"Excellent trip"

The Hide

The Hide

"Good"

3 nights Arrived 1 Nov 2018
"We had a very good stay at The Hide, but none of it was what I would call exceptional.

The rooms were good, the staff excellent, the food was not much better than average, and the guide was good but, again, not exceptional.

Overall a very nice stay, but I would not return."

Camp Hwange

Camp Hwange

"Good trip to this camp"

3 nights Arrived 4 Nov 2018
"We had a truly exceptional guide, by the name of Andy, who was not part of the staff, but a freelance as far as we could tell.

He was thorough, very informative, and able to pass on detailed information on a wide range of subjects. Possibly the best guide we have had on any safari. Otherwise the camp was comfortable, the staff were excellent, and the game was profuse. We liked the location, the rooms and the food was good, though not exceptional.

As we go to these places primarily for the guiding, Andy made the trip for us."

Batonka Guest Lodge

"Very nice 24 hrs in a delightful place"

1 night Arrived 7 Nov 2018
"A really nice and comfortable hotel/guest lodge.

Very nice staff, very good food, and the location - outside of the main town - was probably better than closer to the Falls. Nice and quiet.

Highly recommended"

"Nice stay, good guides and good company"

3 nights Arrived 8 Nov 2018
"The overall stay was really nice, with good sightings, good food etc, but I was not keen on the rooms. Basic is nice on safari, but basic can be overdone.

Excellent location, very friendly and informative staff and management.

Overall a good stay"

"Nsefu review"

3 nights Arrived 11 Nov 2018
"A very nice stay indeed - certainly somewhere I would like to go back to.

Possibly the best location, in terms of view, of any lodge we have stayed at anywhere. Beautiful.

Very nice, if somewhat quirky, rooms, excellent staff, very good guiding - overall a most excellent stay.

The only downside was the food was far from the best of our trip."
