Royal Livingstone Hotel

Royal Livingstone Hotel

On the banks of a river that flows through the soul of Africa, the Royal Livingstone Hotel blends luxurious modern touches with colonial splendor. Named after the first European to witness the magnificence of what David Livingstone eventually named Victoria Falls, the Royal Livingstone is a hotel that tells the story of the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls, Zambia, and much more in one breathtaking destination.

Numerous en-suite guestrooms provide excellent accommodations, from luxury twin and king rooms to handicapped accessible rooms and high-end suites. Recently redesigned and updated by interior designer Paul Duesing, the rooms meld Victorian elegance with Africa’s tribal warmth. Each pristine sanctuary features crisp white linens, large comfortable beds, luxurious Victorian-style bath, and private terrace overlooking the Zambezi River.

The exclusive Presidential Suite boasts exceptionally high-end style with king-sized bed, Victorian tub, twin vanities, walk-in-shower, spacious dining area, private veranda, dressing area, and separate lounge.

Take high tea or sip drinks at the Lounge and Travellers’ Bar surrounded by portraits of the famed David Livingstone as well as treasures of Africa’s age of exploration. Sundowners on the expansive decks overlooking the Zambezi and Victoria Falls are a traditional way to enjoy a sunset. Both indoor and outdoor tables offer spots to savor a delicious meal while enjoying the beauty of the natural wonders around you.

The Royal Livingstone’s private resort entrance allows unlimited free access to the falls at most any time of day. One recent satisfied guest reported that “we went down one day before dawn, watched the sunrise over the mist, and had this wonder of the natural world to ourselves. That sort of experience lives with you forever.”

Named by local peoples Mosi-Oa-Tunya (“the smoke that thunders”), Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall on earth and hosts over a quarter of a million tourists each year. Commissioned in 1900, the Victoria Falls Bridge provides a spectacular perspective. Any activity imaginable is offered at the falls, from swimming to the very lip of the falls from above to whitewater rafting in the gorges below.

Zambia’s Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park has the region’s best game-viewing opportunities, with bushbuck, vervet monkey, hippo, crocodile, zebra, giraffe, warthog, and antelope commonly sighted.
