That said this is how they are advertised. There are great areas to relax and hang out that are not in the rooms. The restaurant has an open feel... More

The staff were very helpful. First night I had mosquitoes in my room (window didn't close properly), so Mercy arranged for the room to be sprayed before bed. Unfortunately, a mosquito infiltrated the mosquito met somehow and bit me on the eye! Ruben and the other staff are also very friendly. I had a bad case of gastro (long), and... More

We had a great time in ZigZag and extended our stay two times. All facilities were clean an working, the room was nice, the staff was friendly and helpful and the food was good and cheap. The water is tasty and drinkable. There is a nice garden containing a lot of places to relax, e.g. a big hammock and lounge.... More

Lynn and Mercy and their team were great hosts. We stayed with them for a week and we felt right at home. They are warm, friendly and great at giving out tips on what to do around Livingstone. In terms of the facilities, it is very good value for money, and you get what you pay for. The food was... More

Fantastic place in Livingstone - located far enough away from the center(s) of town that you aren't hassled by touts, but close enough to walk, if necessary. Staff are excellent (and very honest - I didn't double-check a bill and they caught the overage the next day!) and and rooms are very comfortable. No trouble arranging activities and the food...

I went to Zambia with a service learning group. Instead of staying in well known hotels, we decided to stay in a local hotel. It was a really hotel. People were so nice and people always smiled back and asked how was our day

The staff and especially Lynn, the owner, went above and beyond to make sure my stay was comfortable. She gave us good advice on where to exchange money in town, good markets to visit, and places to steer clear of. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable 4-post beds with mosquito nets, and the shower had hot water with good... More
