We had a small groups of 14 university students and 2 faculty members. Chanters Lodge took great care of us, gathering our food orders several hours before the meal and then serving everyone at the appointed time. Rooms were clean and nicely outfitted for a very reasonable price. And the location was great--in town but just far enough away from...

We, along with our friends, stayed 2 days. It's close to town, offers transfers to airport, and the staff are very helpful. We had all our activities arranged, no worries. Pool is a great place to rest and cool off. Rooms are big, with good air conditioning and bath tubs and showers! Breakfast was included too.

As a family of 6, we still did not fully occupy the bed space in our room!. Our children much enjoyed the swimming pool and we all again appreciated the tranquil surroundings of Chanters. Not everything was perfect on our arrival, but Richard (the owner) was very approachable and diligently sorted out our few niggles and will doubtless have resolved...

I must say I am impressed at how pleasant my stay is going. Great quiet place to stay. I like the homely feel about the place. A lot of lodges try to hard to be high end and lose the simplicity some people look for. Also, very affordable in an otherwise expensive town. Will definitely be back.

I have been following Richard (owner) for years on Twitter, hoping that I could stay over in Livingstone. I have traveled through Livingstone quite a few times now and did go to meet him on my previous visit. I finally stayed over on April 1st, quite funny, I was no fool though. The lodge's restaurant is quite good. The food...

Fantastic Stay - Richard is a wonderful host who welcomed us on his radio show. The hotel's restaurant is great, with the most comprehensive menu in the area. The rooms were clean, air conditioned (very important), and comfortable,. Great value - breakfast, transportation to and from the airport is included. It's a nice walk into town - about 15 to...

Chanters is a comfortable very affordable place to stay. The rooms were neat and clean. The food was reasonable. Generally the staff were effecient and helpful, except for one person. I would recommend Chanters as a place to stay.

Great value accommodation. Richard recommended tour operators and helped us arrange to go to Chobe National Park which went very smoothly. The room was expansive, clean, and comfortable, right on the pool and garden. I would stay here again and recommend to others.

I spent 2 nights at Chanter's Lodge in February. Richard and the rest of the staff are all extremely friendly and helpful!
