The Royal Livingstone in Zambia lies in the forested banks of the Zambezi River. A stone’s throw away from the magic Victoria Falls, the Royal Livingstone overlooks the smooth waters just before it plunges over the legendary waterfall creating a permanent water spray.


Enjoy the rays of the African sun around the inviting Victorian themed pool. As the day fades you can wander down to the sundeck to marvel at the grand sunset whilst sipping sundowners in the most romantic setting. The Daily Activity Centre can book any of the many activities available at Victoria Falls. Some of these include a micro light or helicopter flights over the Falls, white water rafting, elephant back safaris, river cruises and a variety of heart-stopping activities, such as leaping headlong off bridges and cliffs.


The Royal Livingstone comprises 173 spacious en-suite guestrooms, each with its own private veranda, stretched along the river bank. All rooms are luxuriously furnished, with crisp white linen and large comfortable beds to welcome and offer the perfect sanctuary to retire to. Bathrooms feature spacious showers and Victorian style baths, with wildlife pencil sketches adorning the cool ivory-washed walls, reflecting the textures and moods of the Zambezi River


The Royal Livingstone dining room is a fine à la carte restaurant with a delightful mixture of modern sophistication and old-world style, offering a unique top-class breakfast, ‘alfresco” lunches and a dinner with a dazzling array of dishes. The Lounge serves light lunches on the veranda overlooking the rolling lawns and the Zambezi River. The legendary High Tea is served daily in The Lounge.
