We had done a 15 day safari which was very hectic, so Limbo Lodge was the right place to chill out for 3 days. Staff was very helpful & helped with activities, transport & when we had a problem with our double matress they directly put us into another room & we were very comfortable. Thank you all at Limbo for making our stay a homely one, as our food was freshly cooked & served nice & hot. We enjoyed our evenings chatting with you Jonathon & Kingsley. Will stay there again should we visit Livingstone again.

We greatly appreciate your review. We are happy that you chose to stay with us during your holidays in Africa. Livingstone, yes, was your best bait. We enjoyed the moments we spent together.
We look forward to your coming back and staying with us.

After two weeks travelling thru Namibia, botswana and zambia we spent a few extra days at Limbo Lodge and couldn't have wished for anywhere more relaxing. The place is well situated just ouf of town and is a little basic and rustic but on the whole it is more than adequate. Certainly improvements could be made and its definitely "no frills" but that only adds to its charm. The rooms are more than adequate and the bedding and towels clean and fresh. The food is wholesome and freshly cooked and served piping hot. The staff are all helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The girls on reception will help to book excursions etc and will assist with anything and Mary does a great job in the kitchen. Special praise for Jonathan who is always on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly. We loved our stay and especially our after dinner chats with Jonathan and the owner Kingsley.

Thank you so much for your kind review on our property. We appreciate that you chose to stay in our Lodge during your tour of Southern Africa. We are more than happy that we made your stay "relaxing" and memorable.
We have no trouble with genuine guests in making their stay have much value. We pride in making our guests fresh cooked food for their enjoyment.
We are also happy that we are not in the centre of town and therefore create an enabling environment to relax without the city noise and confusion at night.
We look forward to your coming back and staying with us.

After our 15 day safari we stayed in Limbo Lodge as my sister & I with partners re-visited places of our childhood back in 1967-69. Limbo Lodge seemed the perfect place to stay as it was affordable. The staff were very helpful and were interested in our stories about the past. It is not a 5 star place but it had the warmth and comfort of a simple home. The choices of food was small but it was cooked fresh & came to the table hot, unlike other places, where we stayed which were 4-5 stars. There is room for improvement, which we pointed out to the owner but we would stay there again should the need arise.

Room tip: Choose a room with 2 single beds as the foam mattresses in double bed are a little outdated.

The room and pool were fine and the staff were always friendly but I didn’t really think the place or the staff were set up for guests that want more than a room for the night. I stayed for 5 nights. The main problems were that I had to decide what I wanted to eat for dinner a day in advance so they could buy the ingredients, (no good for travellers and I have never stayed anywhere that I have had to do this before), internet was intermittent and only works outside reception and I kept getting bitten by mosquitos and the TV channels were limited and fuzzy. I did talk to the manager about these issues and he was apologetic but it didn’t improve things.

We are grateful that you stayed with us and made comments about our establishment. We understand your concerns and do respect your views. We have a restaurant that serves to the convenience of our guests. We therefore do request our clients to order at least a few hours in advance so we are set for them. It doesn't have to be a day in advance.
Like anywhere else in town the internet is not perfect. We have tried to get the service providers to improve the service but it has always been a challenge. We are working on charging the provider to see how this would help matters.
Our aim is always to make our guests stay pleasant.
We look forward to your coming back and staying with us again.
