Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel Opening November 2018

The essence of the reinvented Stanley & Livingstone is ‘intrinsically historic’. Inspired by a contemporary take on colonial style, its character is classic – with a sense of adventure. While honouring the hotel’s rich heritage, their bold approach to its updated design plays with natural light and quirky features to create spaces that are engaging and inspiring.

Set within the 2 500-hectare (6 200-acre) Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve the hotel is the perfect base from which to explore. Land safaris offer guests a unique experience, with the chance to see all of the Big Five – including the rare and endangered black rhino. Water safaris are operated too, and present an entirely different game-viewing experience of the reserve’s semiaquatic species, including crocodile and hippo.
A glimpse of the hotel:

  • 16 luxury suites each with a private terrace, en-suite shower and bath, air conditioning, minibar, satellite television and telephone
  • A gourmet restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The outdoor terrace enjoys elevated views of the waterhole
  • The bar and lounge area open onto the outdoor dining terrace
  • The fully serviced swimming pool, set within the landscaped gardens, overlooks the waterhole

Gorilla numbers in East Africa are up!

A new census of the gorilla population in East Africa has revealed positive results. The number of mountain gorillas across Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has risen to over 1 000. The Virunga Mountains, which straddle the three countries, are home to 604 mountain gorillas. During the last survey in 2010, the Virunga population was at 480. The remainder of the population calls Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park home.

The rise in numbers has been attributed to the introduction of trained park guards, better veterinary care, community support projects and better regulated tourism. The survey also makes special mention of the tireless efforts of the guards and rangers in the area, a number of whom have sacrificed their lives in the name of conservation.
