Clean, comfortable rooms in the heart of a charming African suburb at reasonable prices. The real gem for us was the airport pick up and drop off and the valuable advice and the best activities for our limited time. The owner and staff were a delight and reflected the charm of Africa which made the trip so memorable. Bottom line... More

Highly recommended both for families and single travellers. Peaceful, friendly and charming. Good value for money.By far the best place in Livingstone in this category. You're away from the crowds yet within walking distance of the bustle of the city center. Everyone among the staff are very helpful, and you can tell that Richard who owns it is very experienced...

A friend of mine in Lusaka recommended Chanter Lodge, and he was right! The service-minded owner and his staff made my three day stay to a memorable event. After a stressing workshop in Lusaka, I enjoyed the relaxed pace at the lodge, and I am sorry for not knowing that there is a small pool in the nice and well... More

I highly recommend this location. It is a very good value. The owner, Mr Chanter, does everything he can to make sure your stay is comfortable. He provides excellent recommendations as far as activities to consider. When my luggage did not arrive on my plane with me, Mr. Chanter went out of way to make a special trip to the... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Chanters Lodge for 4 nights. We enjoyed the clean, large, air-conditioned room, but absolutely loved getting to know Richard and his friendly, attentive staff. We had tasty breakfasts, fast service, and Richard himself greeted us each day when we returned from our Victoria Falls and safari adventures. We did not have time to... More

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
