Our HQ is based at Kaazmein Lodge in Livingstone Town.

This traditional Lodge offers comfortable chalets for our volunteers with their own bathroom and offers twin-beds on a shared basis.

Breakfast is included in the Project fee and the Lodge has a vibrant and friendly on-site restaurant offering freshly made lunches and dinners. A wider range of cafes and restaurants are available a short walk away in Livingstone Town. To eat at Kaazmein Lodge we suggest volunteers budget around £12 a day for lunch and dinner.

Our Project Coordinator lives with the volunteers at the Lodge and manages the Book Bus project ensuring everyone is comfortable and well looked after.
