We were booked here for 2 nights (24 & 25 Aug) as Livingstone was fully booked due to the UNWTC conference. While the staff are very most helpful and friendly, particularly Darios and Alice in Reception and the food was fairly good, the Chalets really need to be upgraded, the rockwall showers (aka 1970) are seriously outdated and not attractive even if they are supposed to look like the Vic Falls!!! Good bed linen and towels and the rooms were clean, but the roof netting on the thatched roofs of the chalets are not sealed so thousands of mosquito's and insects freely enter your room. However, we have never ever seen anywhere so infested with mozzies, there were so many (I mean Trillions!!) They were all over the reception area, the bar, the pool area, bathrooms etc- we sprayed our rooms to the point of choking on the fumes, had 2 incense coils burning and a citonella oil burner and it had very little effect, there were just too many mozzies!! ANd even with Nets over the beds they got in and ate us!! We live in northern Zambia and deal with Malaria all the time, meaning we spray our houses and yards properly with a strong recognised repellant, the Bushfront say they are spraying but, they could not be doing it properly to have that many mozzies. It is also dry season in Zambia, so any stagnant water around the perimeter should be dry, they are not spraying regularly, and it will be a miracle if we don't all come down with Malaria, even though we are taking profolatic's. The mozzies are living in the thatch roofs, gardens, walls - it was a nightmare, and then we got into our car, OMG I have never seen so many come out of a small space in my life, there was a carpet of dead mozzies just in our spare wheel, after we sprayed and our passengers were eaten on the drive back to Lusaka as we just couldn't kill them all. If we could have found another lodge free we would have moved, and it is unlikely that we will go to this lodge again as there are far better available.
