"Great welcome to Zambia at Waterberry"

3 nights Arrived 1 Sep 2013
"A wonderful place to stay! Peaceful location with attentive staff who tailored activities and meal times to suit individual guests. It is not the nearest to the falls but we appreciated being able to relax here after our flight, and were escorted to and from all that we wanted to see, while enjoying peaceful trips on the river away from the crowds of the town.

Claudia welcomed us, and was eager to know what we would like to do so that she could create a timetable for us. We were seen off on each trip and welcomed back by one of the managers. Claudia was particularly helpful.

All staff were charming and attentive, and we enjoyed talking to them about their lives in Zambia on drives to and from Livingstone. Boat trips and a tour of the village from which several staff came were a highlight. We had not expected to see any animals here, so glimpses of elephants, hippo, crocs were an unexpected bonus, while the birdlife was amazing, and we wished we had done the guided birdwalk which was offered.

This lodge is not one you usually recommend - but we were interested that the rep from Audley Travel was there for a site visit as it is one they use. The lodge managed to combine the camaraderie of drinks together around a fire with the privacy of separate dining , and the meals were delicious!" See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia

"Great stay in the farmhouse"

3 nights Arrived 19 Aug 2013
"We had a great stay in the farmhouse. Everything was topnotch, the meals prepared by Josephine and Alex were delicious ( especially the curry on the first night).

The activities were very well organized and everything flowed without a hitch. A 45 minute drive into town. Special thanks to Webster for the morning bird walk.

I was a bit uncomfortable regarding the tip suggestions in the booklet ( service charge included with the staff's salary), and felt afterwards that I didn't tip enough. I will try to make it up." See all these reviews: 17n in Zambia
