Quick Navigation

The Royal Livingstone Victoria Falls Hotel delivers class and convenience all in one tremendous property.  This English colonial lodge resort welcomes visitors with grace, class, and elegance from the moment you enter the lobby.

The Royal Livingstone is found inside Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and along the Zambezi River.  It is not uncommon for zebra, giraffe, or impala to serve as part of the welcoming team as you enter the hotel property off of the main road.  The grounds of the hotel are part of the national park and wildlife is free to roam about.

The Royal Livingstone is a luxurious African experience with manicured lawns, meandering wildlife, sounds of the roaring Zambezi River, and first-class attention.  The reception and dining team treat everyone like they are VIPs, and this attentive care is all capped off with personal butler service.

This classical Anantara property sits right along the Zambezi River with only a 5 to 10-minute walk along the river to your own personal backdoor entry to Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

At the end of the day after exploring Victoria Falls and the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, every guest should take advantage of the sun deck situated over the Zambezi River.  This is a great place to unwind, relax, reminisce on the day’s explorations, and watch one of the most beautiful sunsets take place right before your eyes.  You can do all of this while enjoying tasty snacks, light meals, and refreshing beverages.


Guests can take a short 5 to 10-minute walk and access Victoria Falls through a private access gate.  This access allows guests to come and go between the resort and the natural wonder of Victoria Falls.

Although located in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls, guests can take a day trip across the border into Victoria Falls National Park on the Zimbabwe side of the falls.

Guest Rooms

The Premier and Deluxe rooms offer guests either a balcony or veranda overlooking the Zambezi River and manicured lawns.  The Deluxe Corner rooms feature a sunroom for relaxing and taking in the view.  It is quite possible you will see zebra or impala grazing in the grass right outside your windows.

All rooms feature a discreet butler service, WiFi service, and a separate tub and shower.  Anticipated amenities like coffee and tea, television, air conditioning, telephone, and writing desk are all presented with typical Royal Livingstone flare.


Room service is available, however, there are various dining options that allow guests to take advantage of the spectacular setting and sounds of nature that the open-air dining affords visitors.

It is common for dining guests to see zebra and monkeys roaming across the manicured lawn.  One of the evening options is to enjoy snacks and beverages on the deck situated over the Zambezi River looking out toward the falls.  The setting sun, which occurs directly across the river, creates one of the most stunning picturesque African sunsets.

An African boma experience is available within a short walking distance located between the Royal Livingstone and the sister property, the Avanti hotel. 


The Royal Livingstone Victoria Falls is classical and charming with a colonial English Tudor décor with African flavor intertwined throughout.  Anticipated in-room amenities include satellite television, telephone, storage, safe, hairdryer, and a writing desk.  Wireless internet, laundry, services, banking facilities, and gift shops are also available.

The hotel provides guests with a gym to invest in their physical wellness, a hair salon to refresh for the journey back home, and massage services that rejuvenate the whole mind, body, and spirit.  The secluded massage tents sit near the bank of the Zambezi River allowing patrons to melt in the hands of the masseuse and drift away mentally to the sounds of the flowing river and accompanying nature sounds.  It is the epitome of tranquility.
