My wife and I stayed 4 months at Maramba, while building a project in Livingstone. Brad and Ruth Keast, the managers there, as well as the staff became like family to us. The Lodge is beautifully situated on the Maramba River and the only Lodge situated in the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park. That means that basically, you will see... More

We have been using this place as our #1 place to stay when in Livingstone for the last 13 years. We have taken many visitors with us and every trip there has been enjoyable. The prices are about the cheapest you can now find in Livingstone and still have a very enjoyable stay. The thing that draws us the most... More

We had a two night stay here and had originally booked for camping, but due to the rains we stayed in the safari tents. These were expensive and crammed in alongside each other. We found the staff welcoming and friendly, but as we did not eat in the restaurant we cannot comment on the food and service.

We stayed at the Maramba River Lodge for the second time this summer when we were visiting Livingstone and Chobe National Park. We stayed in the safari tents that were very comfy and had nice hot showers. The complex is right on the river and is a very relaxing place to enjoy a drink as the sun sets. There is... More

we initially booked 2 nights camping and extended an extra 2 days. we camped next to the river in a lovely setting. The swimming pool was great for the kids and Bradley and his team were very helpful. The proximity to the falls and being just out of town made it a perfect place to stay.

We stayed in the luxury tents and found them to be very comfortable. The food was good and the staff were friendly. Loved the breakfast with the fresh scones! We were there at the hottest time of the year and were a bit worried about the tents being too hot at night but they weren't. We like that we could... More

This is one of the most amazing places I have stayed - such wonderful access to wildlife. We ate our breakfast while watching a whole family of elephants eating their breakfast just yards across the river. We watched a mother hippo and her baby frolicking (I didn't know hippos could frolick) in the water just yards from our evening drinks.... More

Our 'room' was a canvas-sided tent, on a wooden platform, with two comfortable single beds, a toilet, sink and shower. Mosquito netting was on all windows of the 'tent', and mosquito netting was over each bed. Free tea and coffee all day long. Breakfasts were good; dinners were good. Hippo came after 9:00 pm to graze on the grass. Baboons... More

We stayed here for our visit to Vic Falls and Chobe national Park. Many of the lodges and hotels in this area are very expensive and charge higher 'rack rates' for tourists but Maramba is a much better price. We stayed in a luxury chalet which was well equipped and comfortable. The walls of the chalet are netting so the... More
