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

Pros - The location is great. Close to town and close to the falls as well. Our room (triple occupancy) also had a shower which was more or less "outside". Loved it. Best part of the place in my view. Cons - The bedding leaves much to be desired. The sheets were off-white with patterned stains on them. The mosquito... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback and we're sorry for the areas where we didn't meet the right standards. Most of the bedding has now been replaced and there are new mosquito nets in every room. The triple room bathroom has also been refurbished. We are often at the mercy of the ISP for wifi connectivity... More

Great base to stay. Lynne, Mercy and all the staff couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was memorable. Beautiful gardens and, although the rooms aren't large, the showers were great and the air con really useful. Breakfast set us up for the day with home made muffins and fruit from the garden. Recommended!

Zigzag is a reasonable choice in Livingstone, with basic but ok rooms and a good breakfast. The staff is helpful and service-oriented (especially in the hotel – less so in the restaurant), and the setting is delightful with a garden, pool and a playground for the kids. The price is somewhat higher than you would expect to pay for this... More
