Royal Livingstone

Restaurants & Bars


    As one of the early settlers in Livingstone wrote in his journal, "At 6 o'clock the sundowner ritual begins…This is a time-honoured social routine…Groups of up to a couple of a dozen would visit each other for a drink, to gossip and exchange news." The two sundecks overlooking the Zambezi River at The Royal Livingstone Hotel make the perfect setting in which to honour this fine tradition, as the sun slips gently into the mist of the thundering falls.

    The Royal Livingstone Dining Room will feed your soul and your stomach. Indulge in our fine African-inspired cuisine, and soak up the historical ambiance of the glorious setting. Indoor tables offer a more intimate dining experience, while those outside bring to life the sights and sounds of an African day. The Lounge and Travelers’ Bar caters for high teas and drinks against a backdrop of grand paintings of David Livingstone and décor harking back to an age of exploration and adventure. High Tea is served every day at 15h00 and it’s simply unmissable.

    With restaurants and bars overlooking the mighty Zambezi and majestic Victoria Falls, you can expect nothing short of the best from these Royal Livingstone dining options.

    The Sundecks

    ​African sunsets are legendary, and so much more a sunset right over the Victoria Falls. The Royal Livingstone’s two Sundecks are the perfect location for sundowners. Located right on the Zambezi River, they offer unrivalled views of the river and the thundering Victoria Falls. A sundowner cocktail on one of Royal Livingstone’s sundecks is a must do.​
