Property Details

The Royal Livingstone, an elegant luxury boutique hotel, is a gem along the lush and beautiful banks of the Zambezi River in Zambia. A whisper away from the powerful Victoria Falls, the Royal Livingstone overlooks the smooth waters of the Zambezi, just before it plunges over the legendary waterfall creating a permanent display of power and energy. As one relaxes on the sundeck overlooking the forests of Mosioa-Tunya National Park and the waters of the Zambezi, rainbows fill the air creating a fantastic show of light and color. Named in honor of explorer David Livingstone, The Royal Livingstone has been categorized as one of the “Leading Hotels of the World”, a recognition well earned due to its exceptional level of service, fine dining, comfort, and hospitality.

Renowned for its colonial-inspired décor, The Royal Livingstone represents the epitome of Zambian warmth and Victorian elegance along the shores of the Zambezi. Each room at The Royal Livingstone is designed to capture the essence of an opulent bygone era. The luxurious bedrooms are located in two story clusters, each offering 10 en-suite bedrooms with private balconies or terraces affording superb views of the Zambezi River. The exclusive Presidential Suite, in turn, has played host to royalty, heads of state, and celebrities from around the world.

The elegance of The Royal Livingstone is also manifested in its many dining options. From traditional Afternoon Tea and eclectic dinners in the dining room, to romantic meals in the Royal Livingstone Express train or under the candlelit Monkey Tree canopy, guests are treated to the best culinary treasures Zambia has to offer. Due to The Royal Livingstone’s unique location, a tour of Victoria Falls is an absolute must during any stay. Other opportunities for adventure exist as well, including river cruises, outdoor activities and a trek on the Livingstone Express. This traditional steam train ferries guests through the Mosioa-Tunya National Park – an unforgettable game viewing experience.
