Livingstone Tours, Vacations, Travel Packages & Experiences

  • Mosi-oa-Tunya means 'Smoke that Thunders' and is a must inclusion on all Zambia safaris.

Livingstone is a border town with road and rail connections with Zimbabwe.  A tourist centre for the world famous Victoria Falls and gateway for Zambia safaris, Livingstone is the capital of Zambia’s Southern Province.

In 1885, Scottish missionary explorer David Livingstone became the first European to explore the Zambezi and the town that was later established was named in his honour.  By 1897, a colonial settlement was set up at the Old Drift, the crossing point of the Zambezi, however malaria threats caused the settlers to move to higher ground and their new location grew into what is now Livingstone. 

The years leading up to and following Zambian independence were somewhat tumultuous and when much of the european population began to move on, Livingstone fell into disarray.  Thankfully, recent years have witnessed great improvement with income coming from tourists on a Zambia vacation choosing to view Victoria Falls from the Zambian side, rather than from Zimbabwe.

It is the UNESCO World Heritage listed Victoria Falls or Mosi-Oa-Tunya (The Smoke that Thunders) that has put Livingstone on the map.  Twice as tall as Niagara Falls and several times longer, the falls are an incredible sight to behold.  The immense scenery as well as adventure sport opportunities like white water rafting and bungee jumping bring many tourists to the area each year.
