“Really Enjoyed the Cheetah Experience”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

My wife and I stayed a Chaminuka for one night at the end of our 2+ week Zambian holiday. We were charmed by the very engaging owners who made us feel welcome and special. The Cheetah experience was amazing. One bit of warning, until the new road is in, the trip can be slow and bumpy. From the airport it took us over an hour by taxi. On the return, it was less than half and hour with a 4 wheel drive SUV. So, make sure you arrange proper transportation. The ride in the SUV was much more pleasant.

A lovely property situated among acres of green and forest with a variety of wildlife excluding big game. The added attractions are the cheese factory and the cheetah experience - walking the two gorgeous cheetahs was an awesome experience. There are also lions in a big open area that is fenced off. The views from the restaurant and bar of the lake are lovely. Some rooms have a view of the lake too. The food is fantastic with great variety , the staff caring with personal attention of owners.
Some of the rooms have maintenance issues with AC etc so best to check all amenities before unpacking.
Also situated far away from city with no nearby amenities so make sure you stock up in Lusaka for toiletries, currency etc.
There is no safe in the room for valuables

Room Tip: If you want to use the wifi, make sure you ask for a room close to the router. The rooms near the ou...
