5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Excellent staff (Mirriam, Matthews, Mike, Ernestine, Paulina all very friendly and helpful), good value for money for a private room, well laid out with pool, catering facilities and mix of dorms and private rooms, good location for access to everywhere. I had a wonderful stay especially as I spent more of my time inside the lodge than outdoors.

    Nice grounds and good that they offer free airport pick-up and a drop-off to the falls. Room, bathroom and kitchen were covered in mosquitos and the mosquito net on the bed didn’t stop them getting in. The top bunk is pretty dangerous, be careful not to slip or catch your foot in the mosquito net if climbing down. No lockers in the room and other guests left used plates and cups over the floor.
