About Royal Livingstone Hotel

Situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, the Royal Livingstone Hotel is a luxury hotel that reminisces the grand estates of yesteryear.

Just a five-minute walk from Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and the majestic Victoria Falls, the Royal Livingstone Hotel rests on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River. Boasting a rich history of pioneering African travel, the Royal Livingstone Hotel, named after the intrepid explorer Dr David Livingstone, captures the grace, charm and elegance of the Victorian Era.

A large hotel, the Royal Livingstone Hotel offers 173 rooms, each boasting private balconies, most of which have stunning river views of the mighty Zambezi. Guests can enjoy lounging in the travellers’ bar or sipping a sundowner on the sun deck, all the while watching the river ebb and flow.

Guests staying at the Royal Livingstone Hotel are spoilt for choice when it comes to activities and experiences. As well as relaxing spa treatments at the hotel, picnics on the banks of the Zambezi and boat cruises along the river, guests can also enjoy unforgettable guided tours of Victoria Falls, adrenaline-spiking swims in Devil’s Pool and much, much more.

Why We Love Royal Livingstone Hotel

  • Arrival at the hotel is via a water taxi ride across the Zambezi. This incredible water safari, complete with wildlife sightings and birding opportunities, kicks the vacation off on just the right note!
  • The views of Victoria Falls and Zambezi River from various points within the hotel and rooms are absolutely breathtaking.
  • One of the most romantic experiences at the hotel is an intimate dinner for two under the shade of the monkey tree. Vervet monkeys may decide to make an appearance too!
