Bask in Graceful Safari Style:
Only Steps from One of the Seven Natural Wonders

Immersing travellers in Africa’s beauty, The Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara boasts a unique location overlooking the spray of Victoria Falls. The hotel is located on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, and all hotel guests have free unlimited access to Victoria Falls.

Travel to this iconic hotel is hassle-free, with daily flights from Johannesburg and Lusaka to Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport in Livingstone or Victoria Falls Airport. Guests have an option of three arrival experiences, either by road during a luxury transfer, by helicopter or a water taxi transfer along the Zambezi River, which gives guests their first glimpse of Zambia’s free-roaming wildlife.

Authentic Luxury, Victorian Elegance and Zambezi Views

Exuding the charm of Victorian times, luxury guest rooms and spacious suites, all feature a balcony or veranda with an outdoor seating area facing gardens frequented by free-roaming zebras, impalas, giraffes and monkeys, and the Zambezi River beyond.

Culinary Journeys 

Culinary experiences at the hotel celebrate local flavours and ingredients, complemented by international culinary traditions. Drinks are spectacular on Kubu Deck, facing the Zambezi River, ending with sunset cocktails. A private ‘Dining by Design’ experience provides a one-of-a-kind romantic dining experience on a decorated riverside deck or beneath a monkey tree overlooking the Zambezi River. Incredible scenery lures travellers to Kubu; edging the Zambezi, cushy chairs overlook the splendour of Victoria Falls. Chilled beverages refresh throughout the day, and as a majestic sunset unfolds, tropical sundowners are served to a moving soundtrack by a flautist. A dinner menu fusing local and international cuisine is the perfect accompaniment to a day of activity.

Safari, River and Sky Thrills

Let the wonders of Africa enthral your stay. As wildlife roam around the hotel grounds and further afield, choose from several enriching activities to relax or excite. Wildlife river safaris on the mighty Zambezi reveal excellent game and bird viewing aboard specially designed boats. A gorge picnic experience is the perfect opportunity to combine the thrills of a helicopter ride and a picnic in pristine nature. The Gorge picnic experience begins with a scenic helicopter flight over the Zambezi River, inviting guests to gaze down on the mighty Victoria Falls from the air. After reaching a zig-zagging funnel of gorges, the helicopter lands at Rapid 21, where a gourmet picnic is then laid out in a secluded riverside spot wholly hidden from the outside world. As guests relax on the sandy beach at the edge of the Zambezi, a team of butlers serves local delicacies, gourmet picnic fare and chilled beverages.

Wellness Journeys

The hotel’s award-winning spa provides a haven for guests to restore their well-being and discover a refreshing approach to unwinding and relaxing while on holiday. The spa features four riverside treatment gazebos with breathtaking views and a riverside relaxation lounge with healthy cuisine on request.
