This was a majestic start to a two-week trip through several places in southern Africa. It is difficult to find a better way to walk onto a property and see zebra and kudu drinking at a watering hole just meters away. Beautiful accommodations and excellent food. Safari drives were outstanding--a unique opportunity to see black rhino. Drivers and guides were... More

I have stayed at the S&L several times with groups and it is always a highlight of our African adventure. The rooms are very nice, the food is great, and the staff is very accommodating. The proximity to Victoria Falls is an advantage as well. We will keep the S&L in our itineraries....

Set a few km outside Vic falls the hotel was recommended to us by the travel agent. This is the best recommendation ever. Having stayed at big hotels in town we were looking for something more bespoke & the Stanley & Livingstone couldn't have been a better choice. Set within the game park with an wonderful range of wildlife coming... More

Here's some idea of the S/L staff. While visiting Victoria Falls, I had a short hospital stay. I was visited by Moline who apologized for not being present when I was taken from the Lodge. I told her that certainly was no problem. She brought a large box filled with soft drinks, cookies, fruit, pastry and chips. The hospital staff... More

Accommodations are posh and comfortable. Food is excellent. Service is good. Game viewing is excellent, even from the patio. One complaint: The heat in my room didn't work. When I finally figured out where to complain (the office is not labeled), they moved me to a new room. Even when working, the heat/cool systems are overly complicated to operate.

Over ally, excellent service. I will definitely call again. The game drive was superb. I also enjoyed breakfast on the balcony watching buffaloes etc on the water hole. The room service was superb. The reservation officer/manager is very helpfull and kind. Thank you for the 5 star treatment

If I ever need to run away this is where I will run to! The rooms/cabins were fabulous. The staff was friendly, helpful and so kind. The food was excellent. I will come back though for the bench that overlooks the watering hole. I can't even begin to describe how awesome it was to watch the elephants, giraffe, zebras, baboons,... More

This review is only for the afternoon game drive and bush dinner as we didn't stay at the location (but after driving past them I wish we would have!) We had Mike (radio: Mike Mike) as our guide for the evening and I have to say that he made the experience truly amazing. He is passionate about the rhinos and... More

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
