We enjoyed our stay at the guesthouse. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. They were helpful organizing tours or taxis and whatever you needed. I didn’t love the rooms and the location is slightly removed from restaurants etc. It is a nice place and is as advertised but just not quite five stars. Also, why does no one ever have change ?

Many thanks for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Tabonina Guesthouse. That’s right, we are not in the center of the center, while still very central in view of Livingstone configuration. In order to get to the restaurants, one can either walk (25-30mn) and get a taxi back (about $3), or order a taxi (which we can do) if one does not wish to walk. It would have been helpful to know why you did not like the rooms. But what do you mean by “one never has change”? We always give the correct change to our guests when they pay for their stay or the extras they may have ordered. I am not sure I understand your remark there.

I can't say enough about the Tabonina Guesthouse! From the moment we arrived, we felt like family. The staff is wonderful - so kind and attentive, the grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and you have access to everything. The property is simple and cozy. The breakfast was light and refreshing and the pool was wonderful!
