The Thundering Waters

The local tribes people call it Mosi-Oa-Tunya – ‘The Smoke That Thunders’. The fine spray of the mighty Victoria Falls may be seen like a cloud across the bushveld, throwing rainbows hundreds of feet in the air.

On the forested banks of the great Zambezi River, upstream of the mighty cataract where it thunders into the Batoka Gorge, is The Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara, the pride of Zambian hospitality and the ultimate African luxury experience.

Enjoy the site of zebras and giraffes roaming the property, the exquisite spa gazebos overlooking the river and the sunset of a lifetime, with the spray of the Falls in the distance .

The Life of the River

For guests with an appreciation of adventure, the Zambezi River is definitely Africa’s playground. Guests may view some of Africa’s Big Five on a cruise boat up the Zambezi River, up close from a private safari vehicle, or even from the exquisite Kubu Deck from the property itself.

Keen sportsmen can pit their wiles against the legendary Tigerfish, or test their nerves in the mighty rapids of the Batoka Gorge in a white water raft or a jet boat. During the peaceful evenings, you may choose to spend your time in the world-renowned Travelers Bar, and then fall asleep between the luxury of crisp, cool sheets with the sound of Africa in the distance.
