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

We stayed in Zig Zag for a few days. It was a really relaxing experience. The rooms are clean and pleasant, the swimming pool was great and the cafe is a nice place to hang out. All within a short distance to the Falls and to the town centre. And to top it off the place has a cool vibe... More

Always willing to answer questions any time of the day. Wifi was pretty good connection throughout the property. Nice, free breakfast and tasty food in restaurant. Lovely gardens with several...

We spent 2 nights at Zigzag, and were not desappointed. A prearrange taxi picked us up at the airport. Shortly after we got our room, the manager had booked our activities for the next day. The staff is friendly and helpful, the owner is a wonderful person that came and chatted with us, explaining her philosophy and humanitarian approach. The... More
