Zig Zag is a special place, not the standard hotel or lodge you could find in Livingstone. It has this magic created its inhabitants for whom true feelings and sense of hospitality matter. If you come here and you were planning on spending one night, be ready to stay longer. You will quickly be taken care of, but you will...

A wonderful little place with air conditioning in rooms and a nice restaurant on premises. Small but clean rooms with mosquito netting. Swimming pool was nice as well as art fixtures around property. Professional UK lady quit the corporate world and bought this delightful place while she funds local children's education and rescues animals.

At first we were a bit apprehensive , interesting hotel. The staff & their fearless leader were very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was a trouble. Pool very refreshing, amenities adequate. Will be back again in another week!

We take a group to Livingstone every July and are never disappointed. I couldn't begin tell you all the things Lynne and her staff do for us each year. We lived in Zambia for many years and the atmosphere at Zig Zag is so relaxing and is Africa at its best. The food is great and the rooms are clean....

The Zig Zag is situated 10 mins from Vic Falls and a short walk up to town, so ideally located and great value for money. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, especially Lynne and Mercy who couldn't have done more for us - organising our various trips and sorting issues when they arose. Highly recommend the Zig Zag

Our room was okay. The towels were dusty, but apart from that it was clean. Most of the staff were really nice and helpful, but one waitress was outright rude to us. we had a tour booked and had to leave at 7:50 and confirmed, that it would be enough time to have breakfast at 7 (when they start serving)....

Arrived very late with a party of girls, very tired and in need of TLC. Lynne was such an angel - nothing too much bother and always there to advise / look after us. We went off to do a charity rafting challenge and when we got back we were all poorly - yet again Lynne and her tean were...

Booked in a group of 11 at Zig Zag. Lynne, Mercy and the team could not have made us more welcome, or been more helpful and flexible.

This was our 4th stay in Livingstone and wish we'd discovered the Zig Zag before! Great value for money and superb client care and service.

The rooms are beautifully decorated with mosquito nets and stylish Africa...

Stayed almost a week in the lodge and loved the rooms, set up /gardens and more importantly the whole team who made us all feel so welcome and at home!
