Zambia's original backpacker, Jollyboys Backpackers, is the quintessential backpackers lodge and has been catering to budget travellers since 1995. Our lodge is run by backpackers for backpackers. Your hosts, Kim, Sue and John, are there to answer all your questions and our staff are well versed in up-to-the-minute travel information and regulations throughout Southern Africa. The Jollyboys restaurant provides meals of exceptional value with a mixture of both traditional Zambian recipes and international favourites.
For those that are more enthusiastic, there is a self-catering kitchen and our Internet café is open late so guests can chat to loved ones at home, while The Jungle Drums Shop highlights some of the creative ingenuity of our Zambian people. Our rooms and showers are spotlessly clean, the beers are icy cold and the pool is ultra-refreshing.
So soak up some sunshine, laze in a hammock, munch on some mangos, 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."
Jollyboys Backpackers offers camping, dormitories, private rooms and en-suite rooms. Other facilities include a pool table, table tennis table, Wi-Fi Internet and email, book exchange, a braai area, a fully stocked bar with DStv for sport games, secure parking, 24-hour security, and gorgeous gardens full of mango, banana, avocado, papaya, guava and lemon trees. We also have a travel and activities booking office and bicycles available for hire.
Jollyboys Backpackers is happy to provide a free pick-up service from Livingstone Airport and a free daily drop-off at the mighty Victoria Falls. Our centrally located backpacker is also just steps away from various markets, grocery stores, restaurants, nightclubs and museums.
