The five star hotel, situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, was chosen out of hundreds of possible places that the well heeled have access to in Africa.
A survey, conducted by the New World Wealth report, reveals which safari destinations in Africa are the most popular, but while The Royal Livingstone is a hotel, not a lodge, it was – nevertheless – voted as a preferred destination.
The report stated that South Africa remained the most popular destination on the continent. However, lodges dotted across Africa, and the Royal Livingstone Hotel, were singled out in the top ten super luxury category.
The hotel, renowned for its superb service and colonial-inspired décor, is named after the famous explorer David Livingstone.
Graeme Stephens, CEO of Sun International said: “We are delighted with the accolade, but not at all surprised. The Royal Livingstone is quite unique, situated as it is on the banks of the mighty Zambezi, overlooking the seventh natural wonder of the world, Victoria Falls.
“We are very proud of all our staff at the Royal Livingstone who embody service excellence. This acknowledgement from the world’s richest tourists is really a tribute to their dedication. Our people go that extra mile to ensure guest satisfaction, and it appears to have paid off.”
