Had such a great time there and am definitely visiting again, actually my boyfriend and I, are planning to have our wedding there🤭. The rooms, the service and food, everything was perfect. Thank you Blue Zebra Island Lodge. It's only the wild flower called "Chitedze" that I kept reacting to, my skin was itchy most times but overall we had a great time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! It was great to have you here and that's very exciting to hear you'd like to come back for your wedding. Sorry to hear about your reaction, we do have cream here to help with that but as it's seasonal we can plan your next visit when that won't be a problem :) We look forward to welcoming you back.

This was everything we wanted- tranquil, a perfect getaway after a busy wedding. Jen and Duncan and their staff were amazing and friendly. They made us feel right at home. From the moment we arrived, we were treated with amazing customer service. The food was delicious and very satisfying. We loved the outdoor tent-like chalets and the overall setup. Definitely worth the money and we would love to visit again.
