The Royal Livingstone
Summoning up bygone days of travel, the Royal Livingstone is a stylish, genteel stay situated within earshot of the thunderous Victoria Falls. The hotel offers a fantastic luxury experience which, with zebras and giraffes roaming the grounds, means you can go on safari from the comfort of the wicker chairs on your veranda.
Why We Love It
You have to try the Royal Livingstone Express. Ensconced in deep leather seats on a restored steam locomotive, you’ll dine on a delicious wine-paired dinner while watching the hippos and impala out of the window, before traversing the falls on the Victoria Falls Bridge.
The view—and sound—of the falls from the hotel’s deck is an atmospheric place to sip sundowners.
On the banks of the Zambezi, within view of the rising spray from Victoria Falls, sits this stately luxury hotel. It’s best reached by a boat journey along the river that drops you off on the doorstep.
Victorian elegance and Grand Tour vibes dominate—although you’ll find the latest exercise bikes in the gym— while the giraffes, monkeys, and zebras roaming the grounds are delightful to watch from the comfort of your white cushioned poolside lounger.
WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
Its location makes everything feel out of the ordinary, from having a soothing massage on the banks of the river to dining on the terrace with the roar of the falls in the distance.
The colonial architecture and Victorian style—think wicker chairs on the veranda and portraits of explorers in the halls— generate a genteel ambiance in whichever of its room you hang your safari hat. The tiled floors are cool underfoot during the heat of the day, and from your bed you can look out at the zebras on the grounds, the view framed by billowing white curtains.
There are many experiences available to make the most of your stay in this unique corner of Africa. Take a private helicopter ride over this watery wonder of the world or even bungee jump off of the Victoria Falls Bridge to commune with the falling water. Afternoon teas and African feasts by firelight all add to this hotel’s classic allure.
