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.
