Royal Livingstone Hotel review

A wonderful location.

The hotel was excellent but " Africa -lite ". It could have been anywhere in the world but with tame zebras, giraffes and impala .

A good last stop to bridge the move from Africa to Europe.

Incredibly posh

Great location a few minutes walk from the falls. Not close to town, but the hotel was so nice that we were never tempted to leave.

Our room had a beautiful enclosed riverfront porch and all the amenities. Each group of rooms had a day and an evening butler to help with anything and everything. Experienced a classic high tea overlooking the falls, but that was overshadowed by a delicious gracious dinner.

Royal Livingstone Hotel review

Amazing hotel! After almost two days of traveling from California to get to Africa we were swept off our feet with the warmth and hospitality when we arrived!

As you enter the lobby and see the beautiful Zambeze river through the open air windows it takes your breath away. Then the tea and hand massage while we checked in was delightful. Every staff member was totally attentive during our two day stay. I highly recommend and would certainly stay here again. We did not participate in activities as we wanted this time to rest, enjoy the location and prepare for our upcoming safari days.

We did walk to Victoria Falls and hike down to Boiling Point (with the baboons and monkeys!) to watch the rafters depart which was a great outing and so easy to get to from the hotel. The giraffes and zebras on the property are quite fun.....but they are wild! We did participate one day with one of the guides when they were being fed.....such fun and so delighted we ran into him on the grounds and he invited us to join him!

A five star hotel next to the Victoria falls - for me a 45 year dream come true.

Zambian hospitality all the way with a day trip to Zimbabwe as well.

Royal Livingstone Hotel..THE Falls Hotel

Anyone going to see the Falls really should stay here since it is truly grand and in sterling terms not expensive. We rounded off our trip to Botswana with a trip to the Falls and 3 nights at the Livingstone and it was a very good decision.

We went home refreshed and recharged and the Falls were worth two visits.

The Royal Livinstone is a beautiful hotel

The Royal Livingstone is a beautiful hotel and provided a fitting end to our safari expereince and an excellent location to experience the majesty of Victoria Falls.

The only glitch was when they billed us for the basic room rate (already paid via Expert Africa) but that was probably because of the confusion over our 'upgrade' from the Zambesi Sun.

Royal Livingstone Hotel review

Great location and excellent facilities.

Slight negative for poor waiter service at dinner. Good attention on initially taking your order, but then descends into chaos as the restaurant gets busier.
Bit pricey for the quality on offer.

Rest and relaxation

After a week of safari it was very nice to relax in the sumptuous surroundings of the hotel. The location is amazing, and sundowners on the deck were a great way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel was preparing for a major conference, and there was a certain amount of preparation work for that going on - but it was kept out of the way as much as possible.

We did travel over to Zimbabwe to see the falls from that side - and we strongly recommend that. It does require some negotiation of African customs and immigration, but that in itself is an interesting experience!! It did not seem that there was anyone arranging trips over, but that added to the interest - working it all out ourselves was a good challenge. Someone who is less confident might want to find out more about the procedure before going.

We also did the Jet Extreme boating experience at Victoria Falls. The kids loved the extreme of the boating, but what was particularly interesting was the drive through the villages to get there and stopping at the Chiefs house!
