We’ve worked hard to design a collection of enriching experiences, whether you’re looking for adventure, family time, relaxation, exploration or the chance to give back…
At the Hotel
You have the choice, while with us, to do as little or as much as you please. Those who don’t wish to move far have a number of ways to wile away the hours of the day in our African Eden.
Our Mack & Madi Kids’ Adventure Explorers club gives children (5 to 11 years) a little extra freedom to explore and just be kids. While the kids are occupied, grown-ups can enjoy a decadent in-room spa treatment. In between time at the pool, or afternoon tea on the lawn, settle down for a delicious meal at our restaurant, 1871 at Stanley & Livingstone. Dining here, whether in the dining room, on the sun terrace or out in the gardens, is as anticipated as the appetite-stirring adventures.
On the Reserve
The 4 000ha Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve is the only privately-owned reserve within the immediate vicinity of the Victoria Falls (just 12km away). Along with once-in-a-lifetime black rhino tracking, visitors to this African Eden join their professional Field Guide to experience the other members of the iconic Big Five, general game – including the sable antelope and eland, and a thriving bird population with an abundance of species. The diverse habitats (across grasslands, teak forests, and along the Masuwe and Nakavango rivers) are the perfect environments from which to enjoy scenic morning and afternoon game drives, exclusive black rhino conservation experiences, private walking safaris, and horse safaris led by expert guides.
Explore Vic Falls
We take great pleasure in creating enriching experiences* that reconnect you with the ‘wonder-fulness’ of life. And Victoria Falls is never short on wonder! Whether you enjoy interesting tours in picturesque locations, relaxing outdoor activities, or adventures that will get the adrenaline pumping, we have something for you!
Take a private guided tour of The Falls, or experience it from above during a helicopter Flight of the Angels. Sail into the sunset along the mighty Zambezi on a river cruise, or bungee jump in the gorge. These are but of a few of the ways to forge your own personal connection with Zimbabwe!
Woodlands Community Tour
Visitors have the opportunity to experience a very humbling way of life in the rural community of Woodlands, located on the fringe of the Victoria Falls Private Game. Here the 1200 residents (across 4 villages, 120 homesteads and 16000 ha) face extreme challenges, including the lack of basic services like ablutions, electricity and running water – exacerbated by a staggering rate of unemployment. Most survive through subsistence farming, but this too is difficult due to erratic rainfall and direct competition with wild animals. It’s hard to imagine living like this.
Yet the people of Woodlands remain determined to build a better life for themselves, making this encounter a deeply humbling and inspiring one. Stanley & Livingstone (together with More Community Trust) has committed to helping uplift Woodlands, and guests are invited to get involved.
