I would recommend this boat over other more expensive tour operators in Livingstone. Purely because it was all local staff that I dealt with and it is better value at $65 for 2 hours boat cruise. Furthermore, the bigger boats set off after us so our little boat (space for 30 people, only 5 of us on board!) set the... More

I am a Livingstone "home boy" residing in Lusaka.The originality & basic lay out/aproach is what you are looking for.The owner now makes his own "in house boerewors" from ordinary to his Famous Ring Sting Wors,marinates the chicken with an old secret recipe,as well as the marinated spareribs are to DIE for.The informal warmth & rustic swing you get at...

The river cruise is worth it for the pretty sunset and the wildlife is quite good on the sides of the river. However the 'booze cruise' as it is advertised is somewhat lacking. The meal was ok but fairly ordinary. The 'all snacks included' was one bowl of pop corn! The drinks did not include eg sparkling water or gin... More
