Just 15 minutes away from the magnificent Victoria Falls, The Stanley and Livingstone Boutique Hotel is ideal for guests seeking a luxurious and tranquil environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the Victoria Falls town.
Situated on a 6,000 acre private game reserve, the lodge fills a unique niche in catering for the discerning visitor, offering guests superb cuisine, personalised attention, Big 5 game drives and nature walks as well as elephant back and lion walking safaris. The manicured, lush gardens of the hotel, which blend into the African bush beyond, are home to a wealth of bird and animal life, and provide the perfect setting from which to enjoy a visit to this destination.
Guests can relax alongside the sparkling swimming pool and order cocktails from the pool bar whilst watching elephants, kudu and waterbuck at the waterhole just 25 metres away.
The elegantly furnished dining room serves sumptuous meals and delectable cuisine, complemented with fine wines direct from the richly stocked wine cellar - a connoisseur's delight, with South African and French as well as fragrant, locally produced Chardonnay.
The Stanley and Livingstone Boutique Hotel boasts 16 tastefully decorated suites. Each suite has its own living room, Victorian-style bathroom and separate bedroom. Each suite comes complete with air-conditioning, mini bar, satellite TV and DVD player, and patio overlooking the luscious garden.
A Honeymoon suite, complete with 4 poster bed and drapes, offers an outside spa bath with a secluded entrance and private view of the lush gardens.

General Information For Guests
Guests can enjoy various activities including a helicopter flight over the Falls, bungy jumping, white water rafting and scenic tours of Victoria Falls and surrounding areas (these activities are at an additional cost).
Victoria Falls is a malaria area and necessary precautions should be taken.
Historically, any guests that did not overnight out of the country did not have to get another visa on re-entering. However, with immediate effect Zimbabwe will be charging for re-entry visas, for guests who have been out of the country on a day trip. Therefore, any guests booked on a Tour of the Falls in Zambia or on a Chobe Day Trip must buy a double entry visa.
The weather is hot and wet during Summer (November to March) with temperatures of around 30C / 86F. Expect late afternoon andamp; evening thunderstorms. There are cool to dry winters (April to October) with daytime temperatures of 20C / 68F.
Effective 01 January 2007, outlets in Zimbabwe with Standard Chartered Bank point of sale devices will be unable to process any MasterCard transactions. This includes hotels, restaurants, shops etc. As Standard Chartered Bank is widely used in the service industry, we recommend against relying on a MasterCard for any payments.
Many establishments cannot accept other credit card payments for operations on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls, and these will need to be paid for with cash or travellerandrsquo;s cheques - examples of these include microlighting, bungy jumping and cruises. Please check when booking regarding payment methods. You should therefore carry foreign currency (US Dollars, Euro, British Pound) in small denominations, as establishments also cannot accept Zimbabwe Dollars as a form of payment (Government regulation). Cash (US Dollars) can be withdrawn from banks or ATMandrsquo;s with a credit card. The ATMandrsquo;s are based at all the banks in Victoria Falls town and the limit is US$200 per person per day. :: ::Please note a new law has been passed in July 2006 that it is illegal to wear (or even have in one's possession) camouflage-style clothing if you are travelling in Zimbabwe. It is an offence to be in possession of a "camouflage uniform" which is defined for legal purposes as any piece of "apparel" bearing a camouflage print or pattern. Should you be found in possession with any camouflage-style clothing you could receive a fine, 6 months in jail or both. They hold the right to detain passengers for up to 48 hours in prison before charging them. This is very important - no camouflage prints on board shorts, trousers, shirts, hats, bags etc.
