Liya Guest Lodge
Reviewed 20 September 2008

Liya is located very far from town so unless you have a car at your disposal you are stuck at the guest house, which offers dinner for an extra fee. The rooms are old and not so clean. We saw what we believe to be rat poison at a corner of our bathroom though we didn't see any rat, dead or alive. We stayed only one night in between Vic Falls and the start of our Botswana tour. We were glad to leave. Dinner and breakfast were OK.

Reviewed 14 August 2008

The Liya Guest Lodge was dirty and most of the staff was not very helpful. Our room had accumulated so much dust that I had an allergic reaction and had to clean it myself. (At my request, the staff changed the sheets the next day, which was at least nice of them and definitely helped). However, no apologies for the mountain of dead bugs in the corner. We also asked for help booking a safari and one of the staff members seriously said that we shouldn't take our safari on a Saturday because the animals know its the weekend and won't be out. Honestly. He was not trying to be funny - rather, I think he got a kickback from a friend if we booked on a day other than Saturday.

If you have to stay in this Lodge because nothing else is available, stay in Room 1 - b/c at least it was thoroughly cleaned by me in August 2008. However, if you can, I would instead recommend the Waterlilly (which was also about ~400 pula or US$70 per night). If you have a group of 4, the Chobe Safari Lodge (so nice!) has family rooms for around 800 pula. The dinner at CSL is the best!
