“PURE FISHING PARADISE -then throw in pure comfort, stunning food and outstanding service”
Reviewed April 27, 2011

Got back today from an unbelievable week of superb fishing. Caught 64 kg's of fish in 6 days of fishing including 1x 8.5kg beaut and 7 or 8 over 4.5kg fish - all Tiger. River was high and fast flowing and still did fantastic fishing. Another chap caught an 8.8kg. Fishing guides know their stuff. Food was tasty and wholesome and plenty of it. Service was great. It is a fantastic place to go to and I URGE serious tiger fishermen to go.

The host and hostess are incredibly accommodating. They met my every need. They provided me a boat tour of the Zambezi (I would check on availability for this with them), and a guide to walk around the nearby grounds, including walking by/through a genuine Africa village. I enjoyed being so far out in nature, in a beautiful setting, to truly experience Africa. I give them a very strong recommendation and would include them for any trip. Please just note that it is not practical to stay at the lodge if you anticipate going back and forth to Victoria Falls, given the approximately two-hour drive. Rather, I would see the Falls before, or after, and stay at Shackelton' s while on Route.

I spend one night in this delightful lodge on the way into Botswana. Shackletons is about 1 hour drive from the Victoria Falls but it is worth the effort to get away from the more touristy areas. We were welcomed by a crowd of singing, smiling wide-eyed children. The lodge is on the Upper Zambezi river and the first night was spend enjoying a roast dinner on the deck surrounded by candles and log fires. The room/shower were cosy and clean and hot water bottles supplied! Highly recommended.
