We have a time share with Anantara Resorts and the Royal Livingstone is part of that network. How lucky we were in landing here. This hotel exceeds high expectations in every area. The hotel manager, who is highly regarded by his staff runs a wonderfully staffed Hotel. Frankly thats what makes this Hotel a dont miss. Rooms are impeccable and...

We went here to have a drink and a dessert on the veranda overlooking the Zambezi River. It is a very serene setting occasionally interrupted by the arrival and departure of small watercraft taking guests for a ride over closer to Victoria Falls. A small price to pay for the experience.

Where to begin? The Royal Livingstone Victoria Falls Zambia Hotel by Anantara has some of the highest service standards we have experienced in a long time. Made the reservation online with the hotel, and later cancelled and re-reserved on a discounted rate. Had an issue with being charged upfront, but was all sorted out by the hotel. Hotel does not...

When we arrived and were shown to our (very comfortable) room I looked for the hotel information pack and for more details about the Victoria Falls and available tours etc. There was no information whatsoever. This seemed a strange omission but this is a hotel which misses out in many ways and is just not as good as it might...

We stayed at the Royal Livingstone for 4 wonderful days. The hotel is delightfully furnished and the rooms and en suites excellent. The staff were in a class of their own, beautiful smiling people. The breakfasts had something for everyone, and the staff were happy to accommodate if something extra was needed. The meals we had in the bar were...

This has got to be one of the best hotels to stay at Victoria Falls - Zambia side. A 10 minute walk to the falls and your entry fee included with hotel rate.

“Ask for a room with a view of the Zambezi. Buy direct from the hotel and you are likely to get an upgraded room.”
