The Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara

Discover The Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara

On the forested banks of the great Zambezi River, upstream of the mighty Victoria Falls where it thunders into the Batoka Gorge, is The 5 * Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara. Indeed, it is so close that the waterfall's spray can be viewed right from the hotel veranda, the edge of the falls can be seen from the Sun Deck and there is direct access to the world wonder from the hotel grounds. As the Royal Livingstone is located in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park you may also be surprised to encounter zebra or impala grazing on the hotel's manicured lawns.

The hotel's luxurious colonial decor is present throughout the 173 spacious rooms along the river bank including 3 luxury suites and a Presidential Suite. All rooms en-suite guestrooms have their own private veranda, stretched along the river bank. The main hotel is a sequence of thatch-roofed buildings and incorporates a lounge, restaurant, and bar. The swimming pool visually links the river with the terraces of the hotel.
