We stayed in Tabonina for a few days and couldn't believe our luck in finding this gem - a clean, quiet, hospitable place where Laurent and his stuff went out of the way to help us in any way they could. So in summary: - service is superb, we have never been so taken care of. All Lauren's recommendations for food, activities and places were amazing - location is good. We loved staying on Zambia side - it felt a lot more like a real African town with its own live independent of tourists. You need


The staff at Tabonina were exceptional, so kind and helpful. The owner, Laurent, gave us great advice on activities and transportation. Our room was clean, well appointed and comfortable.

Furniture in room was rather basic and drawers failed to open smoothly. However, we were treated like friends staying over which made us feel so good rather than just paying guests. Laurent assisted us over and above any hotel owner would, he even allowed us to use his laptop to contact our daughter back in England. Brilliant hospitality.
