When you hear the name, you might think that the place is in the border town of Zambia, but Livingstone Lodge is actually in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. It is located in a very quiet area of town, and that is how they like to keep it. The place is meant to be restful and peaceful, and for that reason, they do not allow loud music and they do not take bookings for functions. There is an area in the garden that has been designated for quiet time.

Livingstone Lodge was refurbished and opened in December of 2013. It is very clean and although it does not have luxury amenities, guests feel quite comfortable for the amount of money that they pay at the lodge. It is located about 4.5km from the Victoria Falls. Transport to and from town has to be by local taxi at the moment. However, in the near future there will be shuttles to transport guests to town.

The rooms are fairly simple and all are en-suite – five are single rooms; three are standard double rooms; four are deluxe double rooms; two of the family rooms sleep 3 people (one single bed and 1extra long king size bed); the third family room sleeps up to 5 people (one double bed and 3 single beds). All rooms are equipped with electric fans. The family rooms and the deluxe double rooms also have flat screen TV. There are shelves in the rooms for storage as well.

On the other side of the enclosure is the garden where the self catering kitchen is located. This is used for lunch and dinner as well as for unlimited tea and coffee. Livingstone Lodge is a B & B which means that breakfast comes complimentary (at flexible times depending with the guests). Also on the house are soft drinks for the guests. There is a swimming pool in the garden area, and poolside seating as well. As smoking is not permitted in the rooms, the garden is where guests may have a cigarette break.

The lodge has free wireless internet for guests. There is an area designated to be an internet lounge and will be available later in the year. Guests are welcome to use credit cards or cash to pay for their stay.

The manager of Livingstone Lodge, Piet, describes it as “the friendliest lodge in town. We not only offer accommodation, but we like to help our guests as much as possible”. He also describes it as “your home from home”.

The Lodge has implemented eco-friendly systems such as solar geysers for all the rooms, and recycling the bath and laundry water to water their plants.

Our Opinion

Livingstone Lodge is a privately owned B&B located about 4kms from town in the residential suburbs of Victoria Falls. Like most of the small lodges they do not offer shuttles into town but taxis can easily be arranged. Aimed at the budget traveller this is an ideal place for those not wanting anything fancy and are on a low budget. It's clean and comfortable and we highly recommend it for this price range.

Good Afternoon Boo,
Just wanted to let you know that we are now back in Swaziland and had an incredibly fun time enjoying Victoria Falls! All the activities lived up to the hype and I would like to thank you for all your help in organising a busy but full holiday for us! Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Also wondering where you prefer to have your reviews written?
Thanks again!
All the best

Memory I will not forget

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
