This is the place to stay while in Livingstone, Zambia. It is good value for the price. It is very close to the downtown area, yet not right in the heart of the central business district. Lynn looked after us from the moment we arrived and she has a heart of gold. She took us under her wing and made... More

Upon entering the gate at the ZigZag hotel you find yourself surrounded by beautiful nature not accustomed to the city. The staff learns your name and calls you by it. The choices of travel excursions are plentiful and Lynne is there to help and inform you every step of the way. I've stayed at other establishments in town and prefer... More

Our group loved coming here on our break between teaching at two schools in Zambia. Comfortable beds and great food. The staff moved a warmer inside for us as we worked at night in the comfortable lobby. Breakfast was big. They set up a great safari for us that came and picked us up at the hotel. Highly recommend for... More

I wasn't sure what to expect on the visit as this was my first time travelling alone....... Lynn and her team made me feel so welcome, all were very friendly. The hotel itself isn't far from Victoria Falls and is an ideal place to base yourself for all the area has to offer. The chocolate brownie ice cream is something... More

Really neat and tidy simple place to spend a few evenings when you are around for work. The owner Lyn is a fantastic host and goes out of the way to provide a personal touch. Rooms are simple but comfortable. Worth a visit and well priced and well located.

Contrary to most peoples' experience at ZigZag, it was the lowlight of my wonderful trip to Zambia last month. Aesthetically, it's ok but inside the lodgings are very small and don't have plug sockets for the charging of phones, laptops etc. This was a massive hindrance. The bathroom is also quite limited in what it can facilitate you with. When... More

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your time at Zig Zag. We don't get many complaints about our food so I'll certainly investigate the items that you mentioned and hope that we can improve. All our rooms have sockets, we would have been happy to locate it for you if you had asked. You are right that I should not... More

This review is quite belated... my husband and I stayed at the Zigzag in September 2012 for one night after arriving in Livingstone (for some reason the 'When Did You Travel' tool wouldn't let me select that far back). But I still wanted to write a review to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Zigzag. We were... More

Just spent 4 nights at Zigzag. Tremendously welcoming and friendly owner and staff. Rooms are not big but have very comfortable beds, plenty of hot water for showers and with a little table and chairs outside each room in the shade to sit and relax. There are also plenty of tables and chairs throughout the grounds and the restaurant /... More
