Honeymoon: Victoria Falls

An unrivalled African honeymoon at The Royal Livingstone, Zambia

Honeymooners looking for romance, adventure and indulgence against a backdrop of jaw-droppingly beautiful and dramatic scenery need look no further than the Royal Livingstone Hotel. Set on the banks of the Zambezi overlooking the Victoria Falls – the only hotel in this unique location - the Royal Livingstone recalls the romance and charm of a bygone era while offering experiences that are seductive mix of the old, the new and the truly unforgettable.

First seen by Dr Livingstone in 1855, the Victoria Falls are the seventh wonder of the world and thrillseeking couples can see them from a micro-light or a canoe, a helicopter, a jet boat or a white water raft. For a more leisurely outing, honeymooners can take a romantic sunset cruise down the Zambezi in the ‘The African Queen’ riverboat and play at being Bogart and Hepburn.

Couples can also enjoy a unique five star dining experience aboard The Royal Livingstone Express steam train. Starting late afternoon, the three hour journey into the heart of the untamed African bush is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. As the sun sets the stunning Zambezi valley comes to life, all watched from the comfort of the lovingly restored Pullman style coaches on the Mulobezi Railway line. The return journey in the evening offers star-crossed lovers the opportunity to enjoy a dazzling starscape unique to the last of Earth’s Dark Continents.

No African honeymoon would be complete without a safari and the resort itself is located in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya Wildlife Park and neighbours the world famous Chobe National Park in which safaris are available on elephant and on horseback. There is also a special rhino safari to see this endangered species, of which only five remain in the park.

As you might expect the resort’s Royal Spa offers a variety of treatments to relax and rejuvenate but Royal Livingstone’s guests can even enjoy a massage right on the banks of the Zambezi River in a private gazebo – a mirror placed at the base of the treatment table ensures that spa goers don’t miss a second of the wildlife action around them.

After the sun sets, the night sky in Africa is filled with stars, more romantic than candlelight for al fresco dining; guests can dine under the monkey tree in the hotel gardens.

Each room at the hotel has its own balcony overlooking the Zambezi, the ideal place to read, nap, enjoy a sundowner, play cards or just sit and relax. With its colonial style buildings nestled in the shade of ancient trees, the Royal Livingstone Hotel is one of those special places that feel magical – perfect for newlyweds of any age.
