We have been at the poolside many times. Every time we go there we noticed one thing: variety is going down. If you stay longer than 3 nights you will notice the menu selection on food and drinks is rather scarce. Don't get me wrong...More

I notice some of the reviews are for Livingstone hotel bar, which is a sister hotel with a view of the Zambesi river - this is not the same as Avani hotel bar, from which the river is not in sight - it is next...More

I loved this. Zambia is very hot and sitting by the pool is helpful. The bar staff are very friendly and we enjoyed the live band in the evenings.
