we we're here for 5 nights, as a couple.
We got a lot of trouble to reach Livingstone, so we arrived at 4:30 AM.
we were very happy that even at that time there was someone to give our keys
and to show us around.
The first four nights we had a double room, and this one was very nice,
big beautiful shower, nice paintings...
The last night we changed room because we did a safari in between.
This room was not very good. The shower was old with an old curtain,
and the ventilator above our bed could fall down every second, and the
door between the bathroom and sleeping room couldnt be closed.
But that was only for one night.
The food was excellent (for us, students ofcourse),
and the service was very good. It was like the employees were becoming friends!
There was a primitive travel agency where we could book safaris, trips, cruises...
that was a very good thing about jollyboys! we booked all our little trips that way.
For every trip you get picked up at the jollyboys hotel, so that was very easy!
And at least, the bar closes at 23 pm so that was good for us, because after one day of game drives or rafting, youre very tired! I had a very good sleep for a backpackers!
