Certificate of Excellence
Royal Livingstone Victoria Falls Zambia Hotel by Anantara will appeal to the traveller in search of luxury, extravagance and sheer indulgence. It is set in the lush riverine belt on the banks of the Zambezi River with the dramatic torrent of the Victoria Falls a 10 minute walk away. In the cool lounges and shaded verandas of the Royal Livingstone Resort, you will encounter the elegance and luxury of an earlier time.
