A day trip to Chaminuka is a worthwhile excursion not only for the food, art work, and game but also to have a glimpse of the former colonial life in Zambia evidenced by the large farms passed on the way to the resort. Workers villages sit next to farmer estates, even at Chaminuka. The owner is a long time resident... More

I was there on the same day the the previous reviewer wrote “Nice place but very rude management”, he's totally correct and honest I saw the whole accident starting from the table top mistakenly broken & the polite way he asked to pay for the damage done, up to the totally rude/ irrational reaction by the owner of the place...

The drive was awful (bad road) but the location was beautiful. Limited animals to view but worth it. Located near the airport but another hour drive inward to the place.

I have been there with my family, my wife and my young daughter sat on a stone top table and broke it by accident. As any descent guest, I called for the manager and asked to compensate for the damages, and he told me that he will ask the owner. After 10 min we found an old man, whom we... More

Great location, great staff and all inclusive. The road might be an issue since it is all dirt road but part of the experience. John the guide is an expert nature guide and very pleasant staff.

Despite the short distance from Lusaka (40 km), it takes far more than an hour to reach the reserve, if you do not have a four wheel car. The gravel road is in very poor conditions, plenty of holes and bumps.It was quite difficult and hard. Once you finally and safely arrive, the place is nice, plenty of green. Game... More

boat ride; game drive (saw lions, hyena, elephants, giraffe, lots of impala and southern reedbuck); very good lunch buffet. It's a bit expensive, but well worth it.

A unique place about 40 minutes from town with a most amazing collection of contemporary, political and tribal art. The rooms were elementary, with a dire need of a lick of fresh paint, cleaning in the bathrooms and a general upgrade. The safari does not match the offer of South Africa or Kenya, but is quite lovely in its own... More
