Generally an excellent place to stay overlooking the mighty Zambezi river and very close to Victoria Falls The staff are very friendly and the activities are very interesting even for families. Lady Livingstone is a marvel.

Sometimes when you pay a bit extra, you don't get what you paid for. David Livingstone definitely does not fall into that category. From the moment you arrive, to the moment you leave, the service is wonderful, the rooms excellent and the atmosphere relaxing. The buildings are beautiful, very African in design and aesthetics. You will love the thatched roofs....

Spent three nights here on both business and pleasure. Conference rooms well set up and a pleasure to work in. Rooms very classy and comfortable. Great breakfasts and dinners with awesome views from the deck. The lower deck on the river is perfect for lunches and beers. Lovely pool right on the river. Lady Livingstone cruise a must. Staff very...

DLSL is both beautiful, accommodating and friendly in service, aesthetics and dining. The bigger rooms are vast with a hot tub, proper tub, 2 balconies, 2 televisions and a proper sitting area. Love the thatched roofs! Because of that you may see a spider, preying mantis or mosquitos since it's not sealed, but that's part of the fun! (Plus they...

Without a doubt this hotel provided a splendid atmosphere for rest and recuperation. I enjoyed my stay, 3 nights, whilst attending the Engineering Institution of Zambia Annual Symposium and AGM. The staff were magnificent!

This lodge is just spectacular, from the friendly staff, the views of the river and their own sunset cruise boat! The staff just can't do enough for you, they go way beyond normal expectations to make your stay wonderful. The staff that work in the activities centre are also brilliant, they give helpful recommendations to save you money when booking...

Everything was perfect, great and affordable food! We only stayed for dinner, but this place was also offered as an option by our tour operator. Next time we'd choose this and not the Zambezi Waterfront Lodge, which was not so nice...

Got to spend three nights at a truly wonderful place on the Zambezi River in Livingstone. Staying at the David Livingstone Lodge and Spa raised the experience of visiting Livingstone to a totally different level. The Lodge facilities are some of the finest i have seen, truly world class, the view from the my room. The food was excellent, the...
