It was just amazing and unforgettable - Victoria Falls Island Lodge

Zurich, Switzerland

We stayed after 10 days in South Africa for three days at the Island Treehouse. It was the highlight of our trip. Judy as the manager on the Island in the middle of the Zambesi river, Matthias our Butler and Beks as our guide did an outstanding job. And the kitchen, the food Incredible good. Beks did a river cruise, a game drive and a Victoria Falls visit with us and we learned a lot about nature, people and the country. I really hope we can come back one day! Our stay will just be unforgettable as I had my birthday and I never have been celebrated in such a friendly way.

Island treehouse suites is the best place I've ever stayed

Hamilton, Canada

This place is just amazing. The rooms, service, and safaris were all way above our expectations. We stayed on the island and did 2 river safaris. Reeves did an amazing job of keeping our rooms clean and serving our meals/drinks. We had a few dietary restrictions and they accommodated us very well. All the food and wine were excellent. Peter (Manager) had so much knowledge about the wildlife in the area and helped us feel very comfortable while at the resort. Charlton was our guide and he was the best! He was able to spot animals from so far away and could answer all our questions about wildlife and about zimbabwe. If you have the opportunity to stay on the island, definitely take it! It was the most amazing place I have ever stayed in.
