Maps of Livingstone

Previously the capital of Zambia before it was moved to Lusaka, Livingstone is fast becoming a major player in the tourism stakes of the Victoria Falls.

Livingstone itself is being upgraded with new shopping complexes and with plenty of accommodation choices the traveler is well catered for.
Although Livingstone is a fairly safe town be careful walking around at night as there are very few streetlights.
Taxis are freely available for hire or hop on a mini bus to get to the Falls.

The Victoria Falls

To view the Falls, there is a network of walkways over the abyss and a steep track down to the base of the falls.

This World Heritage Site, is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience as the Zambezi river tears headlong over the 1.7km expanse down into the chasm 110 metres below it
