The rooms were clean and well maintained, they are also of a good size. The food and service was very good. All in all it was a very nice stay, and I would...

Breakfasts were delish as were the dinners we had at the restaurant. Bar service around the two main pools was excellent. We...

This seemed to be a reason to cut down the power in our rooms for more then 5h (while they were only working on it for about 1h) in a temperature of close to 40 Celsius,...

With multiple hydro- power projects going on in this boarder area, a short trip to relax across the shore was worth it. Perfect sunset views and other magnificent scenery over Lake Kariba and the Zambezi river. Very cheerful staff.
