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

We stayed recently, March 2015 , in the honeymoon suite which after 42 years of marriage was quite a treat ! Very quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of either Livingstone or Victoria Falls. Room was perfect, open fronted with decking and private plunge pool. We fell asleep to the sounds of lions roaring and views of the Vic... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in January and absolutely loved it. The lodge is totally unique, unlike anything I've seen before and the staff goes out of their way to make your stay fantastic. It's about a 25 minute drive from the airport to the lodge and the falls and activity center are less than 5 minutes away. The... More

There are some lovely choices in Zambia to stay at the Falls. Pass over every traditional hotel and land here, at Stanley Lodge. The staff is so attentive to your needs, but without being overbearing. (We loved Desai!) The rooms are lovely and our group of four adults loved the "Stanley" cottage. It was authentic, but at the same time... More

We stayed for two nights at the Stanley Safari Lodge. The lodge is in a secluded area a few kilometres from Victoria Falls and a short drive from Livingstone. It is peaceful and tranquil and has a remarkable view out over the valley towards the Zambezi River. Rooms are lovely and well appointed! Staff are wonderful, friendly and professional. Organising...
