Livingstone & Zambia
Very much like Zimbabwe, Zambia is the land of the walking safaris and small-personalised safari camps. It is also home to the mighty Victoria Falls along with the wild Zambezi River.
Livingstone is the town on the Zambia side of the mighty Victoria Falls which forms a natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. Livingstone is a few minutes by road transfer from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe or alternatively you can fly in internationally via Lusaka. Livingstone has developed greatly in the last few years and is now a bustling town with a great variety of Lodges and activities – see our Recommended Livingstone Lodges for more information.
Zambia’s National Parks are very good wildlife destinations- although they are quite far apart and hence air charters tend to be expensive. Zambia is acknowledged for being one of the safest countries in Africa, where its welcoming and friendly people live in peace and harmony. Whether you want a relaxing canoeing safari, or adrenaline pulsing bungee jump or some time in one of the legendary game reserves, Zambia has it all.
