The charming and quaint old colonial town of Livingstone is named after the famous Victorian missionary and explorer, Dr. David Livingstone, and was once the bustling capital of Zambia. Although no longer the country’s capital, Livingstone remains a very historical town and is Zambia’s most popular tourist destination. Architecture buffs will enjoy the elegant Edwardian buildings, left over from its days as the nation’s capital, which line the town’s wide avenues.
Livingstone is loved by locals and travelers alike for being home to the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls, and no trip to this town is complete without beholding this world wonder. During high season from February to June, the spray alone from the magical energy-charged waters will soak you. Its convenient location near the mighty Zambezi River and Victoria Falls makes Livingstone Zambia’s adventure gateway and it is known as one the world’s adrenaline capitals. Canoeing and whitewater rafting down the Zambezi are just a couple of the activities popular with adventurous travelers.
