This is a friendly, well-managed and peaceful place to stay, in a quiet cul-de-sac off the main roads yet near enough to town for a pleasant 5 minute stroll there. It is very good value and the staff are all excellent. The menu has local fish, authentic Zambian dishes, as well as Western meals, and there is a reasonable selection... More

Two friends of mine and myself spent four nights in August 2014 at Chanters Lodge, a basic, small scale, clean, pleasant place. Good price quality balance. The owner went to great lengths to make our stay pleasant; he sorted one potential problem adequately which we highly appreciated. A nice 20 mins' walk from the hotel takes you to the small... More

Thanks for your review. Correct, at the moment free wifi is only available in public areas, we hope soon to be able to source the right equipment to make it also available in the rooms. Sometimes in Zambia these things are not as easy as they might seem! More

I'm no fan of big hotels, so Chanter's is my sort of place. You feel at home, as Richard and his wonderful team are genuinely friendly, none of that 'corporate welcome' stuff. We had good meals here, from a menu that caters to local, and 'international' tastes. Vegetarians are not forgotten either. Rooms are big, clean, and air-conditioned and the... More

I am in two minds about if Chanters deserves a 2 or 3. There were numerous problems during our stay, bed bugs, mosquito nets that did not fit, rooms not being cleaned. That being said, they did a lot of things right. The breakfast was slow to come and even though the waitress asked how we would like our eggs... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our operation. We would like to comment as follows:- 1. Bed Bugs and Bedroom Cleaning We vehemently deny that one of your rooms had bed bugs. A rigorous inspection of the beds and linen in the room at the time revealed no pest infestation, furthermore two children were sharing one bed but... More

Stayed there in December 2011 and the experience was memorable. Very polite staff and the owner Richard is very reliable and very helpful. We would definitely stay there again. I found the surrounding including the pool relaxing, somewhere to stay if you prefer a quiet and relaxing time.

We stayed Chanters Lodge during visiting Victoria Fall. Mr. Chanter met us at the airport, it's great when we arrived a place we never been before. He also provided us an overview of the area so we can plan our activities effectively. This lodge is not a luxury resort, but it provided us all the needs for visiting Victoria Fall.

My boyfriend and I fully enjoyed the hospitality, attentiveness, and warmth of Richard and his staff during our stay at Chanter's. The lodge was very relaxing with great food and in an accessible location. We are already talking about our next trip to Zambia (whenever that is!) and our inevitable stay at Chanter's Lodge.
