“Good food in a comfortable setting”

The Mango Tree Cafe
Ranked #18 of 36 Restaurants in Livingstone
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 May 2017

The Mango Tree Cafe is on the grounds of ZigZag B&B. Drive up to the closed gate, and someone will be there to open it for you. During our three days in Livingstone, our Zambian friend took us to Mango Tree two times. It is a place where both locals and visitors eat. Our first visit included 4 adults. Our second visit included 5 adults and two children. On both occasions, the food was great and the service was very friendly. We were seated on the couches, where we looked over the menus and ordered our food. We then moved to a table when the food was ready. The nshima and chicken/beef was wonderful. Those in our party also enjoyed the chicken curry, the burgers, the mango smoothies, and a few other items. The restaurant also includes a small selection of souvenirs comparably priced to other places in Livingstone. While eating at the Mango Tree Cafe, children can play on the grounds of ZigZag B&B while waiting for the food to be ready.

We loved the food and the atmosphere! My kids all said this place gets "5 Stars". They enjoyed playing in the garden and cool playground while waiting for our meal. Met the owner, Lynn, who is a nice lady and is doing good work in Zambia. We'll be back next time we come to Livingstone.

We spent the better part of two days hanging out at the Mango Tree Cafe. The atmosphere is super relaxed among a well kept garden.

The staff aren't as attentive as they could be, but friendly all the same.

The Mango Tree is the restaurant at the Zig Zag Town lodge. Great is you are staying there, because the breakfasts are excellent, but many folks also came who were staying elsewhere. After trying the curry with a Mosi beer, don't forget to have some homemade sorbet - the watermelon and mango were super.
