Arrive by water taxi at this historic, grande dame with manicured lawns that lead down to the Zambezi River. Zebra freely roam the grounds, and the Victoria Falls are a short stroll away (guests have complimentary access). Rooms are classic and elegant - choose between garden or river views - decorated in a creamy palette with wood and bamboo furniture, and butler service. Relax by the riverfront pool or with a picnic under the shade of a monkey tree; sign up for the Saturday yoga sessions or have a Zambezi massage using African floral oil in one of the outdoor treatment gazebos.
For dining with a difference, book a five-course dinner on The Royal Livingstone Express, a restored steam locomotive which chugs through the scenic Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and Zambezi River Valley. On Fridays, the boma dinner is held in a nearby village where barbecued meats and locally-inspired dishes are cooked on the grill before a traditional performance by Makishi dancers or Ngoni warriors.
Get even closer to nature with a river cruise on the Zambezi, absorbing the natural beauty that surrounds the hotel’s grounds. For a truly exhilarating experience, take helicopter ride over the Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
