THE ROYAL LIVINGSTON
Harking back to the days of polished brass, fine crystal and silver service, the Royal Livingstone not only has an enviable view of the spray of Victoria Falls but also immaculate grounds and a gracious approach to hosting guests.
On the banks of the Zambezi River, The Royal Livingstone Hotel is named after the legendary explorer who named Zambia’s iconic waterfall in honour of his queen. Paying tribute to this glorious era, our hotel evokes Victorian elegance and colonial traditions in impeccable style, and offers unforgettable adventures.

Sip refreshments in a lounge that displays the paintings of Sir David Livingstone. Partake in charming high tea rituals, and later sundowners on a deck overlooking Victoria Falls. Savour African and European fine dining, followed by nightcaps under the stars with undeniably the finest Livingstone hotel in the region.
