa, the managers and staff pulled out all the stops to ensure this blip didn't spoil our fantastic holiday." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana

"Disappointing Stay"

1 night Arrived 23 Jun 2017
"Set in a wonderful location. We enjoyed afternoon tea sat out admiring the view and watching a golden tailed wood pecker and little bee eaters.

The room was okay, although due to just mosquito screens on some windows it was draughty and not very warm. The lack of power in the room was a set back, plus no hot water in the morning for a shower as the noisy room generator kicked in at 7am.

The evening meal was nothing special, and breakfast took an age to set up but was ok when it finally arrived.

Not one to repeat." See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia; 1n in South Africa

Staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Food was excellent and the game drives were run at our convenience. We saw a great deal.

We were escorted from our cottage to the main building at night due to elephant, hippo and leopard in the camp." See all these reviews: 26n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana

"Lianshulu Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 13 Nov 2016
"An older camp but a great location right on the river.

The rooms are nice and clean but not luxurious. We had a great game drive and wonderful sunset drinks and were joined by a large herd of Elephants.

The food and service at the lodge were great. Our hosts could not be faulted and made you feel you were staying your favorite Aunties house.

You cannot charge cameras or phones etc in your rooms but at the main hall is a room where you can do this." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 8n in Botswana

"Lianshulu Lodge"

4 nights Arrived 9 Oct 2016
"This was a favourite of ours.

The owner Annetta, is such a lovely caring lady who just wants her guest to enjoy the experience. Nothing is too much trouble and she is around all the time.

The accommodation is amongst the wildlife so you have to be escorted back to your room every night. Our last night we were awoken to a large bull elephant right outside our window munching on the vegetation. He then proceeded to move around to our decking and we could have touched him he was that close. We sat and watched him for 10 minutes until he was then warned away by the guards with there flashlights. Magic moment!

The food was very good and Annetta even lends a hand by serving to the guests. We spent 4 relaxing days here and enjoyed every moment." See all these reviews: 27n in Namibia

"Good safaris each time land & water"

3 nights Arrived 1 Nov 2015
"A very comfortable lodge fit for royalty with game drives on land and water. What more could one ask of an African holiday?

We were privileged to be out game driving when the first rain of the season arrived and did it rain! The guides said it was one of the most violent storms they had experienced with lightening , thunder and sheet rain. It was so bad that we could not drive and sheltered in a Ranger Station. If you have never smelt the bush after the first rains you have missed and experience. Elephants appeared and seemed overjoyed with the rain. What an experience!"
