The highlight at Cypress Executive Lodge are the spacious modern rooms full of character with a king size bed. Since it is placed a bit further from the center and the closest supermarket is a few kilometers/miles away, it does help if you’re traveling with your own car - the lodge does provide with onsite free parking. The staff is helpful, answering to all requests.

The hosts are involved in many projects with volunteers in Livingstone and villages close by. The accommodation provided is basic (you will have your own bedroom and access to the living room, kitchen and yard). The best thing about this option, though, is that you will get closer to Zambian culture. The hosts can also provide guests with local home-cooked food and they will introduce travelers to the projects they are working on. This experience is best for people who don’t mind being offline for a few days (there is no WiFi available), for the sake of learning more about the culture they are visiting.

The swimming pool and the yard make Gloria’s Bed and Breakfast a very relaxing place. Who wouldn’t appreciate having the option to go for a swim on a hot, dry afternoon? Located close to the center, everything is within walking distance. Moreover, they provide their guests free airport shuttle. The rooms are simple, yet clean and the beds are very comfortable. It is especially good for couples or families.
Get closer to nature while visiting one of the seven natural wonders
Passing Livingstone is a must. Not only can you see one of the seven natural wonders of the world, but you can also experience the life in a small rather modern town in Zambia. Livingstone is probably at the core of tourism in Zambia, which gives you the opportunity to interact with people coming from all over the world, with all sorts of backgrounds. There are also many volunteering projects happening in and around Livingstone, so in case you end up staying longer, get involved. And if you can’t get enough of Victoria Waterfalls, cross the bridge to Zimbabwe for another perspective.
