I write this review sitting by the pool after 3 really excellent days at this perfect spot not wanting to leave. Contrary to another review, we were immediately offered lunch on our arrival even though it was 3 in the afternoon and food was served on the flight.
The focus by staff on activity arrangements seems totally appropriate and aimed at ensuring their guests get the most out of what is usually a short stay close to Victoria Falls. Most activities were included in the cost of the stay but the more "exciting" externally organised trips get fully booked and the hosts are trying to avoid guests' disappointment.
It is actually advisable to book visits such as Livingstone Island in advance of your arrival.
This is a very comfortable lodge which fits in appropriately to its environment. So much so that we had elephants wandering through each night. It's frontage onto the Zambesi offers not only a splendid view but also the opportunity to explore the river both early in the morning and late at night.
Staff are friendly without being intrusive and extremely well informed on wildlife. As usual, the more questions you ask, the more interesting the journey becomes. Full marks.
