Guest Testimonial

Fiona exceeded our expectations. We had a tour guide (Mohammed) in Zanzibar and we rate him as one of the very best guides we’ve ever had (and we have travelled a lot). Mohammed's knowledge was outstanding compared to anything we had read.

The park was initially known as Kazinga National Park, before it was renamed in 1954 to commemorate a visit by Queen Elizabeth. Accommodation various from standard rooms to luxury cottages. All rooms are perfectly situated to view the Lakes George and Edward. The swimming pool with its poolside bar is a perfect place to enjoy the magnificent views followed by a drink around a roaring campfire before sumptuous dinner.
