"Large hotel but comfortable"

2 nights Arrived 23 Sep 2007
"A large hotel with a mixture of clients from businessmen, south African 'weekenders' and tourits from many different countries.

Clearly different from the lodges previously visited or perhaps lodges upstream.

Neverthless made a change and I think I would do the same again." See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia

"one night at Victoria Falls"

1 night Arrived 20 Sep 2007
"The whole place made me laugh, from the "Zulus" who greeted us, to the colourful paintings, the metal warthogs and the real zebras and monkeys running around. Wonderful food." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 5n in South Africa; 1n in Zambia

"Vic Falls"

2 nights Arrived 16 Sep 2007
"I think anywhere would be a difficult act to follow after the bush so while the hotel was fine it felt very busy and noisy after the previous week.

Quite odd to bump into semi tame zebra around the hotel grounds after the previous week too!

Enjoyed seeing the Falls but be aware for a good view you need to traverse the border to Zimbabwe. Cost $55 per person for Visas and the customs formalities and hassle of street sellers are best avoided by having a guided tour another $55 per person."

"Disney on the Zambezi"

2 nights Arrived 11 Aug 2007
"It was a bit of a shock to the system arriving here after being in the bush. It was obviously much more commercialised. But the hotel was fine and we enjoyed visiting Vic Falls and did a microlight trip.

We can also reccomend afternoon tea at the Royal Livingstone- yum! The views were spectacular." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia

"Nice place to stay for a couple of days. "

2 nights Arrived 4 Aug 2007
"This hotel is fine, though in need of a lick of paint in some places. Good location for visiting the falls themselves, but without the "class" and setting of the Royal Livingstone." See all these reviews: 7n in Zambia; 1n in Zanzibar
