“Welcoming place”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Green Tree Lodge is a warm, welcoming place that is very reasonably priced and comfortable to stay. Andrew helped us set up everything for our stay (trip to Chobe, free transfers to/ from the airport, taxi to Vic Falls and around town). He really made the trip easy, and his personal attention to each of his guests and every aspect of the lodge is wonderful. On top of that, he's a chef and the food is first rate. The lodge is child friendly with plenty of outdoor space for kids to play, great children food options, and nicely located so it is easy to get to sites/locations around Livingstone quickly.

Stay here if you are in need of a low-key, relaxing place. The food is divine and Andrew and Victoria helped us to organize everything, so no need to stress. A down to earth place with down home cooking-that's my idea of vacation. The rates are so reasonable and great location. If you don't have a car (we didn't) Andrew and Victoria have plenty of cab drivers to use at affordable rates. Can't wait to go back!

We were very happy with our short (2 night) stay at the Green Tree Lodge. We first read about it on trip advisor and we were not disappointed! Andrew picked us up and dropped us off at the nearby airport. He and Victoria made us very welcome. The chalet was comfortable and the lodge quiet and restful. Great meals. It's about a 15 minute walk into Livingstone and a 20 minute taxi ($10) drive to get to the Victoria Falls. Overall, very good value for money.

Lovely warm atmosphere and welcoming hospitality from Andy and Victoria at Green Tree Lodge. And the food is probably the best in Livingstone - really!!!! Swimming pool, very centrally situated in Livingstone and close to the National Park....
Wifi is available so my husband could use his computer easily.... Will definitely use Green Tree Lodge as our base next time we are in Livingstone...

Andrew and Victoria couldn't have done more from the time they picked us up from the airport to taking us to the bus station for our ongoing journey five days later! Traveling with a teenager and a preschooler was always going to have its moments and Andrew and Victoria went out of their way to make us feel like nothing was too much trouble (thanks for the homemade chicken nuggets Andrew!). Excellent value for money. Chalets clean and comfortable. Pool and grounds well looked after. Food fabulous, we especially enjoyed the "specials" board. Andrew happy to book tours etc. and went the extra mile to help us with contacts in northern Zambia for the rest of our trip. We will be back!

To start: you can certainly find luxury, bazillion start lodges in the Livingstone area which will cost in the range of $1,000 per night; you can also find some excellent backpacker's/hostels. If you're looking for something which is a happy medium (with much better food...) this is it. The grounds are beautiful, the chalets are clean and comfortable, I like not sharing a wall with the next guest, the owner, Andrew, takes care of each guest and makes sure their activities are arranged (and he makes the best damned samosas.....) It's a pretty easy walk into town, I'd certainly go back.

We have been in South Africa, including Zambia for 6 weeks with a stay of 7 days here at the Green Tree. Cottages were clean, quite and the porch in front provided a great sitting area. The complete facility including pool and other common areas were clean and very useful. The lodge is run like a BnB, providing great service and value.

Andrew the host is very knowledgeable about tours and very attentive to his quests needs. He booked the tours and arranged transportation. There is no need to go outside the lodge other than gonin on tour. The food that Andrew prepared was excellent and of great value.
