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 whilst you are here; safaris, chilled and adrenaline rush activities.

Livingstone is the perfect place to stop before onward travels to neighboring Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe ... or to Malawi in the East and even Tanzania from Northern Zambia. A MUST stop on any backpacking trip through Southern Africa and beyond!

Zambians are genuinely super friendly people and you will be well taken care of by the staff! We hope that everyone will feel at home immediately; guests and volunteers. Zambia is also one of the safest countries in Africa and tied with the United Kingdom in 41st place on the Global Peace Index. The US Department of State ranks Zambia 1st place as the "Safest Countries to Visit in 2019". By volunteering at Jollyboys Backpackers, you become an integral part of the team. You will be expected to be self-motivated and have a good work ethic, despite being a volunteer. We are a professional operation and expect a high standard from our staff and volunteers: you get out, what you put in! Volunteers will be given various projects depending on what they LIKE to do ...! We are very flexible, there is always something fun or creative to do ... we like to keep our guests entertained in-house, so anyone with a flair for games, quizzes and general merriment is always welcome! We especially love it when volunteers are enthusiastic about training and bettering the skills of our Zambian employees; customer service, responsible tourism etc. We hope that everyone that stays with us feels free and easy to give us feedback on how we can improve the traveler and volunteer experience. We strive to be as professional as possible and provide the BEST traveler experience in Livingstone and Zambia as a whole. Join our AWESOME team and become part of the Jollyboys family!

My experience at Jollys was amazing. The hosts Kim, Merlyn and the rest of the team were truly welcoming and a continued support system during my stay. The hostel itself is well set up, a has a great social culture! It’s so easy to meet other travelers as well as locals who are more than happy to help you immerse into the Zambian culture. There are loads of opportunities to get involved with internal and external activities and the hosts are very open to any and all ideas you may have and always responsive to questions and feedback! It was an absolute pleasure to be volunteering with them!

Volunteering with Jollyboys feels like joining a new family. The hosts and staff are incredible, and the atmosphere is uplifting. Many guests extend their stay due to the hostel's magic and Livingstone's charm. Tasks are flexible, with various weekly activities. Interacting with diverse guests improves your English. I've seen wildlife without going on a safari. Jollyboys, known as the best hostel in Zambia, is undoubtedly the best in Africa. I hope my contributions made a difference. Thanks Kim, for this opportunity. I'll return with my family to visit. Zikomo, Tsalani bwino my friends!

I was lucky to get a last minute volunteer opportunity at Jollyboys and I truly loved it! Kim is a great manager and a very welcoming and helpful person. All staff members are super kind, as are Zambians in general. I didn’t really work in shifts, but Kim communicated her expectations very well. The Vic falls are one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen! If you get the chance, visit them also with the full moon.
