We stayed there for three days and it was a mesmerizing experience. If you are visiting livingstone and staying somewhere in downtown or any other hotel at usual place, you are wasting some good opportunities. A must stay place for following reasons 1. Very close to nature. Green with lot of trees. It gives you a very different feeling of...

We stayed here for the first few days of our African trip and although its not the flashiest joint in Livingstone it still ticks the boxes and the price is right. Its about half way between Livingston township and Victoria falls which is great. Rooms were very clean and tidy, food was plentiful and tasty and service was great as...

Our room wise nice, as was the staff. We loved being by the river after being in Zimbabwe which was very dry. A great contrast in scenery as well. While we were in Zambia we swam in "the Devils Pool and enjoyed being around water. From the bar area we saw hippos in the river, and outside our room we...

We have stayed at Maramba River Lodge at least 5 times in the last 10 years. It is still good value for money, the staff is pleasant and helpful but I couldn't help but noticing that things are not the same anymore and is gradually loosing its appeal. The building have been repainted from the old yellow to green but...

This is a simple lodge with fairly basic accommodation but is well run and in a great location right on the bank of the Maramba river. We were just here for two nights, as a base for visiting Victoria Falls, but enjoyed relaxing around the pool and watching the wildlife around the river. The wildlife does come even closer -...

I stayed in the safari tent. The bed was comfortable and the tent had everything I needed. It was a little worn but everything was perfectly functional. There were a lot of mosquitoes at the lodge. The food at the lodge was decent but nothing special. There was an outdoor bar that overlooked the Maramba River. We spotted some hippos...

We stayed here for 3 nights. The chalet we had was very basic, but tidy, clean and comfortable. The mosquito net around the bed was very good. You definitely need one if you stay here. The view over the river (at the bar and restaurant) was wonderful. We have sit there for some moments, had a drink and watch the...

We spent two nights at Maramba 25th & 26th Sept 17. We occupied tents 11,12 & 13. The accommodation was adequate and luckily the fan functioned to keep air moving especially to disorientate the mosquito. Although we were protected with nets when sleeping, there was no protection other than a burning coil to keep the other areas free of mosquitoes....

It`s a good place for accomodation, but when we visit Maramba in September our vehicle was destroyed at the campsite. The watchmen were blind or worked together with the gangsters. Now in November we stayed again at Maramba. The bartender was very lazy. She seldom moved, an the tables were dirty for days.

My husband and I stayed here for a night to see the Zambian side of Victoria Falls (which we liked the best!), the lodge is very much a safari lodge - rooms are individual huts with en suite bathrooms. The rooms are clean and decent but quite expensive given they are relatively basic. If you are looking for nature then...
