We have come to like the David Livingstone Lodge so much that whenever we travel to Livingstone, we stay there. The staff all round are amazing. They make you feel welcome at all times. The Sundowner Cruise is always a must. Great experience.

I was in Livingstone for a Copper Cobalt conference and stayed only one night but experience with the people and facilities was great. I am looking to visit for holiday in the near future with my wife.
