We were extremely disappointed. We really thought that we would get to see lions here. Quite honestly I don't believe that they have the big 5. On our drive we came across people on elephant back, which tells me that there are no lions. We only saw buffalo and a few kudu. 3 hours of being bored. We were taken...

Thank you very much for your feedback. We can confirm that we do have the big 5 on our reserve however, we are sure you are aware that sightings are never guaranteed but the Guides do their utmost best to ensure they see as much of the animals as is possible. The cats are very difficult animals to see and...

We spent two days at the Stanley and Livingstone Safari Lodge. It was wonderful. Stepping back in time with elegance and superior service. I would recommend this Lodge to anyone. Quiet, beautiful and African wildlife viewing constantly from all areas of the facility.

You feel like you are back in time. It is luxurious, elegant and relaxingly quiet. It is situated a little ways outside victory falls but they have a shuttle or like us, a driver to take us to our tour. The meals are made to your liking by a great chef. The balconies look out onto their private reserve. The...

We were welcomed at the Lodge by most of the staff. Everyone was very friendly and most helpful. They assisted with our every requirement and helped with all activity arrangements, it all ran very smoothly. Personalized treatment was great and made us feel at home, we enjoyed the peace and tranquility and exclusivity the lodge offered.

Had a long weekend stay at S&L and truly had a magnificent stay. From the reception upon arrival, the meals service, transfers in and out of town for activities, the general attention to every detail - the place is exactly as they promise you, if not better. We were simply spoilt throughout the weekend. Not to mention the obvious beautiful...

The Stanley & Livingstone Lodge is lovely, and my husband and I enjoyed our stay immensely in Victoria Falls! The rooms and grounds are beautiful. We went there during the rainy season in February. One of the highlights of our visit to the lodge was the safari game drive through the private game preserve. The vegetation did make the animals...

We stayed only two nights at Stanley&Livingston. Too short but wonderful. It is a real nice location. The evening drive with our guide Africa was great and the bus dinner too. We liked it very much. The way/transfer to the Victoria Falls was well organized.

A stunning place to stay and the attention to detail was perfect. The suites were beautifully decorated and very large. Stunning views and we even saw a Giraffe and Kudu wondering through! The game drives were also brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble, from taking us where ever we needed to go and friendly staff.
