We stayed at Kwalape Lodge in the chalets at the end of April 2012. The chalets were beautiful and well maintained, the reception staff friendly and helpful and our guides on the cruise, visit to Vic Falls and game drive were brilliant. Unfortunately the restaurant and bar staff were rude, the food was revolting and very expensive. I am well aware of 'Botswana Time' but 1.5 hours for a starter to arrive when you are the only 2 people in the restaurant is beyond reasonable. I can't decide whether the tiny portions were a relief as food was so horrible or just annoying as we were left hungry. Such a shame, as every other apect of the stay was great, but the position of the lodge means you have no real option to eat elsewhere if you are without your own vehicle. There are so many places to stay in Kasane that I would avoid this place.
