Visited to walk with cheetahs which was amazing. They purr like a domestic cat when petted and we were able to do that. The main lodge was beautiful with a lake our the back and a great view from the bar.

I've been there on september, 2014. It was a great trip for almost a month. Touring with the cheetahs was the best!! At this place u can meet the animals that we've always seen on TV only.

An awesome location to do business whilst away from the buzz of city life. I like the serenity. And to imagine having a game drive... that just completes the equation. The downside is the limited and unreliable internet connection. Am sure something can be done.

We went on a team building trip and even though they never gave us a board room as per our request, management compensated us very well. We were happy with the service. Keep it up.

Just a 25km drive outside of Lusaka you'll find this Game Reserve, the highlight being the 2 cheetahs in the conservancy. You can actually go on walks with them, pat them and learn about them through the knowledgable rangers. Also, on display are the rare...More
