My intention of booking at Zigzag was to have a comfortable place to rest in the evenings without spending a large sum of money on lodging. I found Zigzag to be simple and clean. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. It was so nice to have a coffee shop and restaurant on-site. It's far enough out of town to make...

Zig Zag is a special place, not the standard hotel or lodge you could find in Livingstone. It has this magic created its inhabitants for whom true feelings and sense of hospitality matter. If you come here and you were planning on spending one night, be ready to stay longer. You will quickly be taken care of, but you will...

This review means so much to me and all my team. You stayed with us when we had just lost one of our own and I said goodbye to you as I was heading off to the funeral. You sum up exactly what we want to be, how we want our clients to feel and what we believe about hospitality....

A wonderful little place with air conditioning in rooms and a nice restaurant on premises. Small but clean rooms with mosquito netting. Swimming pool was nice as well as art fixtures around property. Professional UK lady quit the corporate world and bought this delightful place while she funds local children's education and rescues animals.

At first we were a bit apprehensive , interesting hotel. The staff & their fearless leader were very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was a trouble. Pool very refreshing, amenities adequate. Will be back again in another week!

We take a group to Livingstone every July and are never disappointed. I couldn't begin tell you all the things Lynne and her staff do for us each year. We lived in Zambia for many years and the atmosphere at Zig Zag is so relaxing and is Africa at its best. The food is great and the rooms are clean....

The Zig Zag is situated 10 mins from Vic Falls and a short walk up to town, so ideally located and great value for money. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, especially Lynne and Mercy who couldn't have done more for us - organising our various trips and sorting issues when they arose. Highly recommend the Zig Zag

Our room was okay. The towels were dusty, but apart from that it was clean. Most of the staff were really nice and helpful, but one waitress was outright rude to us. we had a tour booked and had to leave at 7:50 and confirmed, that it would be enough time to have breakfast at 7 (when they start serving)....

Thanks very much for taking the time to write this review and I'm so sorry that things weren't up to standard. The behaviour of the waitress was unacceptable and I have spoken to her and the other staff. No one should have to experience rudeness and I apologise unreservedly.
