Jollyboys Backpackers & Camp

Livingstone is not only host to the Victoria Falls (a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World) but also an array of amazing things to do. A MUST stop on any backpacking trip through Southern Africa!

By volunteering at Jollyboys Backpackers, you become an integral part of the team and assist with helping all of the staff to work to their full potential. We especially love it when volunteers are enthusiastic about training and bettering the skills of our Zambian employees.

I had such an amazing time staying at Jollyboys! I felt very welcome by every staff team member and in the lodge as a whole. I worked at the reception and bar and they were always flexible and understanding with my shift hours. Plus, Livingstone is a nice town and the Falls are such an incredible place to be close to. I would for sure recommend volunteering at Jollyboys! If you want to know more, feel free to send me a message!

So today is my last day on Jollyboys and I can't believe it is. It was so much fun working and living here. The crew is amazing as well as the guests that come by. We were dancing a lot, talking, learning, sharing and I will never forget that indeed. Lot's of love guys. One day I'll comeback!!

Absolutely the best travel experience I’ve had in ~6 months of travel in 10+ countries. The staff is incredibly friendly and quickly became like family, making me traditional Zambian food, showing me around town to their favorite spots, and always looking out for me and paling around. I completely sobbed when I had to leave. Work is incredibly flexible, the owners are hilarious, and the job is fantastic for meeting others at the hostel. Can’t say enough good things about this place, if I could give it 6 Stars, I would!!

La experiencia en Jollyboys y en general en Zambia fue excelente, debo dar gracias al staff por la buena energia siempre y la oportunidad de conocer como local Livingstone, les deseo lo mejor y seguimos en contacto.
Puntos negativos.
El host me exigio la visa de busines, resulto ser un tramite caro y complicado que me costo 50 dolares mas los 50 que ya habia pagado por la visa regular.
La habitacion fue compartida por otras 7 personas (turistas) de manera que al estar en distinta pagina no tuve descanso en los 20 dias de trabajo.
