Excellent value for a reasonable price. Transfers to and from the airport and breakfast included. Calming, quiet atmosphere. Clean, safe lodge. Beautiful, intimate garden where you can eat, or just sit and enjoy the quite sound of running water. Attentive, pleasant staff. Richard, the owner, went out of his way to make sure all of our needs were met. He... More

Spent 2 nights there. Quiet and nice hotel with helpful staff. Activities can be arranged. Just a very short taxi ride to Livingstone centre (like 3 minutes). Transfer from/to Airport included. Breakfast included and satisfactory. Clean and cosy rooms with comfy beds. Wi-fi in lobby and restaurant. Nice litlle pool in shaded 'patio' with lots of trees.

We stayed in a family room for one night as part of a longer road trip. Service and communication (reservations, confirmation etc.) was very good, email replies came quickly. The room was fine, though nothing amazing, and good value. We had dinner and breakfast and the restaurant was not great - service was slow and the full breakfast (included in... More

Richard was great, quick to respond while booking and pleasant shuttle service. The service was good, everyone is very attentive. The rooms were a bit dark and old. Probably could have been cleaned a bit more thoroughly, (finger prints on mirror, no trash can in room/bathroom) among a couple of other details I noticed. But over all it was comfortable... More

Chanters Lodge was my best possible stop in Livingston, both at the start and at the end of my trip to Zambia. Richard and his staff were helpful, friendly, and made me feel at home, even though I was traveling solo. The Lodge is in a quiet part of Livingston, clean, with a very nice pool area and outdoor eating... More

We wanted a decent base for a 10 day stay in Livingstone, combining organised activities with some more free range exploring and general chilling out. Chanters Lodge was ideal for us, with good basic facilities and service at a price that doesn't break the bank – and includes a cooked breakfast. The location is pleasant with a nice garden and...

We had a great stay in Chanters. It's fabulous value for money and the staff were so helpful. They booked all our trips and made sure we were very well looked after. The accommodation is very nice for the price and the breakfasts are good too.

If you are after a luxury experience in Livingstone, this may not be your place. But if you want a great budget option that comes with wonderful service, Chanter's Lodge will provide both. We had a group of 14 traveling together and Richard and the staff did all they could to be helpful and accommodating to us-a variety of rooms,... More

Great value option if you are staying in Livingstone. The guest house is run by the very helpful Richard and a capable team. Rooms are comfortable and the garden well looked after. Would recommend a room by the pool, which have a better view than the ones at the front.

Staying at Chanter's Lodge was excellent. The moment we arrived, I felt like the owner was a friend I hadn't seen in awhile. He came to visit with us daily, asked if there was anything that he could do and gave us great recommendations on local attractions. The recommendations of seeing Vic Falls by Ultralight and the safari we went... More
