This was our first time at Stanley & Livingstone. From the minute we entered, and saw the all of the animals in our back yard, we knew we were in a very special place. Every one of the staff was exceptionally warm and gracious. The grounds are magnificent and very well maintained; the facilities are flawless. The suites are huge,... More

Only four Villa's at Ursula Camp , we stayed in Elephant which was next to the lodge where we have breakfast and evening... More

After 10 days of safari experience in the bush of Botswana, Zimbabwe was our last stop, to see Victoria Falls. The immigration experience at the border was terrible, and the government people do not appear to appreciate the tourists at all. Very bad experience there. The hotel is very nice, a relief after the safari experience and a return to... More

This is a small, luxury hotel set its own private game reserve just a couple of miles out of Victoria Falls. The rooms are superb, the grounds are lush and well-tended, the food is first-class and the service great. The hotel has its own bore hole which attracts all sorts of animals from the reserve to the back of the... More

this is a special place. we were on a small group tour and we pretty much filled the "rooms" which are duplexes actually. Not to worry, because sound transmission is zero. Thought I could supplement the reviewer photos, but they were very complete. The food and wine were excellent. The tours arranged by the lodge to both the game preserve,... More

We found everything to be most beautiful and appealing -- and to enhance the unforgettable setting, a superb staff -- friendly, courteous, fun to talk with. The Stanley and Livingstone will be one of the many memorable moments of an unforgettable journey to Africa.
