The hostel was opened in the mid-nineties, and it was the first of its kind in Livingstone. The owners are English and Canadian expats who settled in Zambia more than 25 years ago giving them a good handle on tourism in the area and their standards follow international guidelines making it a cut above the rest when it comes to offering good quality service.
The Jollyboys team are part of many responsible tourism initiatives in and around Livingstone. They are very involved with local community projects and commission local artists and tradesmen as much as they possibly can. You can see the funky Zambian influence in all the bright and colourful local chitenge fabric and stunning wrought iron artwork used for most of the furnishings and fittings around the lodge. The rooms all have homemade soaps made from ladies in the village and the little shop is bursting with artwork and souvenirs made by local Zambians.
