What I was promised upon booking was far from what we found. We have 3 toddlers and found our room not conducive for small children. There were ants in the room and the porch was not the cleanest. The shower could have been cleaner too. Beautiful view but we were forced to move to another lodge when management was unable...

There is assurance of rest on this site of the resort town. Sunset view fanatics can achieve their feat without much effort. Add boat cruise to your activities in Siavonga. Clean fresh water beach adds flair to the place. Wine assortment and other cold beverages alleviates hot weather prevalent in the area.

Nice welcome at the reception. The rooms are okay. Could be cleaner and it would help to spray against ants and other little animals. The bar is a nice place to sit. Bar staff is working in polo shirts with big holes and not really clean. Food at the restaurant is a waist of money. The breakfast is very basic...

These self catering chalets are located on the shore of Lake Kariba. The bedrooms are air conditioned and there is a lovely, cool, clean swimming pool with a shaded area nearby. We were there in the heat so these details were essential to our comfort. Each chalet has a well designed BBQ - safe for small children. Breakfast was included...

We stayed in the campground for 2 nights during the hot season. The weather was fine and cooled off during mornings and evenings. The pool and beach bar were great for relaxing during the day. We took a 2 hour boat ride around the lake and to see the dam, which was really pleasant. Food was good, beer cold, and...

Located on one of the many beaches of Lake Kariba, just 15 minutes dfrive from Siavonga, the Eagle's Rest is a great place for sitting back and enjoying the views.
