Thank you very much to all the staff at the Stanley & Livingstone. Rarely got such a great staff taking care of all our needs and wishes.

Just returned from a lovely few days at the Stanley & livingstone. Wonderful rooms and lovely friendly staff who were v helpful. Food was ok, beef definitely the speciality on the menu, and there was a good selection of wine - though none included and all starting from c. 30 dollars. The absolute highlight for us was meeting the ecologist... 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.

A truly magnificent hotel with a spacious suite of rooms which included a sitting-room. Very well-appointed and clean, with wonderfully friendly staff and excellent food. The Hotel overlooks the safari park and waterhole and is in an elevated position. The evening game drive we took part in was absolutely outstanding, with Cedric, our guide, providing us with a constant flow... More

Beautiful lodge full of memorabilia of the Stanley and Livingston era. Our lodge was a huge suite and regal bath. We looked out on zebra grazing, baboons playing, and cape buffalo roaming. Staff was helpful and responsive, food was delicious.

I have to start by saying the location of this hotel is completely wrong on the map - which gave things a bad start. Once finally getting to the hotel I couldn't say it was a warm welcome - I will acknowledge I got upgraded to the Loge over the huts but I just never found the staff that friendly... More

The maximum note to service, very friendly and helpful personal. Food with high quality and good presentation. Huge rooms, with a privileged view to a articial lake where animals come to drink water. Room service is highly efficient. The location outside the city for us to travel with a child five years was not very nice, but for those seeking... More

We enjoyed the hospitality and setting of this hotel. The opportunity to see black rhino was priceless, thanks to Cedric our guide. Loved the large expansive rooms with separate sitting area, private verandah and nice bath tubs. There are no mosquito nets but a/c generally works well. The rooms really need some updating, floral chintz drapes and dark green bedspreads... More

Two weeks ago we booked a Master Chalet at Old Ursula Camp for 2 nights in January 2015. The reservation was made via Expedia for accommodation only and this suited us since we plan to visit several game parks in Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa and only needed a base to explore Victoria Falls. I received confirmation of my booking... More
