We stayed in the permanent tents which are very affordable and comfortable, though they might be *very* hot during the summer. The showers worked well and we were welcome throughout the hotel. You can book all kinds of activities at the SafPar office in the hotel, and they were very helpful and patient -- we did the sunset cruise (kinda... More

Great location right next to the Zambezi river and on a national park. I was camping and then spent the last night glamping. Brilliant facilities and good showers although one wasn't working at the time I was there. The reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because of the awful service we received at the restaurant. We were moved... More

Dear lauracooke027, Thanks so much for your review and the feedback on the restaurant - we are so sorry you experienced this! That is truly disappointing and we will use this as constructive criticism to improve on our service levels, there are some trainees in the staff and we will provide more support to ensure this scenario is not repeated....

A hotel of great character and atmosphere, with amazing views of the Zambezi River. Safpar are based on site so it's easy to book a wide range of trips and adrenalin adventures. The riverside chalets are comfortable, and there are camping facilities too - that end of the site can get quite lively!

We gad a great time, but... It probably depends on which room, but ours was a noisy one (surroundings, other people and construction work).Great place, but a lot of opportunities to make it even better!

A family of 3 stayed at the Waterfront for a few days either end of a tour to Namibia and Botswana. The rooms were clean, spacious and quiet. The menu was quite limited but the meals were hot, freshly prepared and good. Staff were friendly and helpful, location on the Zambezi was great, and handy for a range of activities... More

Spent one night with my family of 5 in a family cottage. The staff is friendly and helpful (directions, accommodating activities). The cottage is charmingly decorated and it has a homely feeling the African/safari style. The surrounding nature is lush and at the time of our visit there was a lively atmosphere. The terrace is a very pleasant setting for... More

We had gone on a Bike trip and found this great place where we stayed 4 Days. Well placed tents and standing on solid squared foundations. Electric power available inside with two single beds placed on each side. Good value for money. Common washrooms kept clean as well.

This was the beginning of our overloading tour through South West Africa and I couldn't ask for a better start! We were camping so I cannot comment on the rooms, but the camping facilities and pool were clean (apart from the odd bug) and the showers were hot. The bar was an absolutely lovely place to spend a couple of... More

This is a beautiful, but not over the top, lodge along the Zambezi and half way between Livingstone town and the falls. We stayed in one of the very spacious family rooms and enjoyed going on a boat tour directly from the hotel grounds. Absolutely everything you need for a visit to the falls, especially if you like a small... More
