Less game than Luanga but still exciting and stimulating with mighty river on your doorstep."

"Island Life on the Zambezi"

3 nights Arrived 28 Jun 2013
"After the intimacy of the bush camps, a bit more touristy with other guests clearly doing Africa and stopping over primarily for the Falls. Rooms starting to look a bit weary, but staff very friendly and helpful, and our guide was superb.

The walk around the village was enlightening and uplifting in spite of the obvious difficulties facing the villagers in their daily lives."
