Our family began our African Safari in Livingston, staying at the Stanley Safari Lodge. The lodge is a located in the hills above the Zambezi River, away from the noise of the touristy areas, but close enough to be there within minutes. Individual lodges are discreet from each other for quiet and privacy, each with a fabulous overview of the... More

We spent 3 nights at Stanley Lodge and felt like we were royalty. Our first evening we were treated to our dinner at a table overlooking the infinity pool and Victoria Falls in the distance. Each night we had amazing food presented by our own friendly staff person. The rooms were immaculate and opened onto amazing views. Our anniversary evening... More

A very pretty lodge close to all Livingstone has to offer. Having come from Robin Pope camps in Nkwali and Tena Tena in the Luangwe valley it was a gently introduction aback into civilisation. The service once again good, staff excellent and Peter our personal Butler a joy. The falls are a short ride away and they were full and... More

We loved our experience at Stanleys and were fortunate enough to be the only two guests in camp. Mabvuto was our very special butler and could not do enough to make us happy. He is a wonderful man with a great heart for hospitality! The setting is beautiful and overlooks a part of the reserve (lions roaring at night) with... More

We spent 3 nights at Stanley Safari Lodge between Christmas and New Years. This really is a lodge with it's own special feel, with wonderful rooms (each one different) rather than a standard hotel with standard rooms. The view from the rooms are all beautiful, overlooking an expanse of green forest with the smoke from Victoria Falls in the background.... More

Open air, wonderful people, great service, great food, beautiful sunsets, infinity pool, lots of things nearby to do. Really enjoyed staying here. Highly recommend. The rooms are open to nature, you can't be afraid of bugs, but they make every effort to make sure they don't interfere with your stay. It is great for the lover of outdoors. Rooms are... More

I cannot rate highly enough. The staff was all fantastic and we were so well cared for, and attended to, while the staff still managed to make themselves incredibly discreet! Well organised, was such a great and special time for us, thank you!!!

Angena musanga or going into the bush allows an individual to reconnect with the fundamentals of being and with the intrinsic qualities of self. While we did not in any genuine sense "go into the bush," still, the atmosphere of profound quiet and repose at Stanley Safari Lodge gave us a genuine sense of the experience. From our lodging, the... More

A beautiful and natural lodge with an excellent vibe adn staff. This was our first stop on a Zambian adventure and an excellent way to ease into the bush. The lodge is not on the river, but you can see it and the views over the valley are beautiful. The rooms are very spacious and luxurious in an African style.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
From every room at Stanley Safari Lodge, you can see the distant views of the spray of the Victoria Falls. Set on a hill overlooking unspoiled bush, only 3 km birds view from the river and the Victoria Falls, Stanley is a perfect base from which to explore the delights of the area – from river rafting and bungee jumping to sunset cruises, elephant back rides or walking with lions. Quiet and intimate, Stanley Safari Lodge will tailor your stay to suit you.The opensided Main House has been designed with space and views in mind. Enjoy sundowners in the African style lounge, French cuisine with an African twist in the dining room or spend some quiet time in the library or upper deck discovering the secrets of Africa. This half open house has a truly African feel, while the colonial closed suites with private plunge pool evoke the elegant era of Stanley and Livingstone. However, at Stanley Safari Lodge most rooms are half open, which enables you to absorb the sights and sounds of the African bush fully. ... more   less
