I stayed at the Tabonina with a friend for 3 nights and it was probably my favourite accomodation on my entire trip through East and South Africa! We stayed in the chalet, which was lovely right from the carved door on your entrance through to the spacious room that gave us each our own little space. The chalet does not have air conditioning as there is space between the walls and thatched roof providing fresh, cool air! They have mesh all around the openings so bugs are not an issue. I loved listening to the sound of rain at night from our little chalet. The pool was right outside and a real treat after a day of activities, of which there are too many to choose from in Livingstone!
What really made the stay, however, was the wonderful hospitality from how host Laurent and all of the staff. We were met at the airport and before we new it, all of our activities were arranged and every need was met. I appreciated the friendly atmosphere of the guest house, but also appreciated the private and laid back feel of the place. I stated more than once that I would happily live in the chalet!
A light breakfast is included and I found it to be a perfect size/start to the day. You can upgrade your breakfast for a full cooked, english breakfast for a small cost but I did not try this. Looked good from what I saw but I can't eat that much in the morning! Thank you very much to our hosts! I hope to return one day and am recommending Tabonina to friends and family who may be in your neck of the woods!
