“Usual high standard - thanks Richard for a great stay!”
Reviewed December 16, 2006

We met Richard Chanter when we lived in Zambia, soon after his appointment as General Manager of the Ridgeway more than 25 years ago, and saw him transform this faltering establishment into Lusaka's premier hotel and THE place for a fabulous night out. So we expected something special from his Lodge in Livingstone when we stayed there in August with our family. We weren't disappointed. The Lodge is quietly situated in a lovely garden setting with a super swimming pool. The accommodation was excellent, the food and service superb. It was great to see Richard again and it is evident he has put a great deal of the philosophy and practices he employed to such good effect at the Ridgeway into running his Lodge. For example, when we praised the food and service he introduced the individual members of staff responsible so we could compliment them in person. Nice thought!
Lots to see and do in Livingstone - we needed more time than we had planned but Richard managed to accommodate us for an extra night. NOT TO BE MISSED - Chanters pepper steak, mmm... the best we've ever tasted!

  • Liked — Food & service
  • Tips/Secrets — Take Richard Chanter's advice when booking your Zambesi boat trip. The boat we went on wasn't the plushest but it was more authentically African, great food and drink and excellent service on board. The crew knew where to go and we seemed to be there where things were happening before the others arrived.
