Fodor's Review

Despite its traditional thatched roof and African artifact adornments, there is a modern feel to this camp's main area, overlooking the Linyanti River. Twisting, dead tree trunks are mounted on stands in pools of water creating sculptures that cleverly mirror the local habitat in times of flood. Beyond the inviting wooden bar, two sunken, semi-circular alcoves, filled with earth-color cushions and each set around a fire, inevitably delay diners before they finally succumb to the appetizing smells emanating from the individually laid, bleached wood tables above. Take a break from your game-viewer and relax on a couch aboard the Queen Silvia barge (only when the water is high) as you watch elephants swim across to Namibia. Or you can take a guided bush walk, a fishing trip, or a visit to the sunken blind where you're eye-level with splashing elephant feet. The massive hand-carved door of your megasize thatch and canvas–ceiling chalet leads into an entrance hall, bedroom with four-poster bed, a huge bathroom with his and her basins and double tiled showers, and a sitting area with access to your outside deck and plunge pool. Don't miss the fascinating curio shop with classy artifacts from all over Africa.
