The Royal Livingstone was one of the most wonderful hotel experiences we have had during all of our international travels to date. The hotel and setting is lovely, but what made the stay the ultimate experience was the entire staff. They are all so wonderful, helpful and sincerely happy to have you visit them. They go above and beyond to make sure your stay is memorable. They absolutely exceed any expectations you may have. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: Lower floors have direct access to walking right out to the Zambezi River and view of the mist from the falls.

Enjoyed a wonderful Easter weekend with my family at this beautiful hotel in Zambia. Every single experience exceeded our expectations and we will definitely return. My favorite moments were those spent on the deck enjoying views of the Zambezi with the falls in the distance

We visited the Royal Livingstone for the start of our 25th Wedding anniversary celebration holiday. I am not able to adequately express how outstanding in EVERY aspect the staff, hotel and food were. It is seldom that all three of these vital components are in perfect sync. A special mention must go to the lovely Lesnes, Sylvia and our Butler Naomi ( who worked magic on both our waterlogged falls shoes and our mud logged bush walk shoes). The staff are the soul of this hotel, nothing is too much trouble, the smiles are genuine and the chatter delightful. We left the hotel already planning our next visit. Thank you for making our stay truely outstanding

A MUST DO experience. The Royal Livingstone is an exceptional resort and the staff is just amazing. The resort facilities, the guest room comfort and the lovely roaming wildlife are all top notch. I will return.
