Royal Livingstone Hotel

The Royal Livingstone, named after the intrepid explorer Dr David Livingstone, is a sophisticated five-star hotel on the edge of the Eastern Cataract of the Victoria Falls. Set inside the 46-hectare Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Wildlife Park, the resort is within walking distance of the spectacular Victoria Falls - recognized as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The hotel consists of a series of colonial-style buildings stretched luxuriously along the banks of the Zambezi River. The main hotel is a sequence of thatch-roofed buildings, and incorporates the lounge, restaurant and bar. The resort's deep, shaded verandah offers an uninterrupted view of the Zambezi River while a swimming pool visually links the waters of the river with the terraces of the hotel, with a sweeping timber deck planted in the swirling water of the Zambezi. The rooms are en-suite and air-conditioned, with private balconies and terraces. Interior furnishings accentuate the influences of Africa and allowing natural light to flood the bathrooms and oversized showers.
