Livingstone accommodation post-trip

Postby shierly83 » Thu Aug 09, 2012 1:23 am

I will be doing Dunes, Deltas and Falls (DCF) trip in October, and the trip finishes in Livingstone. I have an extra day there after the tour ends before flying back home.

The accom in Livingstone is at Zambezi Waterfront. Would you recommend spending the extra night there, or moving somewhere better or cheaper? I'm thinking of getting myself a proper room with ensuite bathroom, as after spending 20 days camping I think I would need it. Is the chalet in Waterfront any good (or good value, as it's a little expensive)?

I'm thinking about moving to another hotel (looking into Chanters Lodge at the moment) but then since I will only have 1 extra night, is it worth moving?

I moved hotels and stayed at Jollyboys in Livingstone. I liked it a lot better than the Zambezi Waterfront and we even upgraded to a chalet room. I didn't like the location and the restaurant that was there. But we were also in Livingstone for three extra nights. For one extra night I think I probably would have stayed put.

I stayed at Jollyboys too. It's one of the nicest hostels i've been to.

We are on the DCF trip terminating in Livingstone 11 October. We decided to stay the last 2 nights at Tabonina Guest House in town rather than more tenting at the waterfront park. Cost is Zmk500,000! Looks big but is about $100 total for 2 nights. Chanters looked good too but about twice the price.

Thanks for the responses. Tabonina looks good too! And it is cheaper.

I've decided to book at Chanters, as I'm only staying for one night so I don't mind paying $69. They also offer free pick up from the campsite and drop off at the airport the next day!
