Stanley & Livingstone

Stanley & Livingstone is Victoria Falls first luxury boutique hotel, primely located 15 minutes from the falls themselves and surrounded by Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve. This makes it the ideal base from which to explore, as well as a quiet retreat in one of the continent’s most-loved destinations. The hotel’s design takes a fresh and easy-going approach to colonial style, which encourages guests to settle in and relax. Thoughtful comforts, attentive service, and excellent food enhance the experience by ensuring they are very well taken care of – a hallmark of Stanley & Livingstone.

Guests are accommodated in 16 luxury Suites, privately set amongst the hotel gardens. Each is elegantly appointed, no one better than the last, with a canopied king-size bed, minibar, slipper bath and walk-in shower, TV lounge, and terrace – for morning coffees and private dinners.

Two sets of the Suites are inter-connecting and give families their own space to settle in, while still enjoying the hotel’s warm Zimbabwean hospitality. Everything from in-suite spa treatments and dining, to outings (children have their own Mack & Madi Kids’ Adventure Explorers program) is taken care of.

The Hotel Concierge is always on hand to assist, and complimentary transfers link guests to Victoria Falls. Days here can be filled with adrenaline-igniting activities, close-up wildlife encounters, and humbling cultural interactions. Or taken as a pause, settled into a hotel pool lounger.

Hotel Children’s Program - Mack & Madi Kids’ Adventure Explorers

Mack & Madi Kids’ Adventure Explorers
“As parents to twins, Mack and Madi, I and my late wife Britt (partner in life and in MORE) learned what it means to travel as a family. Africa is a new world for children – filled with colorful people, marvelous attractions, and curious animals – the stuff of storybooks and dreams come true.

To discover it together is pure magic …reconnecting loved ones with each other (tech and work forgotten) and the ‘wonder-fullness’ of life. In this spirit, MORE brings you our Mack & Madi experience, giving your family every freedom to enjoy these precious moments to the fullest.” – Robert More
