Zambia's original backpacker!

Camping, dorms, private rooms and even air conditioned ensuite rooms!

We are located in the centre of Livingstone town, right behind the Livingstone Museum. It is super close to walk to restaurants, grocery stores and bus stations and we provide a FREE shuttle every morning at 10am to the Victoria Falls. The backpackers has a travel centre, restaurant, self catering kitchen, WiFi (and computer access), swimming pool, pool table, table tennis and an amazing book swap!

Livingstone town has so much to offer from the best white water rafting on Earth to traditional craft making and cultural dancing. Drop us an email as we'd be happy to help with your itinerary!

Sorry, no children under 12 years old.

Please note that credit cards are accepted for the deposit but the remainder of the accommodation bill is to be settled in cash (either Zambian Kwacha or foreign currency)
Prices are per person per night.
