Very nice place to stay and very helpful and friendly staff. But... A boiler broke down in one of our rooms and started leaking. This seemed to be a reason to cut down the power in our rooms for more then 5h (while they were only working on it for about 1h) in a temperature of close to 40 Celsius,...

With multiple hydro- power projects going on in this boarder area, a short trip to relax across the shore was worth it. Perfect sunset views and other magnificent scenery over Lake Kariba and the Zambezi river. Very cheerful staff.

We visited siavonga town for a couple of days and stayed at Lake Kariba Inn. The food was great,so were the rooms. The staff were pleasant and helpful too. On our last night,we had a great sunset cruise followed by brilluant dinner. All in all, a few days well spent.

Checked into 2 rooms(Dbl/Sngl).. The Air Con did not work properly throughout the night.. The water pressure were drips!..The toilet did not flush in one room. The Beds are hard as if you are sleeping on wood planks. The rooms need renovations and updating. Instead of building more unecessary rooms the Owners should fix the existing ones and lower the...

The shower had mold and the toilet didnt work properly. Had fillet fish first night that made me sick and...

The place is so tranquil and relaxing. Had a great time and the views are amazing. I would urge you to carry your own meds as i requested for some antacids which were unavailable...and my request for milk took forever. Other than that it is a fantastic place and I would definitely go back!

Spent a weekend here recently. Stayed in Villa 2 on the lake side of the hotel. As with some other reviews I agree that these rooms are a bit tired and could do with an overhaul, but that being said, I would go back again over the other accommodation in Siavonga. The villas face the lake with incredible views. We...

We had a wonderful stay at Lake Kariba Inns. We got the executive room that has a view of the lake, waking up to this was amazing and so peaceful. The room has a private pool although it's too small to swim in we just sat in there which was cool considering the Siavonga heat. There's alot to do we...

We came to Lake Kariba Inn for the second time in April 2016. The rooms are beautifully refurbished since our last visit in 2013. We stayed in room 11 - a beautiful room with a large seating area. The air con is cold and the view is fantastic. There are still a couple hiccups... for example, it is difficult to...

We spent to days at the Lake Kariba Inns in December 2015. We decided to take a road trip to Siavonga to see the magnificent Lake Kariba especially with all the media reports about the water level being low. So we arrived at Lake Kariba Inns without a reservation and we were pleasantly surprised that the ladies at the front...
