Zambia's original backpacker! Jollyboys is the quintessential backpackers lodge and has been catering to budget travellers since 1995.

Your hosts, Kim, Sue and John, are there to answer all your questions and our staff are well versed in up-to-the-minute travel information and regulations throughout Southern Africa. The Jollyboys restaurant provides meals of exceptional value with a mixture of both traditional Zambian recipes and international favourites. For those that are more enthusiastic, there is a self-catering kitchen and our internet café is open late so guests can chat to loved ones at home. The Jungle Drums Shop highlights some of the creative ingenuity of our Zambian people. Our rooms and showers are spotlessly clean, the beers are icy cold and the pool is ultra refreshing!

There is so much to do in Livingstone from rafting to elephant back safaris and of course visiting the world famous Victoria Falls! In the words of our guests "Jollyboys is the ultimate place to be!"

What travellers think


Very friendly staff. The bathrooms get cleaned several times a day, the cleanest place I've seen! The restaurant has daily 2 very tasty meals, and at a very affordable price. Lots of place to rest. Had a great time!!! Stephan
