“Very relaxing spot by the pool”

Light meals were very good. Plenty of staff to attend to your every need. Love the art work throughout the Zambezi Sun.

“Enjoy a meal while relaxing and listening to real African musicians”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We decided to visit this pool bar for something to eat and drink. Upon arrival we were acknowledged almost immediately by a friendly waitron neatly dressed in his uniform. He provided us with a menu that also included some nice cocktails. While enjoying a tasty meal we were entertained by an African band playing real traditional music. The staff politely offered us re-fills on our drinks, and was proactive in clearing away used glasses and crockery.

“Good place to unwind”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

A nice place to relax and unwind .Nice bar and swimming pool. Cocktails are expensive and the bar snacks are reasonably priced but not as tasty as one would expect.
