My friend and I stayed for 2 nights in June 2013 on separate occasions before and after a canoe trip on the Zambezi. We were gobsmacked when we first saw the accommodation - a beautiful chalet with magnificent views of Lake Kariba. Jackie and Tom are wonderful hosts. All wine and food was included in the price and both are plentiful. All meals are home cooked and Jackie's skill in the kitchen is legendary. Jackie even packed us a breakfast "to go" on our last morning when we had to leave at 5:00am. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I have travelled around the world and this is by far the best place I have ever stayed. I would go back to Kariba just to stay in the Hornbill Lodge again.
