Livingstone is the gateway to one of the world’s natural wonders, the mighty Victoria Falls. Named after the famous explorer David Livingstone, it pulsates with adventure and holds a rich Southern African heritage. 

The Majestic Victoria Falls Smoke That Thunders​

Set on the banks of the Zambezi River, Livingstone offers a natural blend of beauty and warm Zambian hospitality and owes its existence primarily to Victoria Falls, or Mosi-oa-Tunya – the Smoke that Thunders, as it is aptly known. Victoria Falls remains the primary draw card and, in every sense, lives up to its title as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. With a width of 1688m and a height of 108m, in season it sends more than five hundred million cubic meters of water plummeting over the edge each minute, creating a spray that is visible for miles. Nothing quite prepares you for the sheer exhilaration of being there though, walking the pathway that hugs the deep crevice below as you take in the full force of the spray. Experience the rush of bungee jumping off the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge, one of the world’s highest jumps. Take a heart-pounding microlight or helicopter flight over the falls, witnessing breathtaking aerial views of this magnificent natural wonder.
