The Royal Livingstone Hotel is named in honour of the explorer Dr. David Livingstone, and its interior design reflects the elegance of days gone bye using an African architectural style.
The Royal Livingstone Hotel stretches luxuriously along the banks of the Zambezi River close to the Victoria Falls. The main hotel is a sequence of thatch roofed buildings, most of them African in their influence, which incorporate the lounge, restaurant and bar. A classic swimming pool visually links the waters of the river with the terraces of the hotel, with a sweeping timber deck planted in the swirling waters of the Zambezi. The Sun Deck is a lovely area built directly over the Zambezi, and affording views of the Falls, is a favorite for light lunches and early evening drinks.
Guests staying at this iconic hotel will be able to enjoy use of the onsite spa, as well as massages beside the Zambezi River. With the Victoria Falls a mere five minute walk away, guests will be able to hear the spray and roar of water as they explore the beautiful grounds. One of the most unforgettable experiences is a helicopter or microlight flight over the Falls where guests will get panoramic views and a real view of just how mighty it is.
