An old institution in Katima, with Protea comforts. A laid back option on the ever-beautiful Zambesi, with large, private bungalows along the riverside and a large, lazy pool, it offers a little luxury en-route, or while exploring the area. Drinks on the balcony, friendly staff and balmy evenings on the great Zambesi, it is not a place to be in a hurry (or expect super-reliable access to the internet), and rightly so. Thoroughly recommended for families too.
