The hotel is ideally situated on the banks of the Zambesi River and within easy vision of the water spray generated from the Victoria Falls - though not a lot as it was the dry season. The setting is both iconic and idyllic. In addition, the hotel has some sort of rights for guests to visit the Falls, free of...

From the time you enter the gates, it is clear that you are in a wildlife preserve. There were impalas just inside the gate, zebras grazing on the grass by the guest rooms and the occasional monkey. Rooms are comfortable and well furnished. It is a pleasure to take a drink at the bar or on the deck on the...

We were completing a 9 night stay in South Africa and Zambia and thought it would be nice to end the stay with an elegant dinner.

The rest: The service was slow and indifferent. They...

Both the restaurant and the bar have excellent food at the Royal Livingstone. If you go to the restaurant for dinner it can be pretty buggy, though. The steak was excellent quality and perfectly done. Dessert was also delicious. Their homemade ice cream is well worth the calories. I tried the prawn appetizer but was not impressed with that and...

Ask for extra attention to clearing the insects from the pool, especially if you want to swim laps. Double check restaurant reservations if you are offered one on introduction. good luck with the mosquito netting - it cocoons you in the bed. lots of staff, and generally a great place.

Without a doubt this a beautiful, five star property in terms of the location and facilities. Located on the banks of the Zambezi River, just up from the Victoria Falls, the rooms and public areas are stunning. Service unfortunately is inconsistent at best. Among the shortcomings: no shampoo in the room upon arrival, citronella candle was not replaced after requested...

My family and I have just enjoyed two great days at Royal Livingstone. A spectacular hotel in a perfect location with lots to recommend it. The service was attentive and very friendly and we were made to feel welcome. However, we dined both nights in the restaurant and were disappointed twice. Unimaginative dishes and in my wife's case partially cold...
