    We stayed here for two nights whilst exploring Livingstone before going and staying over in Vic Falls. We visited in the low season so it was only us staying and two other people in a tent. As you can imagine it was quiet! The pool was nice and they cooked us a simple breakfast in the mornings. Walking distance to local restaurants and a short taxi ride to the Falls National Park.

    The staff was great and helpful besides one worker not being patient as the others. Once we ordered a taxi and they sent us a non-registered car, the driver was rude and didn't even know where to take us... it was like a trip from hell. Although it was very cold, the room had enough blankets to surpass this. The ambiance is very relaxed and the staff is friendly and helpful. Overall it was a good stay but they need to fix the internet service, it barely works.

    The Jollyboy Camp (which is different to the Jollyboys Backpackers) was pretty nice. It was no where near as busy as the backpackers and actually made for a pretty relaxing stay. The biggest issues were (i) the lack of wifi, which never worked (even most other places managed to have theirs working). Also, the kitchen was under-equipped, the stoves were temperamental and the pots and pans were totally rubbish. Other than that, thumbs up.

    The Campsite was pretty nice. The staff were very helpful and didn't tire of my endless questions. The bar/restaurant was nice, but I wish they would have had a wider drink selection and it would've been nice to get dinner there as well. I went to the Backpackers on night to get some dinner, and was blown away by how much nicer the facilities were. They sold dinner, had a great drink selection, and the pool was clean. The campsite facilities need to be upgraded to match their counterparts.

    Kitchen filthy with just a couple of decrepit rings and a microwave. Wifi didn't work. Also a long walk to town. Room clean but toilet door could only be closed by leaning a bucket against it. Staff helpful and friendly.
