Guest area

The emphasis at Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel is on relaxation. There are many quiet corners to unwind with good company or a book. You can relax at the pool under shady umbrellas where you'll be served with light lunches, snacks and any refreshments you feel like.

Delicious, freshly-prepared meals are served in the dining room, on the terrace or - if the mood permits - out in the tranquil gardens. Spa therapists offer full-body massage and therapies in the privacy of your suite.

In winter months, a crackling fireplace provides the perfect spot to enjoy pre- or after-dinner drinks.


You're spoilt for choice by the range of activities on offer at Victoria Falls and surrounds so there really is something for everyone's tastes. We recommend booking ahead for any 'bucket list' activities, such as helicopter flights, tours of the falls, white water rafting and visits to Devil's Pool (seasonal) to ensure availability and fixed price, while many others can be booked by the concierge or a recommended town activities centre.
