This elegant Victorian-style hotel is set within the game-rich Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve, a stone’s throw away from the famous falls. Representing the grandeur of a bygone era, this boutique hotel allows you to experience one of Africa’s great highlights and the adventures of Victoria Falls in glamour and style.
The Stanley and Livingstone has been completely refurbished in recent years to cater for the most discerning of tastes, with only 16 exquisitely furnished suites, including the sumptuous honeymoon suite, to choose from. No detail has been spared to make your stay at the Victoria Falls one of uncompromised luxury and finery.
Each suite embraces a spacious bedroom, sumptuous Victorian-style bathroom, living-area with all mod-cons and a secluded patio overlooking the African bush. The elegant bathrooms blend old and new influences – a romantic Victorian bathtub, modern power shower, and a range of amenities for decadent bathing. Every suite offers air-conditioning, mini-bar, safe, DVD player, satellite television and telephone.
By day many guests choose to relax outside on the raised patio overlooking tropical gardens and a waterhole, which attracts a constant flow of animals, including elephant, buffalo, kudu and waterbuck. The swimming pool provides welcome respite during the heat of the day, and guests can laze around the pool or enjoy cocktails within full view of the surrounding wildlife.
In the evenings, the plush bar area is a natural gathering place and guests are encouraged to visit the handsomely-stocked wine cellar that boasts a selection of connoisseur’s favourites from France and South Africa. The elegant dining area is in a class of its own and offers the definitive fine dining experience in Victoria Falls. Service is impeccable and the food superb, with the emphasis on fresh local ingredients, lovingly prepared by a master-chef.
