We stayed here with my family, we booked 2 standard rooms. The booking was for 2 nights and we ended up staying only 1 night. The general condition of the rooms are shocking. Both rooms smelt pretty bad, a moldy smell. This is clearly from humidity from the dam. In addition our room, the linen was old, stained and torn....

With a few changes from my last visit almost 10 years ago. The place is peaceful, serene and as usual the view of Lake Kariba does not disappoint despite the noticeable reduction in the water level. However, service is still good. For those who cannot do without internet service, connectivity was good the entire period I was here. a little...

The rooms are air conditioned with a spacious bathroom and a mini fridge. In the room, you can either use the air con or the fan....

I have explored nine places of lodging on both shores of Lake Kariba and rated this top. Exquisite executive rooms on the top offer awesome views of the lake. Excellent views from area surrounding the helipad.

Nice, clean and quiet place. Best views on Kariba lake, clean tiny pool, friendly management. Wide range of options to spend time nicely, boat cruises, conference rooms, enough parking space. But rates are extremely high in correspondence with the service. I'd come back if it was twice cheaper.

Lake Safari Lodge was a disappointment. The food was poor, rooms were a bit run down and the service was very hard to come by. It's the kind of place where you see a half dozen waiters standing around near the bar and you have to get up and walk over to them to ask for a beverage. Lake Safari...
