A member of the elite Leading Hotels of the World group, this hotel was established in 1904 and has remained one of the most luxurious hotels in Africa ever since. With classic and elegant décor, each of the 161 rooms and suites here offers comfort in style along with all the modern amenities expected of a five-star hotel, including 24-hour room service, air-conditioning and Wifi in all rooms. Accommodation ranges from Standard Rooms up to the singular Presidential Suite. Some interconnecting Standard Rooms are available, and are ideal for families visiting together.
Enjoy African fusion cuisine at Jungle Junction, which allows diners to enjoy the evening entertainment with a view of the falls’ gorges. The elegant Livingstone Room restaurant serves exquisite à la carte options alongside a seven-course degustation menu in opulent surroundings. Stanley’s Terrace is famous for its High Tea; venture out here for spectacular views and you may even feel the spray from the falls below! Stanley’s Bar is the perfect place to unwind with a sundowner, or even the signature homemade lemonade.
In addition to the falls, guests will find a variety of National Parks nearby, including Hwange and Chobe. Within the hotel there’s no shortage of things to do either. Take a dip in the Edwardian pool and enjoy a drink at the poolside bar; have a brisk workout in the mini gym; browse the fascinating Larry Norton Gallery; relax after a day of sight-seeing with a massage at the Beauty Spa; or engage in a little retail therapy at the Gift Shop. Not to be missed here is Stone Dynamics, a permanent exhibition of stone sculptures that has been on display at the hotel for nearly 30 years.
