Wow! we had a blast. We did a Safari & Victoria Falls. Zig Zag was a great location and a great accommodations. Budget friendly too. Lynne is an awesome host. She has a restaurant on the premise and there are several restaurants within walking distance. We liked Zest. Will go back.
Great location for visiting the Victoria Falls! Very welcoming, plenty of parking space. Locked compound which added a feeling of safety. Accommodation adequate, unfortunately the coffee that was made for us tasted like ground up soil mixed with hot water. Aside from that we would happily visit again but bring our own Nescafé!
Our experience at Zig Zag Lodge was extremely pleasant. The staff are friendly and helpful, they were able to arrange good transport for us throughout the trip. The rooms and bathrooms are very small but clean and comfortable. It’s a good place to stay if the falls are your main reason for visiting as it is not far al all.
I felt right at home staying at Zig Zag: the friendly staff and the garden setting create a welcoming atmosphere. I was travelling for a conference and I enjoyed being able to set myself up at an outside table under the shady trees to work with good wifi and a tall glass of their delicious homemade baobab juice! The place is very good value for money. The location is convenient for both Livingstone town and Victoria Falls.The food was fresh and tasty. A pleasure to have plenty fresh fruits and vegetables one doesn't always get when traveling The rooms are clean, simple, and comfortable with good aircon and mosquito nets. One of the best things about the place is that those who run it make a big conscious effort to have a positive impact in the community they operate in - they are involved in orphanage and childhood education projects, animal rescue efforts, marketing local crafts, supporting local produce endeavors (e.g. the baobab fruits and honey for the delicious juice), etc - and its clearly not as a marketing strategy. (Engage them in a conversation while you're there if you want to hear more.) Its a lovely place to stay and to support.…
We loved staying at Zig Zag and can highly recommend it. The guesthouse is located in easy walking distance from Livingstone town and about 7 mins by taxi (US$10) from the falls. The staff were very friendly and hospitable, and eager to help with organising tours, calling taxis and getting our laundry done. Our accommodation was a small motel style room, perfectly adequate for the little time we spent in it. We enjoyed hanging out in the lounge/bar/café area. The meals are not fancy but they are tasty and filling. The place has a great holiday atmosphere which perfectly complemented our visit to the area.
