Maramba is in a beautiful setting!Our camp was good value for money. Green camp with lots of tree cover, grass, electricity and picnic tables. Not the most private camp if full but we were only 3 campers over 2 nights so very quiet. Camped next to river saw hippo and massive herd of elephant passed across the bank every night!... More

Firstly, on the positive side, the chalets are lovely with nice colors chosen for paints and all the things one likes to have on hand (coffee/tea making facilities, safe, mozzie nets and fan) provided. Also, the location of Maramba is good, being between the Falls and Livingstone. And the common areas are attractive with the bar and restaurant being especially... More

For a unique rustic experience select lodging inside the Mosi Tunya National Park in Livingstone, Zambia. This property overlooks the Maramba River four miles from Victoria Falls in one direction and Livingstone the other. Guests have a variety of accommodations to choose from including permanent chalets and tents. We stayed in a chalet and although it was comfortable, it was... More

We were very disappointed with our stay at Maramba River Lodge. I had booked a chalet room a few weeks prior to our stay via email and had received confirmation, however when I called up the day we were due to arrive to say we would be arriving late they had no recollection of our booking. Fortunately there was a... More

Following our nice camping in Botswana we spent 2 nights in Livingstone, Maramba River Lodge to visit again Victoria Falls. Our experience was good, most probable because we also managed our expectation. We found the lodge good and good value for money because it was quiet, no crowd, the garden and environment was nice and natural, the pool was clean... More

Although the hotel served a good breakfast, it was the only hotel we have stayed at that didnt provide complimentary drinking water in the room. And although mosquito nets were provided, there were a lot of mosquitoes within the space enclosed by the net, probably because the mosquitoes hid under the bed during the day. There was also no facility... More

We stayed in a chalet, which is the most exclusive alternative at the lodge. We had a family room with a double bed and a bunk bed for the kids. The chalets are stand alone with a small veranda. There are dark green mosquito nets instead of windows. The decor is very tired and dark, the walls have cracks in... More

Maramba Lodge is best thought of for backpackers and those who can handle a few nights roughing it. We were booked into Chalets, but on arrival were given tents. After showing my booking form, we were given chalets, must to relief all round. Breakfast is very basic, as is the accommodation. Flat pillows and worn mattresses. If you are forced... More

This lodge was chosen for us by our tour operator and after reading the mixed reviews,we were unsure what to expect. It is set on the banks of the river and is a combination of basic tents,chalets and landela tented accomodation. We had a landela tent which was basic,but comfortable with a double bed and a single bed,toilet,wash hand basin... More

Maramba River Lodge is affordable and very well situated. We stayed for 2 nights and the tent are adequate. It is not a 5 stars spot but very well priced. Crocs, hippos and elephants visit the lodge every day.
