Zambia is situated mainly on a vast plateau 3 000 metres above sea level, and boasts the Zambezi, Kafue and Luangwa rivers – as well as one of the largest waterfalls in the world, the Victoria Falls, which it shares with neighbouring Zimbabwe. Offering some of the wildest and most remote game areas, Zambia is a friendly and peaceful country. It has a remarkably low population in a deceptively massive country giving off an impression of an Africa undiscovered.
The Royal Livingstone
This hotel must occupy one of the most unique sites in all of Africa, its lawns stretch down to the Zambezi River just a few hundred meters upstream from the Falls themselves. The public areas are spectacular with an obvious colonial feel to them and the staff uniforms complete the image.
There is no doubt that sitting in the bar area or on the deck overlooking the river and the spray from the Falls is a treat to behold and worth a visit even if you are not resident but the price of food and drinks in this establishment is in my opinion higher than it ought to be and the rooms fall a little short of full 5 star standards, they are very small and there is little privacy from your neighbours.
