We spent two days at Chanters. Richard offered to pick us up and also dropped us off at the airport - so convenient. Tea was delivered to our room when we arrived. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated with African fabrics. Our bathroom was large and modern. But the high point is the lovely tropical garden with winding pathways, thatched umbrellas over patio tables, unusual plants and a cool pool with plenty of lounge chairs. You can have your lunch or dinner served in the garden, too. At night it twinkles with light. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast included anything from the menu. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the poolside rooms with comfy chairs on the porch

We recently enjoyed 2 days at Chanters. The rooms were clean, staff friendly, wifi worked and the food was great. Very convenient to eat here if you don't want to go out in the evening. They also have a beautiful pool and garden area.

Four years ago, I had a very good experience at Chanters Lodge. This past Monday was even better. We had a two-room suite (with a grand bathroom) that was super clean and comfortable. The very reasonable price included a full-English breakfast. Mr. Chanter is always on the grounds and ensures that everything runs smoothly. He is also a fine gentleman who takes care of his guests very professionally. I will stay there the next time I'm in Livingstone.

We chose to stay at Chanters Lodge based on the good reviews we had read on TripAdvisor. Richard picked us from the airport and took us back when we were leaving to Kenya.

The Lodge is situated in a serene location making it an ideal place to stay after a long tiring day of sightseeing.

The staff are friendly and very helpful. They helped us in making taxi arrangements and recommended some of the places we should visit. They were more than willing to assist us with whatever we needed.

The rooms are spacious and clean. They also have Wi-Fi. It was nice being able to stay connected to the internet while at the lodge.

I was pleased to find that everything on their site is the true reflection of what is on ground. I strongly recommend the lodge to anyone visiting Livingstone. If you are looking for a place where you get personalized attention and good services, Chanters Lodge is the place.

I am looking forward to staying at Chanters Lodge again and this time much longer.

Thanks Richard.

Chanters Lodge was recommended to us by a friend in Australia. She and her family stayed there the year before. It was the brilliant advice. From the time we arrived to the time we left we were well taken care of and enjoyed the great facilities and lovely grounds.

The rooms are lovely and spacious, very clean with mosquito nets. The air conditioner worked well and there was a heater provided should the weather change. The pool area is well maintained with a calming sound of babbling water to help one relax.

Richard and his staff accommodated a part of our wedding party at the premises. Nothing was too much for them to help with.They provided free transport to the lodge from arrival points. They were very knowledgeable and gave great advice on things to do in and around Livingston and, they helped arrange travel plans. Our party varied in ages from 2 to 60+ and we all had a great stay.

We definitely recommend Chanters Lodge as a great place to stay.

Room Tip: We recommend a pool facing room.

This is Africa, so one expects a few quirks (this to the man who complained about wobbly taps!) but Chanters Lodge is a great place to stay and you feel very secure that if you ran into any problems Richard Chanter would soon sort them out for you. The rooms are simple and spacious.

Room Tip: Poolside for a veranda, main house for a bigger, better room.

We had a great time here, Richard and the staff were warm and friendly and gave us helpful tips on where to eat and what to do. Breakfast was delicious, rooms were clean and comfortable! The lodge is close to the falls and the airport and it was especially nice to read by the pool on a warm afternoon.
