We stayed at Eagles Rest for 4 nights just after Easter. It was nice and quiet and we had an exceptional view of the Lake. We could hear the waves and the Fish Eagles all day long. However, we were not prepared for the need to self cater. The restaurant is very sub par and even breakfast wasn't very impressive.... More

Eagles rest provides an excellent view of the lake making our stay very relaxing! Food was also excellent and the room very cozy and clean. The shower was superb. The extent of the beach at the lodge is so vast making the lodge a very fun place to chill from..

The place is good with potential to be great. I loved the rooms. the restaurant needs a retouch if it is to meet the raising hospitality standards. I'm definitely coming back again...this time with my family.

We stayed as a group of 5, lovely location, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, only issue was no wi-fi (it's so hard to do without!) Would go back again. Can do a day trip to Zimbabwe from here across Kariba Dam but make sure you have a multiple entry visa - we didn't so had to pay for another

The view of Lake Kariba couldn't have been better than from our balcony at Eagles Rest. The staff were friendly and helpful right down to sharing fishing tips and serving our breakfast on our balcony so we didn't miss the early morning visit from the hippos. Our family room was comfortable and adequately equipped to self cater. We look forward... More

Was in the group of 8 referred to by the previous reviewer. Accommodation was great - clean and very comfortable. The chalets are right on Lake Kariba so had fantastic views over the lake with a hippo putting in regular visits to the cove! Aircon worked a treat. Small problem with water but this was sorted as soon as it... More

I have stated at eagles rest before but this time returned with a group of 8 people. The accommodation was superb but was surpassed by the helpfulness of the staff and management who helped our whole team settle in and supported our every wish, providing good food and advice with a very warm welcome.

The road getting to Eagles Rest had been washed by recent rains, however after we got there everything was in good condition. There was a problem with water on the floor of the unit we were originally assigned, caused by the fridge leaking when the electricity was off. We were moved to another unit very quickly and easily.
