This hotel was in a great setting. The veranda of our room looked directly onto the bush and during our stay we saw many animals there. We were reassuringly protected by an electric fence around the hotel grounds. The rooms and the service were of an exemplary high standard. Breakfast in the open air looking onto a busy waterhole was... More

Stanley and Livingstone is a phenominal property. The property is gorgeous, and the view of the watering hole with visits by zebra, cape buffalo and giraffes only adds to the overall experience. Awesom

We were blown away by the sight, both from ground level and from the helicopter, of Victoria Falls. The views of wildlife from the terrace of the hotel were breathtaking, and then as a bonus, safari buggy rides into the private game reserve to view the rare and endangered black rhino were fabulous.

Spacious comfortable suite. We enjoyed tea and coffee at sunset on our private patio while watching the zebras and cape buffalo at a watering hole and laughing at the baboons swinging in the trees. The grounds are beautifully maintained, with gardens and koi ponds. On the early morning game drives we saw elephants (which we got to ride), giraffes, cape... More

Although build to look like a charming, turn-of-the century property, The Stanley and Livingstone is only 10 or so years old, with all the conveniences of a luxury modern resort. The grounds are beautifully maintained....and we enjoyed watching the animals, and many birds, stopping by the watering hole, all hours of the day. The fact that this is also a... More

Beautiful colonial spacious rooms, very romantic. Everyone was friendly, helpful and accommodating assisting us in the best experience. The food was divine. The morning game ride and breakfast out in the bush was memorable. This is our first trip to Zimbabwe and I believe the Stanley Livingstone experience has made this an unforgettable holiday. A MUST to do if you... More

From the time I arrived at Stanley and Livingstone hotel, I felt comfortable knowing that if I had questions, someone was nearby to answer them. The property was well situated to be able to sit in privacy on my deck or take a short walk to watch zebra and other animals come to the water below the lodge to drink.... More
