I went here for a quick get away from Lusaka and it was phenomenal. The owner, Riccardo, is engaging and friendly. The staff are wonderful, knowledgeable and very helpful at all times. The food, however, was the star of this trip for us. It was fresh, light and SO enjoyable. There is an Italian influenced dish each night and the Risotto was THE best I have every had ....even from when I traveled to Italy. This place should not be missed when in Zambia

We went to Kanyemba for the first time as a long weekend getaway from our home in Lusaka. It was the perfect getaway. The drive down is beautiful and once there we were totally relaxed. From the great hospitality to the wildlife viewing to the gorgeous sunsets on the river, it was excellent. The food was top notch, the rooms clean and comfortable, and there were lots of spots around the property to sit, relax, and watch the river.

We had a great stay with Ricardo and his friendly staff. The Italian kitchen style is really superb, what al delightful food is served here !! All activities were top. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. Each with terrace overlooking the river. During the night you can hear the hippo's so the safari feeling and experience is complete here. I can highly recommand this place for a nice stay to visit Lower Zambezi NP

I can not say enough good things about this lodge. The grounds were beautiful the room was perfect and the food was delicious. The game viewing from the boats was the perfect peaceful way to view the animals not to mention the sunsets. This lodge was a perfect way to end out trip to Zambia.

Spent an absolutely amazing three nights at this beautiful lodge. The rooms were delightful, spacious and complimented the whole bush experience. The nights were chilly during our stay but the glow of the hearty fire and hot water bottles kept us toasty. We always received a warm welcome from Zoe and the Team on our return from daily activities. I must say our boatman 'Bruce' was outstanding. He was extremely knowledgeable about the Zambezi River and its inhabitants. We all learnt a great deal. Sunrise and sunsets are a real treat. The food was exceptional and catered for everyone's appetite. An awesome few days. Thank you Ricardo and Team for making our holiday so special. We hope to see you again.
