The Victoria Falls is where the wide Zambezi River simply drops some 100 meters into a narrow gorge. The Falls lie across the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, and Livingstone is the town on the Zambian side. Called “Mosi-oa-Tunya”, (the smoke that thunders) in the local language the Falls are one of the seven wonders of the world and when you first come to Zambia, Livingstone is a must visit destination.

Set on a hill bordering the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and overlooking unspoilt bush, Stanley Safari Lodge is only three kilometer from the Victoria Falls. Stanley Safari Lodge is tranquil and intimate, and with only 10 private cottages or suites we are able to give you an unmatched level of entirely personalized service. The accommodation is unique, individually designed and with an eye for detail that will make sure you will enjoy your African experience to the utmost. You are able to see the spray of the Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River and the African sunset from every cottage & suite.

Livingstone is known as home of the Victoria Falls but also offer some game viewing opportunities from Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. The park has a lot of antelope species, elephant, zebra, buffalo and perhaps what most are keen to see is the white rhino, and a pack of wild dogs.
The rhino were reintroduced in 1994 and are a major highlight as rhino in Zambia is only seen in one other place, North Luangwa. The guide walks offer the best chance to site the rhino as opposed to game drives.

The beauty of Livingstone is that you can see game even from the Zambezi River – elephants and hippos are a common site. There are many bird species as well and the most commonly see are kingfishers, African skimmers, and swallows.

The ten uniquely designed chalets are constructed of teak and local stone and are open fronted or more colonial style brick and tiled rooms which are closed. From each of them you can enjoy the splendid views of the Zambezi Valley.

We stayed in the family room for three nights in April and loved everything about this place. The open room design was wonderful. The host and staff were very helpful. The falls can be seen in the distance. We did not have a vehicle so the lodge assisted with all the tours and transportation needs to the different sites. Both the vegetarian (myself) and non-vegetarian (my family) was delicious. The lounge area has beautiful views, board games and books. I would highly recommend.
worldtraveller4_10 about Stanley Safari Lodge
Stanley Lodge, a short while to get to the Falls, which is the most awesome view to behold. The staff were really helpful friendly and provided a first rate service. the main lodge for meeting and eating was such a change to what one would normally experience. Food was excellent , and it was something very chilling to hear Lions roaring at 4.30 in the morning . There were a lot of activities on offer including the bike ride we undertook with guides.
Paul B about Stanley Safari Lodge
The Lodge is terrific, staff attentive and lovely, and the hosts, were welcoming and helpful with planning activities. The food was top quality and prepared perfectly. And we are grateful for the very helpful service we had from Curtis, who ferried us around.
Elaine S about Stanley Safari Lodge
My wife and I just spent several days at this most amazing lodge. The service and food were terrific. Dennis and his staff were there to provide anything we wanted. I purchased a large iron wood hand crafted elephant and they had it completely packaged. The falls and our tour with Curtis was spectacular. We definitely will return as there are a bounty of activities. Thanks so much to Dennis and the Stanley Safari staff for a truly memorable stay.
MarcySMS about Stanley Safari Lodge
We had a fabulous 4 night stay at Stanley Lodge with the purpose of visiting Victoria Falls. The setting is beautiful and we were very happy with the hospitality of the staff. We were treated to first class service and personal attention.Our son had a birthday and he was treated with a surprise birthday cake and serenade from the Stanley Lodge Team. We would highly recommend Stanley Lodge to anyone visiting Livingstone.
