The Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara

A grand hotel in the spirit of the Victorian era, set on the banks of the Zambezi River

The spirit of the Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara

Named after a legendary African explorer, the Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara captures the grace and elegant of the Victorian era. More than 170 luxury rooms and suites decorated in a colonial style boast private verandas that open out onto the river. Elegant suites are situated in two-storey clusters that are inspired by the grand estates of times past. Beautiful paintings and black and white photographs of pioneers of old call to mind the grandeur of the colonial era, which a hint of tribal warmth adds an authentic African touch.

Guests can unwind in the cool shade of the travelers’ bar and sitting room while savoring an impeccably served high tea or delight in a refreshing dip in the sparkling swimming pool before tucking into delectable dishes from the restaurant’s á la carte menu. Adventurous guests can experience an elephant back safari or game drive, and adrenaline enthusiasts can seek thrills from bungee jumping to abseiling and white river rafting.
