Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel

The Stanley & Livingstone Victoria Falls

Named after two famous African explorers, the Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel in this corner of Zimbabwe harks back to those ancient days when the continent was wild and Victoria Falls was first discovered by the European colonialists.  This graceful hotel is surrounded by an African Eden called the Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve and is just 15 minutes from the astounding World Heritage Site. 

Stop a while and soak in the renewed atmosphere of those colonial exploration days, with a modern take on the turn of the century décor where a classic sense of timelessness adds to your holiday in Zimbabwe.  This hotel is sunny and roomy, the epitome of grace and luxury, just for guests who love the African wilderness yet want to pamper themselves after hot outdoor activities in nature. Settle into 16 lavish suites all with private patios, modern showers and baths, air conditioning, mini bars, satellite TV and comfy beds looking out over the superb game reserve. 

Families can book two interleading rooms for their space and needs and children will love the Victoria Falls activities and gardens at the Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel. Enjoy all meals at the inspirational gourmet restaurant where meals are served mostly outdoors with splendid views of the aqua swimming pool, the manicured gardens and the stunning waterhole where wildlife feeds and drinks. 

The Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel in Victoria Falls exceeds all expectations thanks to its sense of order, its homely comforts, its fantastic hospitality and friendly staff, its delightful gardens and proximity to the wildlife out there. Sleep in utterly charming rooms with their interior design so thorough it is eye catching, radiating an understated elegance. Everything is tasteful, comfortable and without pretence. And the food is delicious: plated beautifully, healthy, abundant, and paired with excellent wines from South Africa.

Many guests who love this hotel rave about the amusing parade of animals just below the lodge, including impala, zebra, baboons, and other wonderful creatures and the exceptional service the front desk provides when booking excursions such as a visit to the elephant sanctuary and a trip to The Devil’s Pool.

Its scenic and quiet location out of town makes you feel like you’re already on safari while only moments away from one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World. It’s situated in Victoria Falls, 12 km from the actual Victoria Falls, and the Stanley and Livingstone Boutique Hotel features accommodation with a restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool and a bar. A few steps from The Stanley and Livingstone Private Game Reserve and 11 km from Victoria Falls National Park, the property features a garden and a terrace. 



The Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel is a little gem surrounded by the gorgeous Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve, a mere 15 minutes from the actual Falls so guests get to see the thunderous spray and then retire to an intimate haven of tranquillity. We love the hotel’s gardens, dining terraces, exquisite bedrooms and waterhole nearby where wildlife gathers all day. 

Visitors to this Zimbabwe tourist destination can choose to stay here a few days, then take a tour over the border to Botswana’s Chobe River or the delights of Zambia and the Caprivi Strip in Namibia. The Stanley & Livingstone Hotel offers a sophisticated, modern colonial style lounge, pretty terrace in neat gardens with tall, graceful trees, and wonderful foods. Each room boasts mini bars, air conditioning, mosquito nets, private verandas and showers plus bath tubs. 

These rooms are classic safari style with almost Victorian style canopied beds, deep baths, and stunning garden settings, with comfy and elegant décor all round. Overlooking the game viewing waterhole, it is a great place to spend a few days in comfort and relaxation. Families choose two interleading rooms and kids are entertained while parents grab a massage or a drink at the bar.  

The swimming pool is refreshing and perfectly placed for a drink, a bit of wildlife viewing and a bit of resting in the sunshine. Maybe invite a spa therapist to come to your suite to sort out those tired muscles and get a facial too. Then pop down to the restaurant, 1871, for delish casual meals such as burgers, vegan bowls, summer rolls and then some amazing venison dishes for dinners.
