Wake up to a warm breeze, the distant roar of lions, and a symphony of birds. Step out onto your very own verandah and down to the infinity pool where you can gaze at the spray from the nearby Victoria Falls. If this sounds appealing, then a few days at the Stanley Safari Lodge, located in Livingstone, Zambia might be just what you are looking for.
Set on a hill bordering the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and overlooking the unspoiled bush, Stanley Safari Lodge is only three kilometers from the Victoria Falls. The main lodge area is an oasis of calm. The views from the main tropical garden, the infinity pool, and from the privacy of your room, are spectacular.
The suites are individual cabins set in beautifully landscaped grounds. These ten uniquely designed chalets are constructed of teak and local stone and are open-fronted, or are designed in a colonial style with brick and tiled rooms which are closed. Each unit is a bit different and very spacious with big comfy beds, well-appointed baths, even adaptors, and hair dryers.
The staff are incredibly attentive and genuinely friendly, with great attention to detail. Everything comes with a big Zambian smile! The wonderful dining can be taken in the open lodge or in the garden by candlelight. Food is both excellent and varied. The highlight is that the staff often seat you in different areas to eat. Each area has its own charm and each area is terribly beautiful.
Take a guided tour of the Victoria Falls, a game drive, or just laze by the pool and marvel at the views and the mist from Victoria Falls in the distance. If you laze for long enough the wildlife just might come and find you!
Sip a gin and tonic and enjoy yet another beautiful African sunset. However you choose to spend your days and nights at the Stanley Safari Lodge, you can be sure they will be amazing.
