"Fantastic first experience of a safari"

3 nights Arrived 18 Oct 2007
"It was our first experience we saw so many animals our guide Ona was excellent, he explained the animal calls and made us feel apart of what was going on.

The staff at the camp were very welcoming and friendly. Everyone could not do enough to help make our stay a safe and happy experience.

The facilities were excellent and there was even a hair dryer for the ladies. Thank you everyone."

"Best tree house ever"

3 nights Arrived 21 Oct 2007
"Again great guiding, Jakes made our fishing trips ones to remember, with hipos and crocodiles and loads of fish. Again excellent friendly staff.

We all really enjoyed the evening by the fire and the dancing. The staff were all knowledgeable and helpfull with photography of the animals, we now have about 3,000 photos to edit, at least we can relive our safari over the next few months.

Overall we were really impressed. Thank you everyone."

Kings Pool

"Beautiful lodge"

2 nights Arrived 24 Oct 2007
"Once again wonderful staff. We had another excellent guide Ross.

We saw our first lepoard at Kings Pool. It was facinating to be explained how the lepoard was in danger as there were a large number of baboons in the area, Ross was explaining exactly how the warning signs were being called by the animals and how if the lepoard did not pick up on the signs it could be killed. She managed to survive that morning and hid up a tree for some time, which we were able to see. That evening we saw her again this time on the move and off hunting.

We were all really surprised how close we were able to get to the animals, an amazing experience. Thank you everyone."

"River Club review"

2 nights Arrived 26 Oct 2007
"Great to be picked up by boat for the arrival, also fun sun set cruise. The staff were good but the lodge was a little tired. The bathrooms need to be upgraded. Our impression was that it was a little old fashioned and needed up dating.

We had a great day at Victoria Falls and also very much enjoyed our visit to the village."
