We are able to book all the many activities available in Livingstone for our Guests. Our restaurant is well established and we offer a full a la carte menu of local and international dishes. The lodge has many recommendations on TripAdvisor.
Chanters Lodge was opened in 1998 with just three rooms and was initially successful as a restaurant and bar operation – one of Livingstone’s first and still an excellent venue for dining out. As the city became popular with tourists in the early 2000’s so we started to expand the accommodation side of the operation, adding four rooms in 2004, a swimming pool in 2005, three additional rooms in 2006 and two more in 2009. In 2010 offices were built and the original three rooms were converted into a suite and one adjacent double room. Management of the lodge is by Richard Chanter, one of Zambia’s well known hotel keepers and formally general manager of one of Lusaka’s largest and most popular four star hotels. Prior to coming to Zambia Richard was involved in hospitality management in several other African countries.
