Jollyboys International Backpackers Lodge

-::- Guide No: ZA3902 -::- Coast to Coast - Page 304 -::- Alternative Route - Page 163 -::-


Zambia truly is 'the real Africa'! This diverse nation abounds in smiling, friendly people breathtaking scenery and genuinely wild National Parks. From the tranquil shores of Lake Tanganyika to the rushing waters of the Victoria Falls, Zambia is home to an amazing array of beautiful places and cultures. At we aim to bring you the most up-to-date and reliable information on budget travel through Zambia and Southern Africa.

So, grab your passport, slap on some sunglasses and come see why Zambian travel is possibly the best adventure you will ever have.

Zambia's original backpacker! Jollyboys is the quintessential backpackers lodge and has been catering to budget travellers since 1995. Our lodge is run by backpackers for backpackers.

Your hosts will be Kim and Sue (our Northern hemisphere gals) who are there to answer all your questions. Our staff epitomise the extent of Zambian hospitality and our service is second to none. 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!), dance till you drop, or build a model of the Victoria Falls with nshima - it's up to you, everyone can do their own thing, just enjoy! In the words of our guests "Jollyboys is the ultimate place to be!"

Things to do

LIVINGSTONE is, without a doubt, the adrenaline capital of Zambia. In fact, the Victoria Falls region is probably one of the biggest hot spots on the continent. Whether you want to throw yourself off a cliff or brave some of the best rapids on the planet, this is definitely the place to be! Big game, big water, big rush and big fun! Some people spend so much time enjoying themselves that they forget to see the Falls themselves! If you would like any further information about any of these activities or would like recommendations on safaris throughout Southern Africa, please send us an email.
