This is the cradle of civilisation. This is a place so stunning, words and images fail to do it justice. Wildlife roaming free in vast reserves. Cities that promise every possible sort of luxury. Mountains dusted with snow. The untamed beauty of the Kalahari. Vineyards celebrated the world over. Beaches the colour of talcum powder, lapped by a cerulean ocean. A study in dramatic contrasts, South Africa is the new age traveller’s dream destination.

The cuisine at the Royal Livingstone is inspired by cultures as dramatic as the continent itself. The Travellers’ Bar and Lounge is a place where guests can relax under thatched shade. With its comfortable armchairs and low ottomans, the lounge is the ideal place to enjoy an impeccably served high tea or to linger over some fine port or a cigar. The à la carte restaurant serves a range of exquisite dishes from around the world.
The property is dotted with two-storey clusters inspired by the grand estate houses of a bygone era. Each cluster has 10 en-suite air-conditioned rooms with every amenity imaginable. The rooms also have private balconies and terraces that offer a spectacular view of the great river and beyond. Each room is a quiet retreat from the imposing scale and ruggedness of Africa, with large shaded verandas and open spaces cooled by swirling fans and tall shutters.
