John and Sarah immediately welcome you into their camp as if it is your own home, with welcome drinks and snacks and discuss what you want to do with your time on the island. The rooms are lovely, with mosquito nets and huge beds. The outdoor bathrooms are luxurious! We were there in the low season but still managed to see buk, hippos and crocodiles. The open campfire is fantastic to sit around after amazing meals with John and Sarah and their library is open to quests, with everything from native wildlife to Jamie Oliver. Will definitely be back. Ps be sure to try all the local hot sauces!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A private Eco Lodge set 22kms upstream along the Zambezi River on an island, Zimbabwean side. Close enough to the Falls to enjoy all it has to offer, but far enough away to experience authentic African hospitality. Small and personal with only six lodges the Camp is a favourite for "off the beaten track" guests as well as individual travellers. Camp managers Sonia and Garry and their gracious staff, along with a sprinking of up close and personal game encounters, make this an excellent choice. ... more less
