Ian & Sue Brooks
"The Castle" was originally built by an Irish immigrant in the early to mid 70s. After changing hands several times, we took it over in 1998. We decided in 2015 to refurbish it and create several self-catering apartments one of which is "The Tower" . We followed the castle theme and decorated and equipped the rooms to a high standard to be able to present a "home away from home" for those who prefer to 'do their own thing' in a homely environment.
My wife and I are 'outdoors' kind of people. We love wildlife, fond of our trees and love Zambia. My wife Sue is very active in the local SPCA and is an avid birder. I am more into crocodiles and snakes and spend most of my time managing our reptile park nearby. I am also a keen off-road biker and spend my free time exploring the African bush around Livingstone.
Livingstone is home to one of the seven natural wonders of the world. That being The Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River. Apart from having a great historical past, Livingstone can also boast of having a huge selection of activities. Our favourites are Lunch with the elephants; Rafting under the Falls; visiting the devils pool on Livingstone Island and of course the Livingstone Reptile Park.
