This place is such a wonderful quaint place to stay. The food is wonderful, particularly the homemade muffins. The owner is an awesome person and she makes sure you feel welcome. She even helps support an education and nutrition center that you can volunteer at to read and spend time with the kids. This place is very quiet and off... More

I cannot say enough good things about my stay at the ZigZag! Mercy and the staff are wonderful; great advice on what to do and how to sequence things. The room was perfect, the property was beautiful and kept very tidy. The food was also great and the staff were friendly and very attentive. If you want a great experience... More

What a great little hideaway for a quick trip to Livingstone! Lynne and her staff were nothing but welcoming, helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly the entire time we were there! They booked (and cancelled when needed bc of the rain) all of our excursions with no problems (even last minute when we couldn't make up our mind!). The outdoor garden is... More

Lynne and her team made my husband and myself just so so welcome from the moment we arrived. They couldn't be more attentive or accommodating. We would certainly stay there again given the opportunity.

Located pretty close to town and for a good price, Zig Zag Lodge was very helpful in booking some excursions for me when I was not able to find tour groups in the area. Mercy is an excellent manager and was there whenever I needed her and was very responsive to my e-mails prior to my arrival there. The staff... More

Thanks very much for the feedback and I'm glad we could help you enjoy your time here. We have a new booster for the wifi signal so I hope that improves the connectivity in the rooms but we are also a bit at the mercy of the weather at this time of year. More

I have stayed in zig zag several times when i have come for work in livingstone. I like the place because they have a lovely outdoor area where you can relax, free internet, friendly and helpful staff and good coffees! I also liked that the owner had a social conciousness. She runs a charity and sells crafts from local artists... More

This is one of the few affordable B&Bs in Livingstone with extremely helpful staff. The USP of this place is Lynne and her very welcoming, always smiling staff. I was so confused with dates and trip to Livingstone; and Lynne was very helpful through the whole time. The location is great - it is very quite and serene, very clean... More

I stayed at Zigzag for 3 nights with my sister and we had a lovely time. Not just because this lodge is budget lodge and located close to the city centre as well as the Vic Falls and some good restaurants, but above all we just loved and appreciated all the staff!

Thanks very much for your feedback and especially the kind words about the staff. We really enjoyed looking after you. Sorry about the bugs - it is the worst year for bugs we've ever had and we're trying some new chemicals to tackle them better. More

Lynne and get staff are truly wonderful. We enjoyed chatting with Lynne & learning about the local community. She runs a charity which educates ands feeds local families, so you feel good about the money spent at her lodge (which is very reasonable anyway). She's very concerned with quality & it shows in everything. I highly recommend this place!

With a short time in Africa, Livingstone was one of the only places we didn't book before hand. Extremely friendly and welcoming staff, they dug around for their spare laptop once I told them mine was broken. Great common room / restaurant, really cool outside too with a playground for kids, large hammocks and a pool. Mosquito nets provided and... More
