Wow what a lovely surprise! Sleeping out thank you so much for your adequate and effective service. May God continue to enlarge your territory. I am still in shock thank you.

The staff were warm and friendly and very accommodating. Gwahumbe takes relaxation and comfort to a different level. The meals provided were simply delightful and hearty as well which made the stay even more enjoyable.

Sweet looking lodge, warm and cosy as one would expect. The units are of good size. The food slightly above average. The outdoor patio is great. Didn't get an opportunity to test the spa.

The long gravel roads you meet on your way to Gwahumbe left me wondering if I would be satisfied. Gwahumbe surprised me with an African exterior yet amazingly modern in every corner of its architectural structure. when it was our last day I became so emotional as the breathtaking view of the Riverbend is hard to detach from. it not a place to go just once it so addictive that we are going back in December with more friends. Gwahumbe you are one of a kind. Thank you for an amazing stay and best anniversary thus far.
