I stayed here 4 nights on business with several colleagues. It was very rustic and remote, but it was comfortable and the staff did a phenomenal job taking care of us. The rooms are open-air huts (except for one, which is enclosed and air-conditioned) overlooking a tributary of Kariba Lake. We spotted several hippos and crocodiles from our rooms and from the patio at meals. Speaking of meals, the food was delicious and far exceeded my expectations of what we would be eating in such a remote location. I am still amazed at how fresh the food was each night at dinner. The game drives and "booze cruises" were very fun and allowed us to see several animals, such as elephants, warthogs, impalas, buffalo, and several beautiful bird species. I would definitely come back here again if ever given the opportunity.
