We've been coming for years and we love it! Stunning location, beautifully built chalets, friendly staff, fishing with Agri and so on. And what a pleasure to meet Jo and Clive, the new managers, who could not have been more hospitable. The new camp at Lunga Island looks fantastic.
This is not camping! While staying at Lunga Island we never had to make our beds, light the fire, cook anything or wash our clothes! If you have the option to bring your own food and drinks and have children, Lunga Island is a perfect option. You only have to worry about keeping the kids away from the crocodiles and hippos instead of the lion, leopard, elephant, crocodiles and hippos at Hippo Lodge.
"Hippo Lodge is Magical!!"
Gorgeous location, incredible staff, beautiful accommodation, amazing food, exciting wildlife. Can't fault anything about hippo. Spent the mornings on the veranda surrounded by puku, bush buck and a family of warthog, most days were spent out on the river with John, joe or agri, learning to fish, saw elephants crossing the water, lions stealing a leopard kill and hippos a plenty.
