Understated elegance in the royal Livingstone

Understated elegance in the royal Livingstone


The grandest of all our suites, the Livingstone Suite is a standalone thatched roof house located on the Old Traders dam wall with exclusive views across the waterhole, and within walking distance of the Old Traders restaurant. It has its own private entry way leading onto a wooden deck suspended just above the water. Wrap-around glass doors and 4 entrances give the majestic bedroom, living area, and bathroom a sense of being outdoors.

The interior oozes an old world colonial charm with a master bed draped in fine linens and mosquito nets. Persian carpets, granite tiling, dark wooden furniture, leather tub chairs, and a large leather sofa offer all the peace and comfort you will need after action-packed game drives. There is a private collection of wildlife books to read. The kitchenette is convenient with its abundance of fresh fruit and an espresso machine, while a fully stocked booze cabinet and fridge grants unlimited access to a multitude of beverages – serve these up in the suite’s crystal glasses. The open plan living area flows into a striking bathroom where an impressive bathtub invites you in to absorb the views. A pedestal basin with marble top has Old English faucets with extendable vanity mirror.

The outdoor area is equally impressive with a small jet-powered splash pool and sun loungers. An outdoor shower is accessible next to the pool. The quiet garden is beautiful for bird watching. The grey go-away-bird (Corythaixoides concolor), also known as the grey loerie visits the garden often. The 180-degree views of the surrounding waterhole and bushveld are spectacular. These elements combined make the Livingstone a suite fit for a king.
