Old Drift absolutely exceeded our expectations. The setting is so peaceful and full of wildlife. We will never forget waking to the bellowing of hippos, laughing at the monkeys from our deck, watching the adorable warthogs at lunch, and that hilarious planter-destroying elephant who came calling at dinner. The design of the rooms is a cut above "glamping," even at its very finest. Such a fun luxury to shower/bathe outdoors, on the banks of the Zambezi, and to sleep with the tent rustling overhead. The decor felt authentic, wonderfully retro, calming and luxurious. The outings were terrific and we had our own assigned guide. The entire staff is outstanding, sometimes anticipating our desires before we even knew them ourselves. We always felt so welcome and pampered. Our stay was magical!
