As my wife was busy working in Lusaka and i had a few days to spare i decided to visit Livingstone to see the falls. I was going to to be the advanced party investigating Livingstone. Using Bradt and tripsdvisor I chose Chanters. Not only is the lodge a peaceful and friendly place to stay, quite unexpectedly Richard e-mailed to... More

Chanter's lodge is place with a friendly, cosy atmosphere. Richard and the staff are very nice people and they make you feel welcome. I came for work and I enjoyed this quiet place just a walk to the town. It has is a small pool by the garden to take a dip and food service all day long. I have... More

Chanters was recommended by a friend and it did not dissapoint. I was travelling with a male friend and on arrival Richard had given us two separate rooms for the price of one which was very much appreciated. His staff were very helpful. The room was comfortable and the lodge a short walk into town. Easy access to all activities.... More

I have stayed at Chanter's a number of times over the years. The lodge is in a quiet neighborhood in Livingstone, is clean, comfortable, with a delightful garden for relaxing after a day on safari, at the falls or visiting the many sights and attractions in the area. The small plunge pool was a welcome treat in the hot late... More

Thanks for the review. It is unfortunate that the power company switch off during the night twice per week at the moment and eight hours daily on most other days. We do not operate the generator between 23.30 and 04.45 on those two nights so as the noise does not disturb the neighbours. There is actually only one room at... More

Very nice room, showers that I would like at home! Very peaceful time with helpful and friendly staff. Would recommend to anyone. Even though there was power sharing in Zambia a generator was provided to keep the air conditioning up and running.

Chanter’s Lodge is a nice quaint spot with 12 or so lodges. Richard himself picked us up directly from the airport and brought us to the lodge which was really nice. Richard and his staff are so welcoming and helpful. We stayed for 3 nights. The rooms are nice and had a refrigerator, shower with separate tub and mosquito net... More

This is my second time at Chanter's. Richard, the owner, will pick you up personally at the airport or bus station. Transfers are free, full English breakfast included, location is walkable distance from downtown and the craft market, and the rates are very affordable, allowing you to spend your money on more activities. Richard even upgraded me to the suite... More

Very comfortable and affordable. Richard and his team Anastasia were super helpful. Although we didn't get to meet Richard as he was sick he still managed to be in touch with us, and they paid for our Taxi as they couldn't pick us up nor drop us off to and from the bus terminal. The location is great. It's central... More

I didn’t meet Richard personally but his staff were very friendly and helpful. The lodge location is within walking distance of the town centre, about 15-20 minutes depending on where you’re going.
