The Lodge offers a serene haven from the hot African sun with its well-thought-out design.  It is located just a few meters from the edge of the river where travellers are encouraged to relax and rejuvenate while enjoying the panoramic views of the Zambezi River and the occasional majestic elephant passing by.  The sound of native birds as they feed provides delightful background “music”.  Guests have full use of the refreshing swimming pool.
