Aside from the three Zambian national parks we specialise in, we also offer Livingstone as a destination. If you would like to visit the Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world, then you must incorporate a trip to Livingstone when visiting Malawi or Zambia.

Livingstone & Victoria Falls

Livingstone is a tourism centre for the Victoria Falls and Zambia, in recent years it has firmly become the destination of choice when visiting the falls. Named after David Livingstone, the British explorer who was the first European to explore the area.

Livingstone is rich in scenery and colonial heritage. The town was founded in 1906, and in 1911 it became the capital of Northern Rhodesia, now called Zambia. Today the town has preserved much of its colonial history, with many of the buildings still in use, however, it is a typical African town with a busy charm.

Things to do at Victoria Falls

The Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and one of the greatest attractions in Africa, offers awe-inspiring views and unique attractions such as the Boiling Pot and Devil’s Pool. There is so much to do at the falls, you will need to visit at least twice. Activities include boat tours, white water rafting, bungee jump, kayaking, helicopter rides, micro-lighting, and swim in Devil’s Pool (from mid-August to mid-January).

If you don’t fancy any high-octane activities, you can drive through the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park which is situated along the upper Zambezi River. It includes the Victoria Falls and stretches for about 12 kilometres up the Zambezi River above the falls. Although the park is small, only 66 square kilometres, it is home to a wide variety of species including, antelope, zebra, giraffe, elephants and warthog.

Must do’s

  1. Bungee jump off Victoria Falls Bridge:
5-4-3-2-1- BUNGEE! If you are an adrenaline junkie you must bungee off the famous Victoria Falls Bridge. 111m of freefall lasting about 4 seconds it’s the ultimate thrill! With its stunning backdrop of the magnificent Victoria Falls, it has been dubbed by many as the most spectacular bungee setting in the world.
  2. Swim in the ultimate infinity pool:
Devil’s Pool is adjacent to the famous Livingstone Island situated on the edge of the Victoria Falls. Feeling brave? Enjoy an exhilarating swim to the edge of the falls. But don’t worry, there are guides in attendance who are on hand to make sure you don’t go over the edge.
  3. Admire the falls from above:
It’s one thing to see the falls from ground level but quite another from above. Take a helicopter ride or even a microlight above the thundering Zambezi and feel the power of the Victoria Falls. The microlight in particular offers unique views of the Victoria Falls. Either option provides unparalleled views of the falls and the spectacular gorge that the Zambezi River has carved into the surrounding landscape. This truly is an experience not to be missed.
