Livingstone is named after the Victorian explorer Dr David Livingstone.
Our town is situated by the Victoria Falls, on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River ... a world heritage site and stunningly beautiful part of the world. Dr Livingstone, who was born in Scotland in 1813, was the first white man to discover The Victoria Falls, known here in Zambia as Mosi-oi-a-Tunya - the smoke that thunders.
Experience the region’s striking natural beauty, spectacular fauna and flora, and breathtaking African sunsets over the Zambezi. Float leisurely along the river, sip traditional African sundowners, and listen to the fish eagles soaring overhead and the chattering vervet monkeys playing in the trees.
is a landlocked country
It has eight neighbouring countries: Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
Livingstone is nestled on the banks of the Zambezi River just upstream from the Victoria Falls and is, therefore, an ideal stepping off point for your African adventure.
Zambia is a friendly, democratic country comprising 72 tribes and 60 different languages. The population is approximately 12 million.
Literally as old as the hills...
Early Stone Age archaeological sites at Victoria Falls show the emergence of primitive humankind as far back as 60,000 years ago. Livingstone over the centuries has become a vibrant multi-cultural melting pot, rich in diversity and much celebrated by its inhabitants and visitors alike.
The Falls are 1,708 metres wide and 108 metres highWhile known as the world’s largest waterfall Victoria Falls is neither the highest (Angel Falls) nor the widest (Khone Falls). However, it is the largest curtain of falling water on the planet, one and a half times wider than Niagra Falls and twice as high.
Livingstone is 3,000 feet above sea-level and in the centre of the African continent, approximately 1500 kms from the nearest coast. We enjoy 3 seasons here - cool and dry, hot and dry and warm and wet. Temperatures vary considerably between the seasons. Winter days (June-August) are warm and pleasant, although temperatures can drop to 5º at night. Summer temperatures (October-November) can soar to 40ºC, with the hottest months being October and November. The rainy season runs from around early November through to mid-end March, turning the countryside a lush green and providing a wonderful habitat for birds and other animals.
