Savute Safari Lodge

Savute Safari Lodge

"Great lodge and safari"

2 nights Arrived 15 Mar 2016
"Wonderful place and staff with good food and your own wine waiter. Would say it is above basic and our accomodation was pretty luxurious.

Safaris very good with lots of wild life and good radio contact with everyone else including film makers so we saw a leopard and wild dogs.

Wondeful sights of elephants, waterhogs, impala outside the lodge when eating.

The savuti canal has dried up but they have water holes"

Nxai Pan Camp

Nxai Pan Camp

"a disappointment"

2 nights Arrived 17 Mar 2016
"Accomodation poor. No pressure so no hot showers in evening.

Safe broken, Ants in room, Basin doesn't drain off the water, patio doors in front of bed dont open - staff were told but did nothing.Poor lighting. Made to walk back to rooom after sunset once alone, which is not policy. When we got to our room had to sit in dark as no electricity. Swimming pool dirty, no filter.

The area is a poor chice for the wet season. Roads a nightmare. Got stuck and took hours getting through. Only one perimeter road and 2 roads in park so everything was too far away in the long grass to see. They need to maintain their very few roads and open some more up.

Guide seemed bored -Chester. Shoes the tracker was charming. Safaris started late especially in afternoon and had to finish by 7 pm. Very good food.

Management need to spend money on the infrastructure and the park officials need to open more roads into the Pan and maintain their roads"

Machaba Camp

"Wow. Wonderful"

3 nights Arrived 19 Mar 2016
"What a camp. Management and staff amazing.

Food good. They organized a dinner out in the open.

Excellent safaries. We saw a leopard every day and even tracked one. They got us home late if we were tracking an animal.

Good accomodation but needed a mostiquo net, as I got bitten quite badly and holes in tent where zip broken that let in animals and water.

Bed amazing, big and comfortable"

3 nights Arrived 22 Mar 2016
"Fantastic location to visit the Falls and town. Beautiful hotel. Lovely staff.

Dont bother visiting Zambia to see the falls. Zimbabwe is good enough. If you do get mutiple visa otherwise you pay twice.

Very relaxing place but food not great so go to Look Out Cafe-amazing views, to eat."
