The Falls Resort, Zambia celebrates a decade with a $7 million refurbishment, as well as a new ten year celebration package.
Join the Victoria Falls Resort to celebrate a decade of hospitality with a four night stay at the five-star deluxe Royal Livingstone Hotel. The iconic resort which stretches along the banks of the Zambezi River in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Wildlife Park, is set against the dramatic backdrop of the Victoria Falls. Comprising two hotels, the resort offers the ideal base for travellers seeking to experience one of the world’s natural wonders!
Named after the intrepid explorer Dr David Livingstone, the five-star deluxe Royal Livingstone Hotel evokes the romance and charm of a bygone era. The hotel consists of 17 colonial-style buildings set amidst indigenous trees and plants in the 46-hectare Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Wildlife Park. All rooms open out onto a landscaped pool area, and each room has its own shaded balcony overlooking the Zambezi.
The four-star family hotel, the Zambezi Sun, represents Zambian tradition. The hotel has the feel of an old walled city with open buildings in earthy colours and clusters of rooms. The walls are decorated with bright mosaics, ethnic wall stencils and Zambian artworks.
Upon arrival at The Royal Livingstone, guests at the hotel will enjoy a relaxing back, neck and shoulder massage on the banks of the Zambezi River and an afternoon of rest and relaxation. Sundowners on the terrace only a few hundred metres from the Victoria Falls are highly recommended, before settling down to enjoy a sumptuous dinner under the stars.
The next morning, guests will rise for a tour of breathtaking Victoria Falls and the surrounding area, whilst other optional activities available include a sunset cruise on the African Queen, a 70ft catamaran, on the Zambezi River, or a unique dining experience onboard the Livingstone Express, a lovingly restored steam train.
