I notice some of the reviews are for Livingstone hotel bar, which is a sister hotel with a view of the Zambesi river - this is not the same as Avani hotel bar, from which the river is not in sight - it is next to the pool.

The staff encourage guests to have dinner at the bar, and as the food (except pizza) is actually brought from the kitchen on the other side of the pool, service does take some time.

The bar is outdoors, which is nice provided the weather is good (which it was during our visit in early May), and they have a nice live group playing who avoid the usual mistake of using their amplifiers on full volume!

We saw zebras wandering on the lawn just near the bar, nice view!

Am enclosing a few photos of the bar and surroundings, as well as the zebras!

Sat here with a drink to enjoy the most beautiful sunset of my life....
Words can't do justice to the beauty and calm of those moments
A must-do for all travelling to Livingstone.

My friends and I went here 2 nights in a row. The first night, we had to squeeze in to get a seat and had fabulous cocktails with very slow service and had to go to the bar to get and pay our bill, but it was a holiday weekend, so we were patient. The second night, we got there plenty early to get a front-row seat, but the cocktails tasted totally different than the previous night. I guess it depends who is making them. All in all, a great place to watch the sunset, but at certain times they only serve drinks, which are on the high side, but you are paying for the drink and the view.

This place can provide both tasteless food, and poor service, you can wait for just menu for up to 35 min, so it will take you min hour to get your food, and guess what, it will be cold. Area is nice, so one star it about right
It absolute disappointment for me

Pizzas next to the pool are amazing straight from pizza oven outside. Service impeccable. Menu could have more options but what we sampled was great. Large variety of drinks incl cocktails at reasonable prices. Nothing special but great enough when you don’t feel like dining outside the resort of by the pool. Zebras a nice touch
