2/10 Poor

We did not like the property at all. Within the property and next to the dining hall, they had an Animal shelter with lots of dogs and cats. There were at least 4/5 cats roaming in the dining hall when we re were having our food. We were a group of 4 and one of the members is allergic to cats. Have I known that they have an animal shelter within the proprty I would not have reserved the lodge. This was not mentioned at all. As we were not within walking distance of any eatery, our friend did not eat and was confined to her room. Next day when we went out she bought her food. We stayed for 2 nights. Our rooms were not cleaned or we did not get fresh towels every day.

Nice hotel in Livingstone
The hotel is relative cheap for Victoria Falls area, but very good. Only few bungalows in the big garden with pool. The room is small with basic furniture, but you can stay all time outside. The restaurant was remarkable. Not as comfort, but everything made by the cook was fresh and delicious. We have drunk all reserve of wine for two days, so is needed to inform the staff in advance :) Location is just on the main street and access is easy. In general, we had nice stay in the Zig Zag.

Nice, quiet location
We enjoyed out stay at Zigzag. Good location to do activities from. Basic, clean room with ac. The staff were helpful with arranging our activities. The healthy breakfast option was great. They will prepare packed breakfast or prepare it early if you are leaving for activity before breakfast time.

Secure and very pleasant
Once we found it, it was a great place to stay. Simple clean and wonderfully helpful and pleasant staff and owner. BUT the address you advertise is wrong and the map hopelessly incorrect which I blame Expedia for. So Zig Zag super, Expedia poor. It is actually a very easy place to find and very conveniently located.

Affordable and Fairly Quiet
A 15-min walk from downtown (Museum), but affordable with bore hole water, great food, and helpful staff. Also nearby the largest mall area for banks and supplies and across the street from the best Indian in town. A bit louder on weekend nights (new bar down the street?).

Nice experience
Staff (Manager) is helpful as we almost missed the booking of Devil's pool, and breakfast was delicious,too. If you would like to buy something, you can reach a big supermarket with about 15min walking.
