Having read the last few reviews I was quite apprehensive about our 3 night stay. But this is a magical place to stay so please don't let others put you off if you are planning a stay. we stayed in the bird house which is amazing with great views an open air bathroom and a sunken bath on the patio. Our butler Alvin looked after our every need even to the point of decorating the bedroom for my 40th birthday and arranging a cake and choir to come to the room and sing. All the activities are great and included in the price. The game viewing was very personal with only the 2 of us on the vehicle and also very informative. The river cruises again excellent both sunrise and sunset. Food was of a high standard.I can't speak highly enough of the staff here they are very well trained and attentive and really make the stay that extra special. As far as bugs are concerned there was no more or less than any other parts of africa we have stayed. you are based on the side of the zambezi so what do you expect? The lodge has done great work for the local village and school and needs to be commended for this. My only regret is that we didnt stay longer. I hope that we will be fortunate enough to stay here again and again as this is the only place that on leaving I had a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye. If you are going to livingstone this is the place to stay, go on treat yourselves.
