Admire Victoria Falls from a Luxurious Base along the Zambezi River

Immersing travellers in Africa’s wild beauty, The Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara boasts a unique location overlooking the Victoria Falls.

An hour 40 minute flight from Johannesburg to Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport, followed by a 25 minute drive through historic Livingstone, The Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara is set along the banks of the great Zambezi River, in full view of the misty spray of the Victoria Falls.

An exclusive ferry along the Zambezi River on the Water Taxi transfer, will kick-off the adventure, giving travellers a glimpse of Zambia’s free-roaming wildlife and a breath-taking view of the flora and fauna. With only a 10 minute walk through a private entrance to the iconic Natural Wonder dubbed ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’, the hotel capitalizes on an unmatched location overlooking Victoria Falls, allowing guests to enjoy unlimited and complimentary access to the falls.

Exuding the charm of Victorian times, luxury guest rooms and spacious suites all feature a balcony or veranda with an outdoor seating area facing gardens frequented by free-roaming zebras, impalas, giraffes and monkeys, and the Zambezi River beyond.

Zambezi river wildlife and the majestic Victoria Falls can be admired from a swaying hammock or during a cool dip in the pool. The Anantara Spa rejuvenates the body and soul with African wellness and beauty traditions embraced in elegant suites, along-side the pool or in riverside gazebos.

Authentic culinary experiences celebrate local flavours and ingredients, complemented by international culinary traditions. Drinks and light meals in The Royal Livingstone Lounge are enhanced by David Livingstone’s paintings, books and maps. Stories are shared in splendour at The Royal Livingstone Lounge over high tea in the afternoon, and later fine wines or whisky are the perfect accompaniment to live piano music.

Quintessential gin bar journeys include African botanical infusions, signature cocktails and personalised concoctions, can be enjoyed on Kubu facing the Zambezi River, ending with a magical sunset. Dining by Design tailors fine dining with a personal chef and butler in a choice of idyllic private settings.

Sophisticated meeting, event and wedding venues are remembered for their iconic views and meticulous attention to personalised detail.

A leisure or business visit to The Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara offers a memorable experience begging to be repeated.
