A very interesting place for birdwatching, never had a name been more appropriate, a couple of Haliaeetus Vocifer have their nest on the little island right in front of the... More

Slightly difficult to get to but well worth it. Beautiful rooms with a stunning view of the lake. Friendly staff and management. Great dinner and bar prices. Breakfast is great value but could be fresher.

Eagles rest was everything that we needed after 5 days of camping. The rooms was neat and clean. You can't ask for a better view. The food and the service at the bar was good. The children enjoyed the playground and the almost beach feeling!

Having driven the dusty road of Zambia for 2 days, arriving at Eagles Rest was a delight. The reception staff were by efficient and we had our accommodation immediately (so unlike many places especially in Southern Africa!)

I worked at a mission station in Southern Zambia recently and had a weekend getaway at Eagles's Rest which was an inexpensive alternative in the area. On a taxi tour I visited some of the other lodges in the area that were a great deal more posh but also considerably more expensive. The service from Eagles rest (by e-mail and... More
