If you’re lucky enough to embark on a Victoria Falls Safari, then you cannot miss out on a visit to the tourism hot spot of Livingstone. Steeped in history and surrounded by an array of activity, it’s the ideal destination for those who want to experience the beauty of Zambia and Zimbabwe, along with the flurry of adventure that it offers.
Livingstone, named after the first British explorer (David Livingstone) to venture into the area, is a Zambian border town that has rail and road connections to Zimbabwe. On the city’s south-western edge rages the Victoria Falls, which are surrounded by the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Visitors to Livingstone on a Victoria Falls Safari are guaranteed an opportunity to view the Falls themselves and, if they wish, to go on wildlife and bird watching game drive in the National Park.
During your Victoria Falls tour, and as a result of the prime position of Livingstone, you will be able to enjoy an array of water activity in and along the Zambezi River. Free time can be split between cruising along the River enjoying a sunset drink, trying your hand at kayaking or chasing after the elusive tiger fish with a spot of sports fishing.
Aside from adventure, Livingstone is also one of the most romantic destinations on the planet. With a rich culture and a variety of accommodation options to suit your budget, it’s a highlight on any Victoria Falls Safari itinerary. Whatever you’d like to experience during your Victoria Falls Safari, Livingstone has it and, as evidenced by the town’s arts and crafts, museums, colonial architecture and local cuisine, you’ll be glad you made the journey to this intriguing African destination.
