Property Description

Zambia's original backpackers and still one of the best in Africa! Relax in tropical gardens with a gorgeous swimming pool and be just steps from the museum, markets, banks, and grocery stores. The Victoria Falls are only 8kms away and we offer a free shuttle every morning at 10am!

Jollyboys has been catering to travelers since 1995; we love Zambia and our community and are happy to share our wealth of travel knowledge with our guests. Visit out our TRAVEL SHOP for great safari specials and you can book all of the exciting activities that Livingstone has to offer!

Grab a burger at the bar and then settle into a wide choice of private rooms or dorms and enjoy a good night's sleep under a cushy duvet. Delicious, healthy smoothies or a big cooked breakfast await you in the morning before starting a day of soaking up the sunshine or exploring the wonders of Livingstone.

Be a part of it... check out our community projects, worm farm, composting and our hot water and electricity powered by the rays of the beautiful Zambian sun. We take pride in our efforts to continuously strive to find new ways to be better in every way.

Latest Review

" Excellent location near Livingstone town. Easy for pickups drop offs and Taxi's. Very friendly helpful and polite staff like Isaiah. Front desk tour bookings soooo easy with Stephanie. Good cheap food. Wifi worked most of the time. Only works in common area. We had a private room with ensuite with a great fan and the hottest water in Africa. Highly recommend a stay here. "
