David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Spa, Zambia

Legendary explorer, Sir David Livingstone, said “I am prepared to go anywhere, provided it be forward.” When the David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Spa celebrated its opening on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, it was apparent that the hotel has more in common with this famous pioneer than just its name; it has also adopted his visionary stance. With 72 river-facing rooms and 5 luxury suites, guests here are treated to views that can only be described as glorious.

One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the area is renowned for adventure offerings and, an abundance of birds and wildlife. Guests can also indulge in a colonial fantasy as they are immediately plunged into an era of exploration, adventure and old-worldly splendour upon entering the lodge.

The spectacular two-storey property offers breathtaking views of Siloka Island. Décor incorporates elements of wood, earth and raw stone, accentuated by touches of gold, bronze, copper and ivory, creating a sensual allusion to the Orient. The lodge also boasts a Camelot Spa where guests can experience productsand therapies inspired by the harmony of the Earth, and the Ukuchina Massage, a signature treatment to the lodge.

    I had a chance to visit the David Livingstone just weeks before it opened in April 2008. One of the other advantages of this lodge is that the guests have their own private sundowner boat which was built new at the same time as the lodge. One deck can be used for a private party.

    This resport has a few good features that make it ideal for a conference. The rooms are almost all the same except for the suites. So, if you have a group, they won’t be comparing rooms and complaining to the leaders. There is a good conference facility and plenty of chairs by the smallish pool.
