Where else can you sit having a pre-dinner drink when a herd of 15 elephants stroll by, warthogs graze on the lawns and the hippos come out of the river at dusk to nibble to grass on the side of the river bank? We thought the Zambezi River Lodge was an excellent venue for exploring the area. Our room and bathroom were clean and well decorated, the beds comfortable, and the breakfasts and evening buffet were excellent. The evening entertainment was traditional and enjoyable.
With hindsight we should have stayed another night, instead of moving on and would highly recommend the hotel.
