Rather than the dress, tux, cake, flowers… it’s the memories made together that’ll last a lifetime – and there are few experiences more memorable than your Victoria Falls honeymoon. This is all the motivation we need to help you get it exactly right: combining complete luxury with authentic adventure, setting the rhythm between relaxing and exploring.
Between spa journeys for two and tours to discover the area’s many wonders, we’ll fill your experience with surprises you didn’t know existed…
Hint: arriving to dinner in the light of only lanterns and stars. You can trust our obsession with the details to make it magical.
Though thoroughly modern in their comforts, the smart, thatched Suites preserve and embody the romance of a bygone era with enormous four-poster beds, slipper baths, and terrace bistro sets for two. You’ll be tempted to cosy up all day in your bathrobes. We say do it. There’s room service at your beck and call, and with your Suite encircled by lush garden, you can relax in utter privacy. When you do step out, leave it to our staff to arrange something truly wonderful.
Victoria Falls appeals as much to the romantic at heart as it does to the adventurist. Helicopter flips over the Falls, long walks through its riverine forest, big five game drives, and taking the plunge with a tandem bungee jump are sure to quicken the pulse as much as the sight of your loved one. Romance really shifts into gear when you cruise off into the fabled African sunset aboard the top deck of the Zambezi Explorer. And finally, it’s just the two of you.
The hotel offers the perfect mix of adventure and escape for newlyweds. Just 10 minutes out of Victoria Falls’ bustling centre, it’s an immersion in the genteel pace of Zimbabwean life. Sunbathe at the poolside, unwind with couple’s in-suite spa therapies, watch the animals come by the waterhole, sip sherries by the lounge fire, and look forward to decadent dining. Stanley & Livingstone is all this and more… with a few extra special treats to spoil you.
Clinking generous splashes of Cape premium wine, paired with a contemporary, seasonal menu in the chandelier-lit 1871 at Stanley & Livingstone is an every-night affair. Dreamy dinners under the stars or prettily set up in your Suite are served here, too. Breakfast could be at your table on the hotel terrace or moved to the lawns overlooking the waterhole. And the golden hours should definitely involve afternoon tea. Whatever you fancy, it’ll be our pleasure.
