An absolute must if you travel to Southern Africa, Zambia is a fascinating destination in itself with a great variety of African wildlife, African culture, peaceful and friendly people-it is a destination you can spend your entire African holiday and come back for more! Even if you are on a business trip and don't have too much time to spare, a quick tour to Livingstone will add great memories to your Africa visit.
TLocated just outside the incredible Victoria Falls, Livingstone is a relatively small town that it easily explored on foot. A perfect place to kickoff your Zambia travel, Livingstone is surrounded by national parks that attract travellers seeking to go on a Zambia safari. The Victoria Falls are one of the seven natural wonders of the world and for those who want to experience them up close, there are many Livingstone hotels that offer Victoria Falls accommodation with magnificent views and sounds of the waterfalls just outside your window.
The town was named after David Livingstone, the missionary and explorer who was the first European to lay eyes on The Victoria Falls. He named the waterfalls after Queen Victoria, but the official title used in Zambia is the native name Mosi-oa-Tunya. Today The Victoria Falls are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, situated on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe on the Zambezi River. For those who want to spend some time up close to one of the largest waterfalls in the world, there are a number of Victoria Falls hotels with gorgeous views.
Livingstone is very close to where four countries meet. Zambia - Zimbabwe - Botswana - Namibia. A day trip to any of these countries is easily arranged and our Chobe Day Trips are always a success.
Besides The Victoria Falls, there are also Livingstone attractions within the city, such as the Livingstone Museum, the largest museum in Zambia, and also loads of vendors for excellent Livingstone shopping. The city is also replete with a wide-range of Livingstone restaurants, serving anything from international fare to local Southern African cuisine and some restaurants offer traditional shows that travellers can watch while eating the ethnic specialities.
Livingstone is quickly being known as the adventure base for Southern Africa, and there are numerous Zambia adventure experiences just outside the city, such as rafting, river boarding, bungee jumping, abseiling, kayaking, canoeing, jet boating, sky diving, walking with lions, riding on horses and elephants and playing with cheetahs or enjoying a bird walk. Rhino walks in search for these endangered species within The Mosi O Tunya National Park are also well worth it.
For travellers wanting to go on a safari in Zambia, there are loads of national parks boasting a wealth of wildlife- Zebras, baboons, elephants, hippos and buffalos are abundant. There are a number of Livingstone lodges available for those wanting to stay nearby one of the Zambia national parks.
