David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Spa

An outstanding 5 star safari lodge and spa on the bank of the Zambezi River in Zambia

Introduction

The David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Spa is located about 9km from the Victoria Falls on the Zambian side of the upper Zambezi River. Shuttle services are available to and from the falls and Livingstone town. Opened in 2008, the safari lodge is a few minutes off the Mosi oa Tunya Road within the Mosi oa Tunya National Park which is managed by the Zambia Wildlife Authority. This means that guests must pay the national park fees for each day that they stay at the lodge. However, this means that guests do have access to the park if they wish to go on game drives.

David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Spa has 77 beautiful and comfortable en-suite luxury rooms with a private balcony, all of which face the Zambezi River. The executive suites are fully equipped with a separate lounge/entertainment area, and have a Jacuzzi bath as well. Guests can enjoy the services in the health spa and the gym which offers personal training. These facilities are inclusive. Staying at the lodge is costly and suitable for those who are willing to spend a lot of money.

The safari lodge has beautiful luscious gardens, a swimming pool and terrace all facing the river. Docked on the shores is The Lady Livingstone cruise boat which belongs to the safari lodge. This 144 passenger, 3 deck boat offers David Livingstone Safari Lodge
and Spa guests sunset cruises with light meals, snacks and drinks for an additional fee. Dining options at the lodge include the Kalai Restaurant which serves Afro-Arabian cuisine and the Ujiji Bar.
