1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2009

Livingstone is a wonderful town to spend time. Different places call it self Livingstone hotell and lodge, we were confused when booked the Livingstone Lodge to find it was not what we expected. On coming in det här hotellet we just wanted to leave, food was bad, noisy music and bugs every where we go.
Till Royal Livingstone Hotellet and Zambezi Hotellet was good option.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2008

From Canada: My wife and I have stayed at the Livingstone Safari Lodge and Campground on two separate occasions in 2007 and again in 2008. Whenever we travel, the most important features of our accommodations are good price, friendly service, and a chance to get to know the culture of the country we are visiting. At the Livingstone Safari Lodge, we found all three. Tjisse, the somewhat eccentric owner, made us feel as though he was our personal host. Josephine at the front desk, Peter at the bar, and Milton in the restauant, all made us feel like part of a family.

Zambia is described as the 'real' Africa, and the Livingstone Safari Lodge is 'real Africa accommodation', with lovely individual lodges with balconies and outdoor showers, a beautiful grounds, and an adventure each and every day. This lodge isn't five star but the interaction with the staff, the possibility of an elephant crossing the grounds, and good food, make it a place not to miss.

Thanks everyone - we look forward to seeing you again soon.

We had a rushed trip to Livingston to see as many sights as we could in 3 days. We found Chester and the staff very helpful and friendly and they managed to assist us to fill in our stay with a lot of sightseeing trips. Two of the boys also very proudly gave us a guided tour of their village and we enjoyed this experience immensly. The staff were also very friendly and Chester was very helpful and allowed us to use his internet to contact family.
The chalets were very comfortable and spacious.
We would recommend the Lodge for any tourists who are wanting a friendly, middle of the road accommodation.

We spent 5 nights in this nice accommodation, we were in this bungalow, real african style, in a area sourrounded by fields, with the african music in the distance at night time. There were also a nice bar, with friendly crowd and a nice barman.
All the staff were very corteous and efficient. The owner, a dutch man, was also polite to us. But It was a pity to notice how unpolite and disrespectful he was towards his employees (all zambian).
