The Royal Livingstone Hotel
Boasting sweeping river and savannah views from every suite, The Royal Livingstone is set just a ten-minute stroll from the great Victoria Falls. Here you will find a plethora of outdoor activities, warm hospitality, fine dining, and a luxurious haven of relaxation. The Royal Livingstone embodies colonial elegance with natural calming tones, romantically draped four-poster beds, and accents of old-world charm. While there are plenty of opportunities to embark on guided safaris, giraffe and zebra roam the property for unique up-close encounters.
Adventurers can spend their days rafting the mighty rapids of Batoka Gorge, abseiling, swimming below the falls, or soaking in a view from the top in a microlight. Explore the waters on a boating safari, sunset cruise, or canoe. After a thrilling day of adventures, gazebos overlooking the river await to welcome you for a massage and spa therapies under the shade of monkey trees. Indulge in afternoon high tea, recline in a hammock with a cocktail, hit the gym, or laze around the pool. The Royal Livingstone offers meeting facilities and exclusive wedding packages with an array of indoor and outdoor settings to choose from. A host of restaurants around the hotel serve authentic African and European delights with starlit bush dinners, African boma dining celebrations, and private island picnics for special occasions. The Old Drift Restaurant presents a sophisticated dining experience in a lavish dining room or outdoor terrace while Kubu Restaurant and Bar serve up breath-taking views with stylish lunch or dinner. Further choices include the lively Travellers Bar, casual Royal Sundeck, and classy Royal Livingstone Lounge which all offer a range of snacks, light meals, signature cocktails, and drinks to round off a true taste adventure.
