Amazing location on the Zambezi river, but most of all outstanding service and cuisine quality. The perfect place to experience Vic Falls. Activity center is a bit of a pain, but pool on the river and spa are great to balance.

Lovely rooms, incredibly friendly staff, great food, awesome breakfast spread. Only downside is the helicopters if you want a siesta - nothing earplugs don't solve 😊. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Great value for money.

I had a pleasant stay at David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Spa. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The lodge faces the river and only 20 minutes from the Falls. They offer most of the falls activities.

The location is a great and it is nice that it has a modest pool - with poolside service (key). The food was average and breakfast was a bit disappointing - fruit was not fresh nor plentiful and the cereals were stale. There was a nice omelette bar which was very good.

This is a lovely lodge with super friendly staff, a great view, fantastic swimming pool and very comfortable rooms. The Spa is amazing. We had dinner at The Boma which was a very nice experience and the food was tasty. The breakfast selection is very good. I highly recommenced The David Livingstone!

Made a pit stop on my way from Cape Town to Nairobi for 2 days. The hotel is very scenic and set up beautifully along the riverbanks of the Zambezi.
