Property Information:

Zambia's original backpackers and still one of the best in Africa! Just steps from the museum, markets, banks, grocery stores and all of the fun of Zambia! The Victoria Falls are only 8kms away and we do a free shuttle every morning at 10am!

Jollyboys has been catering for budget travelers since 1995 and is still owner run and operated. Try out our TRAVEL SHOP for great safari specials and all of the adrenaline that Livingstone has to offer! We will do all in our power to make your stay in Livingstone as amazing as possible!

Our rooms and showers are spotlessly clean, the beers are icy cold and the pool is ultra refreshing. So soak up some sunshine (there's lots of it!), laze in a hammock, munch on some mangoes (there's lots of those too!), and just enjoy!

Join us for a game of football at the local orphanage every Sunday @ 3pm!

We collect clothes, blankets, food and books for the local orphanage so if your backpack is getting heavy we'll help you out by donating it!

We have an amazing book-swap (we're all bookworms here!) so bring a book, swap a book - we just ask for a k2000 donation (that's only about 50 cents) for the orphanage - good deal!
