Zambian splendor in the spirit of the Victorian era
The Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara, the glory of Zambian hospitality and the pinnacle of African luxury, is located on the forested banks of the magnificent Zambezi River, upstream of the famous cascade where it thunders into the Batoka Gorge. Enjoy elegant safari flair just a few steps away from one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Every verandah offers expansive views of the Zambezi River and the grasslands as you relax in style.
The Zambezi River is unquestionably Africa’s playground for guests who enjoy a challenge and adventure. Travelers can see some of Africa’s Big Five up close from a personal safari vehicle, from a boat cruise along the river, or even from the opulent Kubu Deck on the property itself. Sports enthusiasts can battle their nerves in a jet boat or white water raft as they navigate the tremendous rapids of the Batoka Gorge or test their guile against the famed Tigerfish. You can spend the quiet evenings in the legendary Travelers Bar and then drift off to sleep between the comfort of refreshing, cool sheets while listening to the distant sounds of Africa.
In the hub of African adventure, the hotel provides the most luxurious lodging. The colonial-styled interiors of more than 170 opulent rooms and suites feature private verandahs that overlook the river. Elegant suites are arranged in two-story clusters that are modeled after old-school mansions. Additionally, there are two gyms, a huge pool with views of the river, a spa, and a beauty salon available to guests at the Royal Livingstone.
