Bespoke ‘water retreat experiences’ for health conscious luxury travellers have been devised by the Royal Livingstone Hotel.

Guests arrive by water taxi to the five star retreat on the Zambezi River a few metres from the Victoria Falls in Zambia.

The property claims to be the only one in Africa to offer this type of transfer where the journey often includes a glimpse of wildlife such as hippopotamus.

Guests also have access to their own private entrance to the waterfalls – renowned as one of the seven wonders of the world.

General manager Emmanuelle Moneger said: “We are extremely proud to introduce bespoke water retreat spa experiences for guests of the Royal Livingstone.

“We also invite our guests to reconnect with mother nature by exploring the Victoria Falls or swim in the Devil’s Pool just at the edge of the falls, discovering the endless rainbows and range of colours the waterfall produces and enjoy a refreshing “shower” of negative ions known to increase levels of serotonin, therefore helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress and boost our daytime energy.

“Thanks to the unlimited complimentary entrance to the Victoria Falls, the hotel’s guests can enjoy a daily walk at the falls and recharge their batteries in the most natural way.”
