Located in town, Zig Zag is quiet and has a wonderful restaurant. The breakfast is great and included in the room. The rooms are small and have no TV or wifi. That said this is how they are advertised. There are great areas to relax and hang out that are not in the rooms. The restaurant has an open feel...

Unfortunately, a mosquito infiltrated the mosquito met somehow and bit me on the eye! Ruben and the other staff are also very friendly. I had a bad case of gastro (long), and...

Lynn and Mercy and their team were great hosts. We stayed with them for a week and we felt right at home. They are warm, friendly and great at giving out tips on what to do around Livingstone. In terms of the facilities, it is very good value for money, and you get what you pay for. The food was...

Fantastic place in Livingstone - located far enough away from the center(s) of town that you aren't hassled by touts, but close enough to walk, if necessary. Staff are excellent (and very honest - I didn't double-check a bill and they caught the overage the next day!) and and rooms are very comfortable. No trouble arranging activities and the food...

I went to Zambia with a service learning group. Instead of staying in well known hotels, we decided to stay in a local hotel. It was a really hotel. People were so nice and people always smiled back and asked how was our day
