On arrival we were given a very warm welcome from Dora and Conrad, and the wonderful hospitality continued all week. The chalets were clean, well looked after and comfortable with breathtaking views. The food was delicious and would be hard to beat anywhere. Compliments to the chef! Our guide Moses was excellent and extremely knowledgeable with a great personality, and... More

We had a wonderful time at Wildlife Lodge! Upon our arrival the staff welcomed us and the service remained at high level during the whole week. One just had to ask for and it was already arranged for us. Our chalet was very comfortable: the 3 children were sleeping together in their bedroom, a private shower and toilet in the... More

Dora and her team offered the best hospitality I've ever had in Africa. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Loved the flexibility offered based on out wishes. The camp is just by the river where you might catch elephants crossing and hippos bathing! Giraffes roam on the campground. Saw many exquisite animals up close and personal - loved the... More

A grand arrival with elephant walking through reception. A campsite With access to power, shaded areas and shelters, clean ablutions, green grass to pitch your tent and a leopard hunting on the opposite bank from your camp. What more could you ask for? Amazing staff, befriending and personal. a must stay.

This place was a piece of paradise for me. We travelled with Nomad tours, did camping, so I cannot review the chalets, but the facilities offered in the camping were great. Very clean bathroom, hot water, swimming pool and nice bar to relax. The location is the best. Right on the bank of the Luangwa river you can watch the... More

Our stay at Wildlife was wonderful. Relaxed, quiet, great food, great service, very friendly and helpful staff and managers. We were also lucky that we were there in the low season, so all our game drives were private :-) Our guide did his best to show us the more difficult to find predators (lions, leopards, wild dogs) and we saw...

The campsite is next to the river so you have an amazing view. A night the hippos come out to graze around. During school holidays it can be full but it still does not feel to crowded. The pool is really nice and ideal to relax after your morning drive. We used the game drives offered by the camp. The... More

The permanent tents and lovely chalets are situated on a bend in the river where you can see the wildlife at a stone's throw. It is superb and one of my favourite places in Africa. The tents are very comfortable and have all you need, most of all, proximity to the animals and a view of the river - virtually... More
