Livingstone is only 10 km from the splendour of the Victoria Falls, one of the Wonders of the World and culturally, the town has much to offer its visitors.
There are no less than three museums, one of which is the Livingstone Museum (Zambia’s National Museum), where an excellent collection of memorabilia relating to Dr David Livingstone is on display.
The Falls are a sight never to be forgotten, even by the most travelled.
On the opposite cliff, facing the falls, you can take a well marked and paved walk through the lush rain forests with its miniature rainbows and thick vegetation.
Every so often the path will open out into a clearing for yet another view of the falls.
Further along this path is the Knife Edge Bridge which affords an impressive panorama, depending on the time of year.
The falls are about 1.7 km wide, with an average drop of some 90 – 95 metres. The flow is broken up by small islands on the lip of the falls.
At peak floods over 550,000 cubic metres of water per minute pass over the Falls!
A large range of activities are also on offer. These include, among others: abseiling, boat cruises, bungee jumping, canoeing, elephant-back riding, fishing, hiking, helicopter flights, micro-lighting and white water rafting.
Some of these activities are for true adrenalin junkies and are not available to children under certain ages. Please check with us in good time, and we will get the necessary information for you.
Cultural villages, craft markets and historical sites contribute toward making a visit to this area a truly colourful and varied adventure …. and a must!
