The staff was amazing, rooms where inviting and relaxing, and the food was great. It is very relaxing sitting on the deck overlooking the river while enjoying a nice cocktail from the bar. Overall this is a great place to stay and I would recommend this to all of my friends. I am planning on returning to Zambia in three... More

I just finished my eigth stay there with my tour company. My clients are always very happy with the Natural Mystic. The staff is friendly and accommodating, the location is prime. It is just minutes from the magnificent Victoria Falls, but far enough away to not have to deal with the noise of all the other lodges situated closer to... More

My fiance an I booked Natural Mystic for 10 nights and held our wedding, and reception dinner at the lodge on the 8th September 2011. Firstly, I should explain that we are both from Africa, and know what to expect for our money. Also, we had a strict budget and therefore could not afford a 5 star venue or accommodation.... More

After 10 days of game drives in national parks we were looking for a nice, relaxing and comfortable place which we could afford. Natural Mystic was exactly it! Out of the mess, elegant but relaxed, perfectly integrated in the beautiful natural scenery, with the right price. It's 20 km from town so we booked a car to avoid taxi rates... More

We (family of 4 adults) stayed at the Natural Mystic Lodge for 1 night in 2 bungalows and were glad that we could leave after 1 night. The place is extremely run down. The elevated wood path to the bungalow is so old, shaky and decaying that you do not feel safe walking over it. The bungalows are really dirty... More

I stayed here for two (2) nights in May 2011. Since it was off season, my friend and I were the only guests, so we had the entire place to ourselves with the staffs' full attention. The drive from Livingstone Airport to NML takes about 30-40 minutes. The lodge is located next to the Zambezi River, so the last 5... More
