Trip rating: Excellent
"We very much appreciated being helped by travel agents who have intimate knowledge of the regions they are supporting. Thank you to Ellie for her always good advice on picking locations for the family and having a good sense on when, where and for how long to travel.

It is amazing how all the pieces nicely worked together without us having to inquire."

Stanley Safari Lodge

Stanley Safari Lodge

"A cosy place to start our trip"

3 nights Arrived 5 Jul 2015
"This is a beautiful, peaceful place. After the long trip from Europe, we enjoyed the hospitality and joyfulness of the staff. Thank you to Katie, Peter and Babylon for looking after our needs, for long, interesting conversations and for keeping the children entertained.

The primary purpose of the trip was to visit the Victoria Falls, followed by seeing local culture. We did not take advantage of the adventure entertainment offered in the area as it was primarily geared towards adults and exceedingly expensive. Between activities, we found the Stanley Safari Lodge wonderful for relaxing, gazing into the landscape and watching spectacular sunsets."

"A good place on the way through"

3 nights Arrived 8 Jul 2015
"We were glad to have the family house even though it did not provide the same luxury as the chalets. However, apart from being a safe and quiet place, it is not particularly interesting.

We used Pioneer Camp as stopover for visiting another town and as conveniently located close to the airport."

Robin's House

"Best place for family safari in South Luangwa"

6 nights Arrived 11 Jul 2015
"This was the undisputed highlight of our travel to Sambia and Malawi. Already the arrival was breathtaking for a family that had not been on safari before: hippos and crocs bathing and splashing in the water only some meters away, and monkeys chasing each other on the roof.

Having peeked at other lodges, we appreciated the safeness, shielding and size of Robin's House. The hospitality and elegance of our serving staff Loti and Phelix was outstanding, and the kitchen chef Nixon world class.

We were extremely lucky to have had Obi as our guide. He has a deep knowledge of the park, the animals, their favorite locations at different times, and the ecosystem. Furthermore, he is a great teacher who taught us much about animals and plants. Finally, he is also a skilled driver who can steer the Toyota Landcruiser as if he was a ballet dancer. We heard that Obi has career ambitions and wish him best luck in the future!"

"A fine place to wind down and have fun"

4 nights Arrived 17 Jul 2015
"This is a large property beautifully located in the national park.

Apart from Saturday, we had the place almost to ourselves, the kayaks and motorboat as well as other facilities were readily available. Guy is a good host and chef, very attentive and helpful, the staff cheerful and always ready to fulfil our wishes.

We particularly enjoyed talking to Louise who runs a small souvenir shop and produces craft work together with orphans."
