Detailed Reviews
Tony C wrote a review Jan 2018

Mokorro Hotel was a great surprise. Excellent food, best in Zambia. Choice between Indian, Chinese, Indo-Chinese and usual steaks and burgers. Rooms are clean and spacious. Centrally located. Noisy over weekends due to loud music in the city centre. 2.5km from the KCM mine entrance. The staff are very accommodating and will assist with requests. Price is very reasonable considering accommodation costs throughout Zambia.

There is a skydeck with a lookout over the town. A bar, lot of space available for sit down meals.

Thank you Mokorro looking forward to staying there again.

I always look forward to staying at the Mokorro when I'm in Zambia on business, the rooms are spacious, clean, modern and extremely comfortable. The staff are friendly and always willing to accommodate you. The restaurant is one of the nicest places to eat on the Copperbelt and always look forward to their authentic Indian cuisine.

We went to Chingola for business for the first time and stayed at the Mokorro Grill and Lodge. Having never been to Africa we were a bit worried about our adventure. As it turns out, the staff at the Mokorro Grill and Lodge made our stay a complete pleasure and we were impressed with their attention to all our needs. Nothing was too much trouble and when we needed the conference room at the last minute, they were more than happy to get everything ready for us. Overall, our trip was a success and we'll be back to visit our new suppliers again shortly and we'll definitely being staying with the Mokorro Grill and Lodge again.

It's a conveniently located hotel, right in the city Centre of Chingola and it has some comfortable rooms and a nice bar on site where you can catch a game. Some of its draw backs though are the lack of parking space as well as the fact that the shower handles are wrongly labeled. The fact that the owner is new to the hotel industry kind of shows in the fact that the staff are still trying to come to grips with their roles and hopefully this will happen soon.
Not a bad hotel, just has some way to go to become great.

Clean place that is very centrally located .

The food is ok but the portions are huge, unfortunately the preparation takes a long time which is not so good when you are in a hurry. Sort from that it is nice place to stay and eat .

I have stayed at Mokoro lodge numerous times going back to 2009. Usually the service, rooms and meals are great. However a recent experience has soured the relationship some what. Earlier in January 2017 I was contacted by the owner who said I had underpaid for a stay in June 2016. This stay was for two people unconnected to me, so I requested copies of their accounts/ invoices. This proved that the dates were correct and the names, however I do not know these people. The company name on the invoice was not mine. I was not in zambia let alone Chingola in June 2016. Even the credit card slip used to pay showed that it was not mine. I was asked for my Proof of payments. Since supplying proof of my stays in 2016 I have heard nothing from the owner nor reception who are responsible for billing. No apology, nothing. Pity since this experience now opens up the possibility of staying elsewhere in Chingola when I am next there. Now will look at protea hotel ( now Marriot), icon hotel, and some of the B&Bs. Always keep your proof of payments for at least a year to prevent uncomfortable situations.

This is an ideal hotel for business travel. The rooms are spacious, have work space and the connectivity is adequate. But when will hotels provide free WiFi. We are living in 2017 management. Not the dark ages!!!!
