It's not an enchanting oasis, as one review suggests. The room was clean, and there is a small pool. However, when I arrived the TV was not working, and it took a while to get it going. The bathroom is clean, but old fashioned. Service was practically non-existent: the receptionist kept disappearing; and the restaurant was serving pretty basic and not very good food. It's not worth the price you're asked to pay. You can do much better in Lusaka.
The worst thing though was payment: I tried to pay with a VISA card (and I had been assured before-hand that I could). The card was refused twice. I didn't have much cash and an ATM was not readily available, but I managed to scrape together enough. A week later I found that the bank had allowed the credit transaction to go through (so I paid twice). I spent a good deal of time on the phone trying to get the Lodge to credit my card account for the additional amount. Though the people at the Lodge have been friendly about this, they can't get it done, which is just about what service at the Lodge is like. So again, I strongly advise against this place.
