Niff the bar tender was really nice. The food took forever. We asked for t-bone medium done and it was so well done. The roof of the bar is leaking. Nonetheless we had a nice time and made sure we had fun. I've a feeling someone is sleeping on the job or busy somewhere else.

Packing up to get back to Lusaka after a fabulous three days stay in Chrismar Livingstone. Honestly I'm reluctant to leave. Every nagging visitor may find shortcomings in the majority of hotels and lodges but normally minor imperfections are easily overshadowed by endless string of undeniable merits. Perhaps the only small issue I noticed here was insufficient water pressure in...

I really liked the hotel with good designed room and bathroom with a pleasant resort area. There is one significant thing to improve : the pressure on the water tube was very low and during my shower even water flow stopped which lasted 10 mins. Also there was no one for massage or information after 6 pm and reception staff...

Couldn't believe the welcome and friendliness of the staff. This African oasis is indeed peaceful and tranquil and was the best place I could have stayed for location (near to the falls & Livingstone) as well as having all I needed for rest and restoration. There are two pools - one very large one with a sunken bar in it!...

Far from the urban melees, this place puts you an a condition of total rest especially for those exhausted from a lot of work. This is convenient for visiting the Victoria falls along Zambezi river and nearby animal parks. However, improvements are required especially the air conditioners coz the place is extremely hot. Also, Wi Fi need to be improved...

remember you are in Zambia, and 4 stars here is not the same as in ie Europe. from outside it does not look inviting, inside is another thing indeed. Have never stayed in a hotel like this, but I guess it is typical african style. Looks a bit tired and windows and doors are quirky indeed. Either you find it...

Peace surroundings, beautiful swimming pool and friendly and useful staff: Chrismar Hotel is perfect for families. The swimming pool is notably very large and beautiful. The sunken bar is an added value to the lovely swimming pool. The rooms are comfortable and the bathroom very comfortable. However, there is a weakness on food.

My husband needed to do some work in Livingstone for two days and then we were off on holiday. When we arrived at Chrismar we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff members in a lovely reception area and we were taken to our room through a lovely restaurant/pool/bar area but that was about where it ended. The rooms...

We stayed here for five days and were very happy with the hotel. We were lucky to be upgraded to one of the suites which was really nice.
