We spent 3 nights at Spurwing in October 2013 and what a great experience. Spurwing is situated about an hours boat ride across Lake Kariba from Kariba town, and while we had our own boat the resort offers daily transfers. The resort comprises about 30 chalets and luxury tents (actually just chalets with canvas sides that roll up on a very hot day). All units face the lake and have spectacular views. At the centre of the resort is a beautiful pool area, open bar and open dining area, all under thatch. The resort is full board, and the meals are fantastic. Finally, can I say that the staff are amazing. No request is too much, and everyone has a wonderful Zimbabwean smile. A special thank you to Christopher and his team who look after the boats and boating, and who will give any guest an amazing experience, whether it is to take you out to catch your first Tigerfish, or whether you simply want to enjoy a sundowner while admiring the elephants on neighbouring Fothergill.
I simply can't wait to come back.
