Eagles rest is well functioning, laying at the bring of the lake, safely above, with local fishermen, who can sell you fresh fisk, and take you on a trip. Everything is quert, except the trawlers sometimes fishing at the lake. There are a lot to see in Siavonga, and a lot of hotels to go to to eat out. All rooms have good self catering facilities, DSTV and aircon. The host is helpful and patient. You cansleep 4-5 in a room if you want, you just pay for the room. Mostly we were sitting outside enjoying nature and the view over the lake. You will enjoy Eagles rest.

The chalets at Eagle's Rest are simple but clean. The bedlinen is fresh and well laundered and the daily cleaning service was efficient. The air conditioning worked well and was very much appreciated! The equipment in the kitchen is basic but just about enough for simple food preparation. We had a slight hitch with hot water but the management immediately organised staff to try to resolve the issue - they worked hard until they had done this. The views from the chalet are just amazing and sitting looking over the lake was very restful. Just what we needed. We will definitely return.

The stay was great, very nice place and will be going back soon. The food was not very nice and could do with much improvement but generally the place is sweet and has a beautiful view of the lake. It is a good place to relax and have a great time.

Staff is very friendly right from the gate. We accidentally went to the manager's house as we were looking for the bar. Amazingly, she walked us right to the place we were looking for instead of just giving us directions. The food is fresh and excellent. The environment is refreshing. Scenic view.

The manager "Tom" was so accommodating for us and our family that joined our stay. We found Tom to be very polite and diplomatic with some of the issues we did have. All got resolved. Eagles rest was everything we required and more, the resteraunt served delicous food ie., steak YUM, Overall we found all the staff, Tom and his family we all we could ask for and more.

The entire design of the lodge and campsite is fantastic and the houses are charming with an outdoor kitchen, private barbecue and beautifully situated. It's really worth giving this park an upgrade. We sincerely hope that the owners will take action. At this point, it is highly recommended for anyone who doesn't mind the lack of some luxury.

We loved our stay. Our kids stayed in usa. They could have fun. Especially the speedboat ride. We like the fresh fish. Seeing baby crocodiles was kind scary. Staff were so nice. Watching stars on SkyView App, an amazing experience. Enjoy!

Hello, Do you offer any transportation from Lusaka to Eagles Rest?
Answer from kaiviti2007
Brussels, Belgium154 contributions105 helpful votes
I guess you can take a bus from Lusaka to Siavonga. Not sure about the comfort on this bus and I do not recommend to take an evening or night one for safety reasons.

There are towels provided in the chalets but for the pool you must take your own. As for coffe and tee we didnt have any as it is self catering, how ever i am sure that if you ask for it to be provided when you make your booking they might be able to acomadate youas the owners and staff are very helpfull. Hope you enjoy your stay.
