Our group of eight absolutely loved our stay at Chanters. The staff were warm and friendly and Richard Chanter was amazingly helpful and kind. After a long journey in which our bus broke down, he was extremely helpful and offered to send a vehicle to us. As it happens we didn't need him to but he was at the bus... More

We stayed at chanters with my family last year in June, it was awesome. The workers are friendly, the owner Richard Chanter makes you feel at home and has a personal conversation with his guest. So rare you find such hospitality with lodge owners.

Everything about Chanters Lodge is wonderful. The rooms are dated but clean and provide all that you might need. The outside grounds and the pool were so nice and relaxing. Breakfast was excellent, drinks at the bar, and the restaurant for dinner was very good. But above all the Customer Service was fantastic. From the moment Richard picks you up... More

Richard, owner of Chanters Lodge, met us at the airport and from that moment on, went out of his way to make our stay in Livingstone comfortable and interesting! He gave us several suggestions for activities (like the sunset cruise) and facilitated our independent exploration of Livingstone and Victoria Falls. The pool was perfect, our room comfortable and clean, and... More

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.
