I don't agree with the negativity in some of these reviews. The Country Lodge is in Mongu. It's not going to be Claridges in London. This is a relatively far-out part of Zambia that experiences common water and power cuts - and yet the Country Lodge still manages to deliver a great standard of hotel that wouldn't be out of place in the continent's richest cities (they have their own generator and water supply, by the way).
The beer is cold, the restaurant is decent (tasty local fish and good nshima and relish), the rooms are comfortable, the mosquito nets are new, the grounds are pleasant, and importantly the service is great.
If I find myself in Mongu again, I'll definitely be tucking into fresh Zambezi fish and a cold Castle at the Country Lodge.
By the way - for people who complain that there's only three things on the menu... I've had some of the most delicious meals of my life in places where you ask for a menu and get the response: "Yes, is chicken!"
