This place is astounding and hard to top anywhere in the world. As our first stop in Africa after a long journey from Australia we wanted seclusion and peace in stunning luxurious surrounds. That's just what we got. Our nervousness at visiting Zimbabwe was ill founded. The staff and locals in town all happy and friendly and we never felt unsafe. Vic Falls was almost empty due to low tourist numbers making it a special treat. Not something you can claim of many of the other 7 wonders. Back at camp the staff led by manager Jonathon were perfect although when serving the delicious meals each night we had to remind them we were vegetarians again. That's ok, we get that it's an odd concept here!!! Otherwise we can't fault the camp and would return again, if for nothing more than sleeping to the roar if the Zambezi and lazing on the deck watching the mist from the falls across the autumnal dry veldt of the national park. Ill never forget this place.
