Terrible service, felt like unwelcome guests
We didn't feel super welcomed here. There were lots of inconveniences due to terrible service that could have been avoided. For example, I confirmed pick up at the airport a few days before but when we got there on time, no one was there to get us. We had to ask the airport to call them. I asked about a tour to Zambia for Victoria Falls. The hotel said that wasn't possible. I asked them to double check and I never got a response. They did end up setting it up for us but our drive around Zambia was super sketchy, running his own errands the whole time. The food was also extremely expensive, especially considering the bad quality. They also tried to charge us double for a Chobe safari so we booked through another hotel. When we left, I asked ok so are we all good, do we need my credit card again? She said no and we left. Ten minutes later, our driver got a call and we turned around-turns out we did need to swipe our card again. Not sure why she hadn't done that while I was there and even asked her...also, expect a hour for anything. A chicken sandwich via room service will take a hour. A refill for an iced tea at lunch will take 15 minutes. Overall, service was awful for the price they charge. Worst service we've had in awhile...

The service could be slow, but overall our stay was lovely. We had a minor issue with our room the first evening, but were swiftly moved into another (and upgraded) room. Great setting, amazing excursions and local guides...and of course, the wonderful views.
