Livingstone is a picturesque town found in Zambia’s southwestern reaches. It is a quintessential African retreat that contains all the sights, and flavours the continent is renowned for. So, if you’re vacationing out here, consider following this travel guide for the very best African experience.
A Visit to Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls is by far Livingstone’s most famous attraction. Almost any Livingstone hotel of note – for example, the Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara – will include this attraction in their itinerary, so don’t miss out! Try to visit the falls when the water is low- this will grant you an unparalleled view of the endless stream of water crashing down.
Exploring the Devil’s Pool
Right after getting your fill of Victoria Falls, just make a short walk downstream and be treated to the spectacular sight of this crystal-clear pool. Found right at the edge of the waterfall, you can even poke your head over the end of the pool and witness the massive drop down!
An African Safari
A trip to Africa wouldn’t be complete without a game drive along one of the continent’s many expansive national parks. Here in Zambia, the fantastic Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is the best option available. Here you’ll find sprawling herds of zebra, wildebeest, African elephant, and even the feared Cape buffalo.
Experiencing Zambian Culture
While you’re here in Livingstone, take time to experience the local Zambian culture and history. One of the best ways to do this is to visit the feature-rich Livingston museum. There are numerous exhibits here that tell the story of Livingstone – from its discovery to the present day.
