Our take on David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa

David Livingstone is a great choice for your stay at Victoria Falls on the Zambian side. We found that the food was good, the staff were friendly and the rooms were immaculate. The hotel is within walking distance of the Livingstone Waterfront area, which is an activity hub and starting point for many of the activities on offer in the area. The hotel also has its own dedicated activities desk. A short cab ride takes you into town, where there is a Debonairs pizzeria, Steers fast-food chain (similar to Burger King), and various shops and markets.

Victoria Falls
"The Smoke that Thunders"

Victoria Falls is the most spectacular sight anywhere in Africa. One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, this huge curtain waterfall lies on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, where the mighty Zambezi River plunges 108 metres down into a narrow gorge, creating a waterfall that is a mile wide. A visit to Southern Africa is not complete without a trip to Victoria Falls. The falls can be visited from the Zambian or from the Zimbabwean side. The town on the Zambian side is called Livingstone, and the town on the Zimbabwean side is also called Victoria Falls. Both locations are safe, popular tourist destinations with good infrastructure and a variety of accommodation options.
