Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel

Family fun in the wild

A chic hideaway within Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve

Just a 15-minute drive from the thundering Victoria Falls and set within the eponymous private game reserve, Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel is a wish hideaway amid some of Zimbabwe’s most beautiful natural landscapes. The hotel, which has 16 elegant suites each blessed with contemporary decor and en-suites with claw-foot bathtubs, is perfectly placed for wildlife watching from your balcony or getting out on safari in the surrounding wilderness. Here, endangered rhinos are the big draw and you can take a tour with an expert guide to see them in their natural habitat. 

Families are well looked after at this property, with toys and games provided for younger wildlife watchers, while solo travellers or couples will love lounging by the outdoor pool, surrounded by leafy gardens that sing with colour when the flowers blossom. In-suite spa treatments offer full relaxation with expert therapists using African-made products. 

Dining here is a real treat, too, as the 1871 restaurant is a stylish hub of contemporary cuisine, utilising local ingredients such as fish from the Zambezi river to create a menu of exciting farm-to-table dishes, all paired with excellent regional wines.

The impact of your stay:

  • Stanley and Livingstone is a member of the More Family Collection, a group of lodges and hotels in South Africa and Zimbabwe committed to sustainability. They integrate community upliftment programs, local sourcing, skill development, and collaboration with local authorities to maximise their positive impact on the communities where they operate.
  • Revenue from the hotel contributes to the Masuwe Primary School, funding teacher accommodations, ablution blocks, new classrooms, and solar lights.
  • The Zambezi is home to critically endangered black rhinos, with only an estimated 5,000 to 6,000 remaining. Staying at Stanley and Livingstone provides a unique chance to see this rare species, while contributing to funds for The More Community Foundation’s Victoria Falls Black Rhino Conservation Project. This project involves vigilant monitoring, support for dehorning initiatives, relocation to ensure genetic diversity, and inclusive education for local communities to stabilise and maintain community-wilderness buffer zones.
  • Through their non-profit, The More Community Foundation, they actively engage in conversations about human-wildlife conflict within the local community. Their efforts in educating individuals and communities aim to foster a safer environment for peaceful coexistence between humans and wildlife.
