Overall the Royal Livingstone is a remarkably nice but large hotel with great food, great pool and good service. Its location is the closest to the Falls and with zebra literally walking around the swimming pool there is something really special about this hotel. In a nutshell we would love to hate it as it is so big....but actually, we're pretty fond of it! Just be careful on how much you eat and drink here - extras are priced exceptionally high.
The Royal Livingstone - The Details
The Royal Livingstone is a Sun International hotel located on the forested banks of the great Zambezi River, one thousand yards upstream of the mighty Victoria Falls. The hotel comprises 180 assorted standards, but spacious en-suite guestrooms, each with its own private veranda, stretched along the river bank. All guestrooms are luxuriously furnished, with crisp white linen and large comfortable beds to welcome and offer the perfect sanctuary to retire in. Bathrooms feature spacious showers and Victorian style baths.
The Royal Livingstone dining room is the hotel's main restaurant, offering a unique top-class breakfast, ‘alfresco” lunches and a dinner à la carte menu with a dazzling array of dishes from the river and ocean, as well as bush and game fare.
Light lunch is also served outisde on the veranda overlooking the rolling lawns and the Zambezi River. Light refreshments are also served throughout the day. Guests may pass lazy days on the magnificent sundeck overlooking the Zambezi as it flows relentlessly to the Falls.
