Janine and her team are incredibly dedicated - they were so welcoming from the moment I arrived. The accommodations are very comfortable and the food is excellent. Although it was raining the entire day of my safari I had...

We stayed 3 nights on the campground with a beautiful view on the Zambezi. Great and spacious camping with all you need: campfire, cooking place, water, electricity and clean ablution blocks. Free WIFI if needed. A sundowner on the veranda overlooking the Zambezi is a must. The staff was very friendly and the cook spoiled us with a great dinner!...

We spent three nights in safari tent #5 - what a spectacular view! This one is literally right on top of the river and offers the most stunning sunset views from its deck. Other friends camped and others in the cottage. The service was friendly and excellent. We shall return with more friends!

I travelled with a group on fact finding tour of the Lower Zambezi and the South Luangwa National Park. Kiambi was the first place we stayed in. We had camped just by the Zambezi River. We had a wonderful experience. At night I had an encounter with a hippo. I enjyed the environment around the camp. I will be back.

The full moon over the Zambezi, as seen from the stunning glitter stone veranda of Kiambi Safari Lodge, is something I will dream of forever. Great food, fabulous accommodations, and attentive staff -- what more could I hope for besides the joy of seeing elephants and hippos from the water while canoeing, and lounging by the pool in the heat...

This is the highlight of my Zambia trip, people are extremely friendly and overly helpful. They cater to every need of you. You get what you are promised and many times way more than that. The location is spectacular, the full day game safari is certainly recommended, we even saw lions. It was spectacular in every way
