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, to name but a few.

As Zambia’s original backpackers, Jollyboys continues to win numerous awards and is still arguably one of the best backpackers in Africa. Jollyboys camp is ideal for families and groups, as well as the individual traveler seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of the nearby city center. Take a break and relax in our tropical gardens and gorgeous swimming pool whilst being just a kilometer 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 cozy 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 recycling and upcycling.

Rest assured that African power cuts won’t affect your hot water and electricity access; Jollyboys is 95% powered by the rays of the Zambian sun. Come and join us; let the Jollyboys Team welcome you with true, friendly, Zambian hospitality.
