The Royal Livingstone
Inspired by the grand estate houses of the past, the Royal Livingstone is actually a series of colonial-style buildings set amid colorful gardens. Natural light flows throughout the bright cream-colored rooms, which all have huge windows and private balconies overlooking the Zambezi River. All rooms have their own private butler service and suites have a separate lounge and dining area.
The reception area of the hotel has a tranquil ambiance with overhead ceiling fans, original African art, and comfortable chairs in a well-stocked library. A favorite afternoon activity is taking a dip in the swimming pool, which is raised up on a spacious wooden terrace overlooking the river.
