We spent 4 nights here and had a great time. There are 11 tents (one is a family tent with an extra bedroom) that are connected by boardwalks to the main dining lodge. The tents are spacious, comfortable, and well-designed with sufficient storage space and a large bathroom (shower, sink, toilet). All the tents face the Zambezi, so the views are spectacular. The staff is very friendly and professional. The guides are terrific. Activities include game drives / walks, canoeing, and rides on pontoon boats. The food was very good.
Animals seen: many kinds of antelope, elephants (everywhere!), lions, Cape buffalo, leopard, civit, baboons, monkeys, hippos, crocodiles, and dozens of bird species.
