We have just returned from a wonderful stay at the Royal Livingstone and would not hesitate to recommend it for anyone visiting Victoria Falls. The hotel is in a beautiful location with uninterrupted views of the Zambezi and 'smoke' rising from the falls. Sundowners on the deck overlooking the river and falls are an experience not to be missed. Staff...

Had sundowners on the Royal Livingstone deck. Superb setting, even if the drinks are stretching towards the very expensive side... The spray from the Falls and the great sunsets always make it worthwhile...

This hotel is set in the National Park area - there are Giraffe, Zebra, Monkeys, Impala walking around the grounds - not at all threatening, rather surreal. It is a beautiful colonial style hotel sitting on the banks of the Zambezi river. The decking area right on the river bank is a place of peace and solitude to read or...

The hotel and restaurant is gorgeous!! We came here for a few drinks as the sun was setting and had the best time. Definitely worth a trip to experience the Zambezi in all its glory!! The hotel and grounds are spectacular and worth a walk around as well. Don't miss!

This has to be the place to use in Livingstone. Lovely 5 star apartments overlooking grounds with free roaming zebras and giraffe and the Zambezi River itself. Excellent service and meals and only 10 minute walk to Victoria Falls. Old colonial bar and lounge. Drinks prices a little steep.

As a traveler looking for great a experience and money well spent, this was surely not it! Service was substandard with a $700/night stay for B&B at so called "5-star" we where shocked to have seen and experienced this great Natural Wonder in substandard quality. One word can describe the stay - "arrogance" as the Hotel Group know they have...

Simply the best and most luxurious hotel in Zambia. The huge colonial style buildings are so comfortably appointed that you could easily spend an entire day there reading and drinking gin and tonics. It sits on the banks of the Zambezi River so relaxing on a lounger or on one of the decks watching the hippos yawn and the fish...

This is a beautiful property. Gracious, grand public rooms and areas, all beautifully decorated, with lovely views over the Zambezi River and the mist rising off Victoria Falls. The grounds are well-maintained, and zebras, giraffes, baboons, and other wild life roam freely for great photo ops. Our guest room, at an exorbitant price, was a wee bit tiny for two...

The hotel itself and the rooms are beautiful. The service here is definitely lacking. We were traveling with two other couples and unfortunately we experienced an incident that ruined our stay here. $600 cash was stolen from a secret compartment in a backpack in the room. It was our fault, of course, that the cash was not in the safe....
