Property Information

Jollyboys has been catering to travelers since 1995; we love Zambia and our community and we are happy to share our wealth of travel knowledge with our guests. Visit out our travel shop for great safari and activity specials as well as travel advice for Livingstone, Zambia and beyond!  We go above and beyond to keep our guests happy; free daily shuttle to Victoria Falls, free pickup from Livingstone Airport and the Victoria Falls border, free weekly Livingstone town walk, to name but a few.

As Zambia's original backpackers lodge, Jollyboys continues to win numerous awards and is still arguably one of the best backpackers in Africa.  Take a break and relax in our tropical gardens and gorgeous swimming pool whilst being just steps from the museum, markets, banks, and stores. The Victoria Falls - World Heritage Site - are only 8 kilometers away.

After a day full of adventures and adrenaline; grab a homemade burger at the bar and swap stories and tips with your fellow travelers, whilst having an ice cold Mosi sundowner.  Settle into a wide choice of cosy private rooms or dorms and enjoy a good night's sleep under a cushy duvet. Delicious, healthy smoothies, homemade pancakes or a big cooked breakfast await you, before starting another day of exploring and enjoying Livingstone.

Be a part of our Responsible Tourism initiatives, check out our community projects, worm farms and composting food waste.  Plastic bag and plastic bottle collection bins.  Rest assured that African power cuts won't affect you hot water and electricity access; Jollyboys is powered by the rays of the beautiful and constant Zambian sun. Come and join us; let the Jollyboys Team welcome you with true, friendly, Zambian hospitality.
