Booked the family room based on reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed! The room was clean, if a bit small (2 adults and 2 kids). But as we spent so much of time touring or playing outside, hanging out in the garden (great for kids to play and adults to relax), sitting in the cafe (free wi-fi),or chatting... More

Pro: Few minutes walk from downtown and museum. In the part of the city nearest to waterfall. Clean. Comfy beds and pilllows. Excellent restaurant. Lots of hoo water. Really friendly staff. Pick up at airport. Reasonably fast Wi-Fi Cons: Paperthin walls. Thin screen to toilet. Smallish rooms. All in all an easy choice at a good price. It is also... More

Stayed here whilst passing through Livingston. Family room is a bit small but can't be faulted. Meals are absolutely awesome and well worth the money being spent, in fact you probably won't find better food anywhere in Livingston and I'll alway make a point of stopping by when passing through even it it is just for a decent meal at...

I stayed at Zigzag with friends. The room was appropriately appointed and I had the authentic African stay experience for which I was looking. My stay was comfortable, restful, quiet and safe. Security guards were posted at the gate, I assume, overnight--they were there when we left for a game drive at 6:00AM. The garden area is beautifully landscaped and... More

Place was amazing. Literally dope. Smoothies were gold and lodge had best air conditioning in Livingstone...10/10 would stay again. Staff were very friendly. Beds are comfortable and had mosquito nets, which saved my life from malaria. Great place

Best hotel ever! Nice people, beautiful garden, nice pool and clean rooms. The food is the best part of the hotel! You have to try mango smoothie and other desserts there! Everything is perfect, and I miss it so much!

It is a very nice hotel, gives you a true Zambian experience and the money is actually going to locals so not only are you enjoying a nice peaceful hotel but you are also helping others. I had an amazing weekend there and would totally redo it all at zigzag! (Mac and cheese was the best!!!!)

I visited zig zag in March for a volunteering trip with my school. I think the location is pretty good, the amenities are nice (especially the pool) and the rooms are pretty good as well, very clean and with aircoinditioning. The food in the restaurant is amazing , especially the smoothies. Only bad thing is the wifi, it doesn't always... More

I have mixed feelings about this place--I stayed here for 5 nights so I feel I can leave a qualified review. First, the good: I loved the location--it is between town and the falls, so you are relatively close to both (I walked into town, about 15 minutes, and took a short taxi out to the falls). The staff is... More
