TravelPod Member ReviewsTabonina Guesthouse Livingstone
Even before arriving at Tabonina, I knew it would be a wonderful experience - I had been communicating with the owner, Laurent, for several weeks prior to arriving, and he was always happy to answer my numerous questions on local tours, transport, and visa issues for Zambia and surrounding countries. It's a simple guesthouse, but very cozy and comfortable, and the staff make you feel right at home - always smiling and happy to chat. We ended up in the family suite, which is a thatched dwelling that appears to be in the traditional local style, which remained surprisingly cool during the day and night, even though it didn't have any air conditioning. Would definitely stay here again.

a close encounter with one such Pumba trampling through the ...
... bizarre queuing system and tall customs officials hiding behind dark sunglasses. Under an ever gazing photo of President Bob, long forms were pushed at us for completion and officials gazed at us over the rims of their sunglasses. Eventually a more senior customs official emerged when it was apparent that we would have to pay more for our visas as we were British. Despite the 30C plus temperatures, he wore a huge grey full length woollen trench ...
... which was a lion walk/training for me. Basically we walk through the bush with 2 13 month old lions sometimes with clients who can pet and take pictures with the lions and sometimes just the volunteers and lion handlers. At 12 we have lunch and then are taken back to lodging where we can hang out til 245. During this time we went into town to see some of the ...
... which has 3 wild dogs at the moment. They live like foxes and hunt like wolves. It’s a quick stop followed by a long drive to Victoria Falls. We stop for lunch and make our way to Botswana. I’m always amused at borders with gates and police but no fences between countries. Animals roam freely in a huge area the size of France. The border formalities go quicky and Kasane, the border town is a short distance away. We’re at the crossroads of 4 countries, ...
