Despite the odd name, this place is a real winner for the backpacking crowd, and really anyone else. They have a variety of digs, but we chose the dorm-room style accomidations. Livingstone is sort of a dusty dump, but this nice place whisks you away to another world. The friendly staff can arrange trips to the falls and rafting and other activities. The crowd of people coming and going are diverse and interesting. There is a pool and they had kayaks there to practice with. This place is a must for the backpacker type who wants to meet others and have a good time. There is a lot of room to read and relax on the property and different types of places to sleep. All kept up with style and thoughtfullness.
