Had an amazing time at Vic Falls, timeless establishment, excellent service, perfect weather and the perfect season for the falls. My highlight was the swing jump at the bridge. What an experience.Cant wait to go back.

Had a fabulous stay at the hotel. Positives: Check-in is done at a lounge adjacent to the reception area. It was done quickly and efficiently. After a long journey, the complimentary molton brown hand massage, cool mini towel and refreshing cold drink were a very welcome touch. The staff are amazing - extremely attentive and polite. Nothing is too much...

I just loved the Livingston..........it actually 'saved us' from another hotel we had booked on the river that was LOADED with 'stink bugs' in every corner of the room. While there were some bugs in our room at Livingstone (and wasps), the hotel did a great job to keep them under control. The bar is beautiful, but the food selections...

As you arrive you immediately get the sense that this is a hotel that is going to be a lovely place to stay. Zebras roam the grounds, as do giraffe, although the latter we only saw in the evening. The location is right on the Zambezi, with a superb view of the spray from the falls. You can walk along...

Just recently visited and stayed two nights. Was in Room 5086 and location was great with nice view and easy walking to the restaurant and outer deck. Hotel is very nice but rooms are outdated and could use some TLC. Wasps were everywhere and when the maid cleans your room she/he leaves the door open so when you return to...

Our family of three visiting Africa for the second time found the Royal Livingstone almost perfect in all areas ranging from excellent service to the high quality in food and other amenities. We were greeted by the very affable and informative "Man with the Golden Keys," Edward Minyoi, appearing colorfully dressed in different native attire each day ready to solve...

This is the ultimate location to stay and experience the Falls at its best. Glorious sunsets on the deck and the sound of the Falls is awesome. Easy access to the Falls. Take a good read to enjoy poolside and experience zebra, giraffe, buck etc. casually walking / grazing in the hotel grounds.

This is a 7 star location with a 5 star hotel. The rooms are large and all with River views. The Hotel staff are good and very helpful. It is extremely safe with security located everywhere. It should have a 5 star rating but sadly the restaurant service does not measure up to the quality of this Hotel.

Great location for the falls and other experiences. Lots of bugs in the room though and too slow to receive something from housekeeping. Food was ok. Bar staff not so friendly down on the deck. Love the animals walking around
