Harking back to the days of polished brass, fine crystal and silver service, the Royal Livingstone not only has an enviable view of the spray of Victoria Falls but also immaculate grounds and a gracious approach to hosting guests. From the imposing foyer and bar filled with fine cognacs to the zebras grazing peacefully on the lawns, this is a place to spoil yourself and your loved ones for a special occasion like an anniversary or honeymoon.
An easy 2-hour flight from Johannesburg in South Africa, the Royal Livingstone offers the plushest accommodation in Africa’s adventure capital. By day, head out white-water rafting on the Zambezi River, abseiling down Batoka Gorge, bungee jumping or walking with lions; by night, enjoy a Pimm’s on the waterside terrace before savouring perfectly-cooked Zambezi bream and sinking into your ultra-comfortable king-sized bed.
The Royal Livingstone also offers guests a spa and beauty salon as well as two gyms and a large swimming pool with river views. Whatever it is you feel like doing, the concierge and your private butler will be on hand – leave the ‘admin’ to them and make the most of your time at ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’, the Smoke that Thunders.
