Seated on the banks of the Zambezi, the hotel's architects knew how to respect nature and let you enjoy outdoors even while inside. Buck, wild pig and birds play on the golf course; my husband woke up to find a monkey visiting in our room when we left our screen open.
We came through in quiet season so we had the pool to ourselves and lots of attention from the staff. Some niggles with a faulty faucet in my bathroom on day one was my one gripe the whole four days we were here.
I recommend the Boma restaurant; touristy but the food is authentically local. The sunset cruise is also two-thumbs-up. We saw crocodile, hippo and elephant before we took pictures of the sun disappearing into the river.
Overall- rural with comfort and no pressure. We 'll be back.
