As soon as Richard Chanter and staff arrived at the airport to pick me up, I knew that I had chosen the right place. Room was basic, but clean and comfortable. The grounds are nicely maintained. Staff is friendly and helpful, even allowing me to use their personal laptop when I could not connect my own laptop to the free wi-fi. The guesthouse is within a short walk of town (and the excellent Livingstone Museum) and a $10 taxi ride to the Falls. I was a bit worried about getting proper vegetarian food, but I had an excellent and most satisfying meal (Junior's Bemba Brown Beans Curry). Richard has a long and colourful history in hotel management in Africa, and it shows in all of the small touches and attention to detail. Had I been in town for more than 24 hours, I would have loved to chat more with Richard about what I am sure are his fascinating experiences. Overall, a most comfortable and pleasant stay, and definitely recommended.
