Victoria Falls is pretty awesome all on its own. But when you combine the legendary cascade with some of the exceptional experiences on offer at The Royal Livingstone resort, you’re looking at the best day ever in Africa.
Start your day with a adrenaline-pumping helicopter or microlight flight over the famous falls, its deep gorge and along the Zambezi River. Hippos and crocodiles are clearly visible from the air, as are the elephants grazing on the bright-green islands upstream from the falls. And then marvel at the zigzag funnel of the gorges that the water tumbles into.
Follow that up with a luxury spa treatment on the banks of the Zambezi River. The menu at Anantara Livingstone Spa offers an array of authentic African therapies, as well as classic Western treatments that promote wellbeing throughout your body. All of this undertaken in outdoor treatment gazebos with lush garden and river views, followed by a sojourn in the spa’s riverside relaxation lounge with healthy cuisine on request.
After dark, indulge yourself with a romantic (and very private) “Dining by Design” gourmet dinner on an elegantly decorated riverside deck or beneath a monkey tree overlooking the Zambezi. Mediterranean, Asian and African flavors are all on offer as you select the perfect sequence for your gourmet experience in collaboration with your personal chef.
