Architecturally, the buildings take their cue from African renaissance. The Royal Livingstone Hotel, stretches luxuriously along the banks of the Zambezi River. A stone’s throw away from the mighty Victoria Falls, the Royal Livingstone overlooks the smooth waters just before it plunges over the legendary waterfall creating a permanent waterspray. The Hotel consists of a series of 17 colonial-style buildings, with deep verandas, set amidst indigenous trees and plants. The main hotel is a sequence of thatch-roofed buildings, most African in their influence, and incorporates the lounge, restaurant and bar. A classic swimming pool visually links the waters of the river with the terraces of the hotel, with a sweeping timber deck planted in the swirling water of the Zambezi. The reception area is framed by a classic courtyard featuring a fountain and exuding the aroma of herbs from the interior gardens. Overhead, wooden fans cool the charged atmosphere. The resort’s deep, shaded verandah, offers an uninterrupted view of the Zambezi River and is the ideal place to curl up with a book discovered in the well-stocked library. The lounge is filled with original artwork depicting scenes of David Livingstone’s great African adventures.
