Livingstone

Where the gently swirling waters of the Zambezi River suddenly plunge more than 100 metres vertically down into the deep, basalt gorge throwing up great clouds of spray hundreds of feet into the air can be found one of nature’s most spectacular wonders. Famous the world over, the power and energy of the Victoria Falls are both breathtaking and awe-inspiring.

Why visit Livingstone ?

The ‘Flight of the Angels’ over the falls themselves allows an unusual perspective whilst other activities in the area include a boat trip to Livingstone Island on the lip of the Falls for a champagne lunch, a visit to the museums and local markets of Livingstone town, game viewing in Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, picnic lunches on one of the river’s islands, white water rafting, bungee jumping, game viewing in the Zambezi National Park, canoeing or golfing.

Two particularly fine lodges in the area are Tongabezi: a small, secluded lodge set in a shady grove of ebony trees situated approximately 20 km upstream from the mighty Falls; and the River Club, which has a distinctive Edwardian flavour and enjoys a tranquil setting amongst the lush riverine vegetation, boasting just ten luxury thatched chalets – a true romantic’s paradise!
