Yes this is Africa. And yes this is Zambia so of course we do understand that some of the accomodation standards found elsewhere are not to be matched by accomodations in this part of the world. That said, we were still very disappointed by the level of comfort and cleanliness we experienced in Chanters Lodge Livingstone (also compared to other... More

Chanters Lodge was safe, private and as advertised. Stayed with a group of 5. Great breakfast and dinner options, and catered to allergy restrictions. Staff made arrangements for transfers to and from the airport. They also helped us to arrange a day trip to visit Chobe in Botswana. Highly recommended. Thank you.

Changers lodge is a wonderful, comfortable and homely place to stay. I had the pleasure of spending Christmas and New Years with my family there and it was well worth it. Richard and his staff are all pleasant, accommodating, friendly and helpful, it definitely adds to a very pleasant stay. Full English breakfast is offered in the morning and is... More

Its a nice lovely place, the swimming pool area is pretty cool. The food was one of the best I had in Livingstone. It is in a comfortable distance from the city centre and about 25 mins from Victoria falls. The staff is quite straightforward , found that these guys were trustworthy, simple and very easy to deal with. It... More

I've stayed a few times and highly recommend Chanters. In terms of Zambian accommodation and pricing, Chanters is one of the very few that top my list for Quality, cleanliness and pricing. Yes sometimes you pay for what you get but in this instance you actually get a lot more than what you are paying for.

Comfortable Room. Meals were good. Breakfast included in room rate. Friendly and helpful staff. Tour booking can be made by the staff. Most tour operators pick up from Chanters. Cozy bar and common area. Clean and well maintained.

We had a small groups of 14 university students and 2 faculty members. Chanters Lodge took great care of us, gathering our food orders several hours before the meal and then serving everyone at the appointed time. Rooms were clean and nicely outfitted for a very reasonable price. And the location was great--in town but just far enough away from... More

We, along with our friends, stayed 2 days. It's close to town, offers transfers to airport, and the staff are very helpful. We had all our activities arranged, no worries. Pool is a great place to rest and cool off. Rooms are big, with good air conditioning and bath tubs and showers! Breakfast was included too.

As a family of 6, we still did not fully occupy the bed space in our room!. Our children much enjoyed the swimming pool and we all again appreciated the tranquil surroundings of Chanters. Not everything was perfect on our arrival, but Richard (the owner) was very approachable and diligently sorted out our few niggles and will doubtless have resolved... More

I must say I am impressed at how pleasant my stay is going. Great quiet place to stay. I like the homely feel about the place. A lot of lodges try to hard to be high end and lose the simplicity some people look for. Also, very affordable in an otherwise expensive town. Will definitely be back.
