The hotel is good and offers good accomodation and conference facilities. Though Kariba is not my favourite place since it has few activities. I have gone there several times both on leisure and business

We stayed at this resort for 2 nights in April. Room suited our needs although it was nowhere near executive suite standards. Hotel is clean, staff are friendly and attentive but food was average. Very little options for vegans/vegetarian. Most of the meals on the menu were unavailable due to insufficient ingredients. A lot to do around the resort including... More

game drive and boat cruising are the best main attraction, You get to view different animals like elephants and hippos. The hotel room is neat , nothing extra ordinary. The atmosphere is quiet, relaxing and clean. A good break from hectic cities .

The hospitality is good. They have service excellence in all spheres. From the management to housekeeping.home comfort away from home make a date next time you are in Zimbabwe.They have partnered with boat owners and you are treated to a cruise on the famous lake kariba and experience the tranquillity and the beautiful sunset.

Organised a beach dinner with the food and beverage manager Solomon Munyeruki. The setting was spectacular, well set dinner table for six with a bush fire close to us so as to chase wild animals; as it is a wild animal infested area. Had a three course meal. The waiters had a mix up of our orders though we had... More

We paid top dollar for a deluxe room but it was very tired as is the whole hotel. It is in dire need on investment and having some real money spent on it or maybe demolished and re-built. It dates from the 1970s and the view of Lake Kariba is its only saving grace. We awoke to find that there... More
