Colonial luxury with majestic views of Victoria Falls

Arrive in exclusive Zambian style, taking in the majestic Victoria Falls on a water taxi journey. On the banks of the Zambezi River, The Royal Livingstone Hotel is named after the legendary explorer who named Zambia’s iconic waterfall in honour of his queen. Paying tribute to this glorious era, our hotel evokes Victorian elegance and colonial traditions in impeccable style, and offers unforgettable adventures.

All of our luxury rooms and suites feature a private veranda with mighty Zambezi River views. The sights and sounds of river life can be soaked up as you laze in a hammock, enjoy a massage in a waterfront gazebo, or cool off in the pool. Sip refreshments in a lounge that displays the paintings of Sir David Livingstone. Partake in charming high tea rituals, and later sundowners on a deck overlooking Victoria Falls. Savour African and European fine dining, followed by nightcaps under the stars with undeniably the finest Livingstone hotel in the region.

Make the very most of our extraordinary destination with trips of a lifetime. The Big Five can be spotted on a river cruise or a 4x4 safari. The rapids of Batoka Gorge offer adrenalin pumping thrills.
