There is a list of activities available and the staff will arrange bookings.The pool was very clean, a lazy swim at the end of a busy...

Stayed there for 8 nights early 2015. Within easy reach of all the attractions at the Falls. The rooms are very neat, albeit on the small side. Nice enough kitchen that can be rented too for some self-catering. Enjoyable lapa area with a pool table. Had hours of fun playing poker and blackjack with matchsticks with the kids on the...

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your kind review. We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your week with us. We are also very pleased that you stressed how family friendly Tabonina is. Admittedly, due to previous bookings, the second room you stayed in (Room 8) is one of our two en suite and...

I booked for one night via hostelworld and paid about $35. Definitely think this is very good value for a comfortable room with air con, net, kettle, hot water. Often booking on a booking site you have no correspondence before arrival but I received a nice informative email prior to arrival and on arrival was given a map and information...

Thank you for posting your very kind review of Tabonina. We are delighted you enjoyed staying with us, albeit for one night only. Let me just put a few words in favor of Livingstone town, as opposed to Vic Falls on the other side of the border. While it is true that the latter is closer to the Victoria Falls,...

We needed somewhere to sleep at night, breakfasts and someone to help with advice on activities to do in livingstone. We got that and more at Tabonina. Great place and great prices. We even got air con! We wanted basic and cheap and we got something smarter and better for the same price. I can't fault it. Great people that...

We stayed in Tabonina for a few days and couldn't believe our luck in finding this gem - a clean, quiet, hospitable place where Laurent and his stuff went out of the way to help us in any way they could. So in summary: - service is superb, we have never been so taken care of. All Lauren's recommendations for...

This place is a wonderful home away from home. The staff is incredible. Lancey and Belinda are incredibly helpful and sweet. If you have a bad back the beds are not the greatest and could be updated. But the environment is relaxing, especially the pool. Well worth the price.

I would like to say thank you to the owner of the guesthouse! We spent beautiful time! Service was excellent, staff friendly, the owner showed much concern to satisfy guests and at the same time he didn't look intruding. Good room and clean pool. The only advice, if I can, is to have something like a bar at the guesthouse,...
