Just a little over K200, one even has full English breakfast was amazing. the workers were like a family. What a great reception I was given. May the original...

Had booked a family room that came with two double beds and a bunk-bed, AC, TV, bathroom with shower and bath. Room rate was excellent value especially considering it included a full English breakfast for all 4 of us.

All complete with mosquito nets, refrigerator, small TV (not Dstv). The room is very clean, non smoking, the bath, shower and toilet all as should be. Our hosts provided a very warm welcome,...

Beautiful. As I write I am sitting in a comfy armchair on the verandah by the pool listening to birdsong. The garden is well-tended with trees, shrubs and flowering plants with sun lounges under shady African Hut style gazebos. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable with adjoining bathrooms and working showers. Breakfast is good and can be taken inside or...

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...

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.

It is in a comfortable distance from the city centre and about 25 mins from Victoria falls.

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.
