A group of us (10 couples) stayed there a few nights ago. The place is beautiful and the rooms are comfortable and clean. However, my wife and I got rude service from the receptionist and the other couples complained of the same. I hope it wasn't because we were Zambian locals.worse still, the shower in our room was broken and... More

Very nice place, fantastic location right on the lake. We even had a hippo outside our room one night! Food is very good quality and huge portions but not everything on the menu always available. Restaurant service can be a little slow but who cares when you have such a great view. Rooms 27-30 are nice big rooms with good... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. We arrived at 10pm (closely followed by another group who arrived separately) and reception and the bar were locked up with no one to be seen. Eventually someone managed to find the night watchman. I was put in room 3, which is one of the rondavels. It did have the biggest flatscreen TV I... More

My colleagues and I stayed at this hotel for a workshop for about 2 weeks. It was apparent from the time we arrived that there were issues already festering! Rooms were kept unclean and previous water damages to walls for example were not repaired. Let's just say for all the hype I received about this lodge, it was disappointing to... More

As weary missionaries we arrived at Lake Safari Lodge in need of a little TLC and down time. The owner and his family treated us with kindness and respect as if we too were part of their family. I hope on our next mission in Siavonga were able to stay there! Ask for a room with a view for sure!... More
