Named after well-known British explorer, David Livingstone, the town of Livingstone in southwestern Zambia has many allures; here are some of the highlights that await.
The Mighty Victoria Falls
Arguably the main attraction here is the mesmerising Victoria Falls which is amongst the Seven Natural Wonders of the World! Properties like The Royal Livingstone Victoria Falls Zambia Hotel by Anantara offer direct access to the falls as well as helicopter or microlight excursions for a unique perspective of this stunning spectacle.
Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park
Nature and wildlife enthusiasts can visit the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park; some Livingstone hotel properties are located within it meaning you get to see animals like zebras, giraffes and vervet monkeys roaming freely! You can also take game drives at the park, which is home to elephants, white rhinos, antelopes and more.
Rich History & Culture
For some cultural insights, you can explore the town of Livingstone; here you will find the Livingstone Museum which covers aspects like natural history, archaeology, tribal artefacts and David Livingstone. The Railway Museum and Jewish Museum are also of interest, while some resorts give you a chance to join a typical village dinner too.
If you are looking for some action-packed things to do in Livingstone, then make sure to try bungee jumping off the 111-metre high Victoria Falls Bridge! For more exhilaration, you can go white water rafting on the Zambezi River or visit Livingstone Island with its spectacular views from the “Devil’s Pool” at the edge of Victoria Falls.
