just back from 5 nights at this awesome place. the location as stated by other reviewers is unbelievable - approaching by boat only adds to the sense of adventure. the lodge is sensitively and discreetly positioned and immaculately kept staff were all charming (precious/agatha/peter kelvin-though it's not really fair to single anyone out) and the fishing guides really know their stuff. food was plentiful and great. bar prices by western standards are good value especially when you consider that you are an extremely captive audience. but it's really all about the location.....stunning outlook...elephants on the opoposite bank and even raiding the bins - crocs drifting lazily by just go there

The relative remoteness of Sekoma adds to its charm. The lodge can only be reached by boat. The tendted rooms are quaint and offer great views on the river and the animal life on the opposite bank. Whether its fishing, game viewing, photography or just relaxing - this is an ideal lodge. The staff are very friendly and the boats all very modern and well maintained. The food was good and they catered for a vegan with ease. I am definitely going again!

The lodge is reached by a 1hr30 road trip from Livingstone and then a 10min boat trip to the island. A very attractive thatched main diningroom lounge and bar area greets one on your arrival. The staff are friendly and always polite and willing to assist. The accomodation is in permanent tents with a bricked ablution area ajoining each unit (very comfortable shower and toilet area). The food that is prepared by the enthusiastic kitchen staff is superb ! The food is really special and a good variety of meals was enjoyed by ourselves over the 5 days we spent there. Supper is taken in the boma area whereas breakfast and lunch is taken in the main lodge area. Now to the Tiger fishing. As pure Fly fishermen, we were given two boats for the 3 of us and two guides, Stephen and Morgan.

This fishing lodge is located an a small island on a side stream of the Zambezi. A short drive from the Kazungula ferry from Botswana (Kasane) the last mile is by boat. The accomodation is in permanant tents with ensuite shower and bathroom. Each has twin beds and simple fittings. The food is wholesome and enthusiastically prepared and served. The staff are at your service and the prime reason for visiting is to catch tiger fish on the Zambezi. The bird watching from the deck of the main lodge is stunning. You may be wakened by the noise of the hippo, the resident elephants or the nocturnal birds. This is a magical place and if fishing or birdwatching are your thing then this is for you. Accessible but remote; simple but comfortable; private but not solitary. When we
