The Royal Livingstone Hotel


The Royal Livingstone Hotel, stretching along the banks of the Zambezi River, consists of a series of 17 colonial-style buildings with deep verandas, set amidst indigenous trees and plants. The main hotel is a sequence of thatch-roofed buildings and incorporates the lounge, restaurant and bar. The swimming pool visually links the river with the terraces of the hotel, with a sweeping timber deck in the swirling waters of the Zambezi.


Our Thoughts

The best hotel on the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls, with the entrance, (which is free for all guests), to the Falls a short stroll away through the gardens. Every room has a terrace or verandah and the sunset deck which sits over the Zambezi River is the spot to be for sundowners. Those who have not pre-booked their activities at the Falls can do so easily at the hotel’s adventure centre.

  • Swimming Pool
  • Airport Shuttle Service
  • Gym
  • Spa
  • Conference

At The Royal Livingstone you can enjoy leisurely breakfasts or alfresco lunches on the verandah overlooking the hotel lawns and the mighty Zambezi River. Traditional High Tea is served daily in the lounge. Enjoy lunch on the sun deck that stretches over the Zambezi River near the edge of the Victoria Falls, close enough to almost feel the spray. Dinners on the other hand are served in the elegant hotel dining room or you can choose to have a romantic, private meal on your balcony. 

The Royal Livingstone consists of 173 rooms set in colonial-style villas under the shade of acacia trees on the banks of the Zambezi, offering views of the river, surrounding forest and manicured gardens from their private terraces. All guestrooms are luxuriously furnished in a tasteful colonial style and have mini bars, satellite TVs, air conditioning and en suite bathrooms with a large shower and Victorian bathtub. Your personal butler will ensure you have everything that you need.
