Traveller Reviews

  • What stood out for us? African hospitality - everywhere we went we were so warmly received. The smiles, jokes, personal touch and attention to detail we received in all our camps/lodges was memorable. Etali, Stanley and Camp Moremi - we enjoyed ourselves at all three places. The accommodation you arranged for us everywhere was great and suited us as a family.

  • Stanley’s – beautiful tent, delicious food and lovely staff. We enjoyed the experience with the elephants!

    David Sims, October 2015
  • The Victoria Falls at Livingstone are one of the greatest views in the word and to ride the Zambezi river with a 800 HP boat was fantastic.

    Marco Radice, August 2012
  • Stanley Safari Lodge was great! I told Clara and Pascal that I selected another camp and that you highly recommended their lodge and booked it for me. They were very happy to hear that! Clara put us in the Honeymoon Chalet and it was spectacular.

    Kyle Denson, August 2012
  • Stanley Safari lodge was very relaxing. The open rooms were quirky and certainly different to anything that we expected. Getting to the falls at 8am when there was no one else around was special.

    Graham Millard, May 2012
  • We loved the open door honeymoon suite! It was such a neat concept and we absolutely were spoiled by our gracious butler, Peter. We'll never forget him.

  • Stanley Lodge in Livingstone was beautiful , and my only regret is that we we could not spend another night or so there. The manager was wonderful and the falls were spectacular.

  • Stanley Safari Lodge in Zambia: they are really lovely people: the manager came to the airport to welcome us and, after, Thomas was very ill and we had to go to the clinic in emergency. One of the manager arranged us an appointment, and the other one accompagned us there and stayed with us in order to be sure that everything was ok. And the manager drived us back to the airport in his own car in order that it sould be more comfortable for the kids! The lodge is beautifull, the food really delicious. And the Victoria Falls are amazing... The manager arranged us a trip on the Zimbabwean side, and both sides were really worth seeing. I will encourage all my friends to go there, and to stay at Stanley Safari Lodge.

  • Our first Lodge (Stanley Safari Lodge, near Victoria Falls) was probably the nicest in terms of the facility, although the others were also lovely. We had an "open" room at Stanley. There's nothing quite like bathing in a large tub looking out at the African night sky.

    Morgan Goheen, March 2010
  • Very nice comfortable lodge, our accommodation was very spacious and well appointed. The main lodge building, gardens and swimming pool areas were lovely. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
