Travel + Leisure magazine has released their 2012 list of the 500 best hotels in the world. This is always a highly anticipated event as the rankings are determined by magazine’s reader’s votes.



Sun International’s Royal Livingstone Hotel in Zambia has once again made the grade and The Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town has made the newcomers list. The number of high-scoring hotels in Africa also increased this year, with nine hotels in the top 25 and 45 properties overall.

Travel and leisure mentioned the following: At the Royal Livingstone Hotel guests enjoy the essential pleasures of travel whilst rediscovering the old fashioned values of yesterday. This 5-star hotel is steeped in African custom yet hints of European influences can be felt in the deep verandas and cool courtyard retreats, idyllically emulating the colonial days of safari travel in Africa. A dramatic view of the Zambezi River can be enjoyed from the grand public rooms, luxurious guest rooms and riverside deck.

Livingstone is Zambia’s gateway to the Victoria Falls where an evocative adventure, redolent with expression and emotion, awaits.  The innate heritage of the land yields prolific wildlife and exciting expeditions. Explore, discover and revel in the journey.
