Overview of Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel

Understated elegance, neutral tones and classic touches are the name of the game at the Stanley & Livingstone, Victoria Falls’ first boutique hotel. Named after the European explorers synonymous with the area, this intimate accommodation has elements they would recognise like glowing lanterns, wooden shutters and leather travelling trunks. And its location is one they would likely approve of too: amid the manicured gardens of the Victoria Falls Private Reserve, a 2 500-hectare Big 5 conservation area that borders Zambezi National Park. The reserve is earmarked as a designated Intensive Protection Zone for rhinos, a truly special area for these endangered gentle giants. Private game-drive vehicles are available for those who want to explore the reserve at their own pace with a dedicated guide. If you are more adventurous, you can also undertake a guided walking safari on the grounds.

In addition to staying in a beautiful locale overlooking a popular waterhole, the Stanley & Livingstone also has the benefit of complimentary shuttles to Victoria Falls International Airport and Victoria Falls Town. This bustling settlement is home to a range of adventure activities like white-water rafting, bungee jumping and bridge swinging. The main attraction is, of course, Mosi-oa-Tunya or ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ to give the Falls their traditional name. The views are most impressive from the Zimbabwean side, millions of litres of water gushing down a wide and deep precipice to form the biggest waterfall in the world by volume.

If the activities around the hotel are not enough, the Stanley & Livingstone also boasts plenty to do. Hit the gym or book a couple’s treatment in the spa. The swimming pool overlooks the waterhole and the concierge can arrange any last-minute extra excursions not arranged by your Africa Safari Expert before you travel.

The hotel prides itself on it dining options, with an a la carte menu that fuses Europe and Africa, and a choice of indoor and outdoor venues.

    This property is located in a quiet concession outside the hustle and bustle of Victoria Falls Town – if you’re looking for the best of both worlds, this is the hotel for you. Close enough to enjoy the activities on offer around the Falls but at the same time quiet and peaceful: the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature.
