What some of our guests have said about us…

“Karen & I had a fantastic time while staying at Livingstone Backpackers. Nothing was too much trouble for Dawn and her team. The food was very good and there was plenty of it at a very reasonable price. Great pool, climbing wall, hot tub and well stocked bar. Great cooking facilities as well as close by to local restaurants. Booked all out trips here as well and they were all value for money. Highly recommend white water rafting and the booze cruise – tho not at the same time!! Fantastic value, definitely stay here next time we are in Zambia – 2014 hopefully!!”

” It’s a very quite place with paying the same amount of money as in jollyboy’s bkpk, you can get a four person’s drom. as in jollyboy’s for a 16ppl/dorm. Very quite and clean place. Hot shower is hot. And the water is good. 7mins walk to the big supermarket Seal. Overall good exp.”

“My experience in Livingstone Backpackers was indeed a very good one. The place is a perfect base for venturing to the magnificent Vic Falls (there’s scheduled transportation arranged), shopping for African art in the city center and just relaxing in the evening. Or partying hard, whichever you prefer. :P As the name implies, the place is primarily for backpackers, adventurous travellers on a budget, so if you’re prepared to share your room, this is definitely your place. Livingstone Backpackers is nice, safe and affordable, so I warmly recommend it. :)”
