Guest Reviews

 Apart from the yummy food, nice gathering areas and ample shade, my favorite part about Reed Mat was the friendly staff. Thanks for the great memories!

David Thorton

Upon our arrival in Lusaka, Reed Mat welcomed us to Lusaka with large vans and a lovely dinner. The variety of large rooming options was perfect for housing our group of students. The rooms were clean and mozzie nets were provided. Vicky at the reception and Phalesy in the kitchen were especially accomodating and friendly, working out plans for our school group and making sure we were all eating well
