We spent 3 nights at Stanley Safari Lodge between Christmas and New Years. This really is a lodge with it's own special feel, with wonderful rooms (each one different) rather than a standard hotel with standard rooms. The view from the rooms are all beautiful, overlooking an expanse of green forest with the smoke from Victoria Falls in the background.... More

Open air, wonderful people, great service, great food, beautiful sunsets, infinity pool, lots of things nearby to do. Really enjoyed staying here. Highly recommend. The rooms are open to nature, you can't be afraid of bugs, but they make every effort to make sure they don't interfere with your stay. It is great for the lover of outdoors. Rooms are... More

I cannot rate highly enough. The staff was all fantastic and we were so well cared for, and attended to, while the staff still managed to make themselves incredibly discreet! Well organised, was such a great and special time for us, thank you!!!

Angena musanga or going into the bush allows an individual to reconnect with the fundamentals of being and with the intrinsic qualities of self. While we did not in any genuine sense "go into the bush," still, the atmosphere of profound quiet and repose at Stanley Safari Lodge gave us a genuine sense of the experience. From our lodging, the... More

A beautiful and natural lodge with an excellent vibe adn staff. This was our first stop on a Zambian adventure and an excellent way to ease into the bush. The lodge is not on the river, but you can see it and the views over the valley are beautiful. The rooms are very spacious and luxurious in an African style.... More

Stanley Safari Lodge was a delight from the moment we arrived. The entire staff was welcoming and helpful. The facilities are absolutely beautiful. From the front yard, you can look into the distance and see the mist cloud from Victoria Falls. The staff arranged for a tour of the Falls for our group of four. The tour included a talk... More

Everything about my stay at Stanley Safari Lodge was 5 stars. Greeted at check-in with a tasty lemonade. We had an open concept room, loved being open to nature. I surprised to never find a bug (only an ant or two). Every night housekeeping would light some mosquito candles around the room, and place hot water bags in the bed... More

Although we were there at low season and there were not many other guests, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, partly because of Peter who gave us his undivided attention. The rooms are very large and have interesting decorations, each with a small private verandah and pool. We set our own times for dinner and breakfast. They also arranged a visit... More

My friends and I stayed here early April. We all loved the lodge, the rooms, the views and the peace and quiet. The staff are very nice but we found mealtimes rather chaotic. We were a group of six and they were not able to keep to the meal times which had been arranged in advance so we were constantly... More
