Radisson Hotel Group has announced the opening of Radisson Blu Mosi-oa-Tunya Livingstone Resort in Zambia.
The hotel is the Group’s first safari resort and the first resort in Zambia.
The Group said that the launch serves as a key step towards its goal of reaching 150 hotels in operation and under development in Africa by 2025.
Radisson Blu Mosi-oa-Tunya Livingstone Resort is ideally located near the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, 2km south of the historic city of Livingstone, and 4km northwest of Victoria Falls.
The new resort’s General Manager Shaun Wheeler said he is thrilled to lead the team as they open the hotel to offer visitors memorable moments.
“The resort has been constructed and will operate with the greatest respect to one of the world’s largest waterfalls and habitat for several unique species of plants and animals,” Wheeler said.
Radisson Hotel Group Middle East and Africa CCO Tim Cordon said that the expansion demonstrates their belief in the country’s potential.
“This hotel is our second property in Zambia, following the opening of Radisson Blu Hotel Lusaka, with the third hotel, Park Inn by Radisson Lusaka, Longacres set to open in 2023,” Cordon said.
The resort offers a fitness centre, spa, swimming pools, a boma and firepit as well as 200 rooms, luxurious suites, and villas, many with unparalleled views of the River Zambezi.
Cordon also said that the building has obtained a prestigious EDGE green building certification because of the hotel’s 20% increase in energy efficiency, water reduction, and use of sustainable building materials, compared to other similar properties in the region.
Radisson Blu Mosi-oa-Tunya Livingstone Resort offers visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in a unique River Cruise and off-the-river adventure excursion.
This is from Victoria Falls bridge activities to helicopter rides, water rafting, canoeing, game drives, and many more.
