Definitely up in the top trips we have taken.
First of all set in an incredibly beautiful place.
The Lodge itself is very well laid out and sits like an oasis within the Zambezi Valley.
Large trees shade the rooms which have strips of bush between them for privacy, they have lovely views of the mighty Zambezi.
The rooms are well laid out, spacious, comfortable, plenty of air movement, really great outdoor shower with plenty of hot water if required.
Stone paths that wind through well kept, lush green grass and bridges connect the rooms, the paths are well lit at night.
The attention to detail from before we even arrived to the moment we left after spending four nights was excellent.
From reminders to pay fishing fees to National Parks, road map, GPS co-ordinates, quick response to queries, any special occasion or diet requirements,
On arrival a boat was ready to take us out, cool box packed, Tiger fish and Bream rods ready, plenty of spare tackle, chopping board, knife, scale, crisps and live bait on board.
Within a hour we had a 10kg Vundu and a Tiger in the bag.
Fish were caught every time we went out, the two above plus Chessa and Bream.
Game viewing from the water is a lovely way to see wildlife, we spotted 11 different kinds of animal.
The bird life is impressive, the evening formation of various species making their way along the water are particularly lovely.
Our boat driver, Ernest, is a trainee Guide, he allowed us to use his binoculars and bird book freely.
His knowledge of the bush, birds and animals is considerable.
The sunsets are spectacular and combined with a really relaxing social at the campfire, tasty snacks were served, chilled drinks close at hand, Zambezi in sight and Hippopotamus doing their contented sounding snorting/grunting.
Just so peaceful and tranquil, sitting in the wilds of Africa but with extreme comfort.
The meals were so good, always plenty of fresh and tasty food, meal times are very flexible, we had one packed lunch which we ate on an island by a anthill under a lovely tree.
On getting back to the room after dinner one finds the mosquito nets down, bedding turned back on the very comfortable beds, ice water and glasses on a tray.
The Staff are very attentive but not in your face, the whole place is neat clean and tidy.
The generator came on early for us to pack up and have a cuppa before we left at 5:30am, Management waved us goodbye.
All in all a very special experience, one that we will always remember.
