The David Livingstone Safari Lodge

Located on the banks of the mighty Zambezi, the David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Spa prides itself on stunning views across the river, ensuring wonderful views whether you are taking a cooling dip in the pool or enjoying a magnificent African sunset with drink in hand.

An abundance of exhilarating activities are on offer, ranging from trips on a river steamer to white water rafting for those seeking to get the heart rate up! The 77 elegant rooms also benefit from vistas over the water and ensure guests have a luxurious and comfortable stay whilst you explore this renowned and unforgettable location.

Facilities & Activities

What better way to soak up the African sun, than to laze by the infinity pool overlooking the river which can later be explored aboard the The Lady Livingstone, a 144 seater river cruiser.

To keep adrenalin-seekers happy, optional activities (additional charge) close by include bungee jumping, sky diving, white water rafting and abseiling. Locally you can also look forward to game drives and elephant back safaris, even try your hand at fishing for the elusive tiger fish.  Be sure to also enquire about a visit to the local craft markets!

For time out or to revitalise, the Livingstone Spa & Wellness Centre offers a variety of treatments, ranging from intensive sports therapies to facials.
