Victoria Falls

Livingstone Activities

Livingstone is a safari hub and an adventure capital - where adrenalin pumps high when you take on the Zambezi river

Whether whitewater rafting or bunji jump the thrill is awesome

When you get tired of the adventure slow the pace with a round of golf or some fishing

How about a tour of the Falls or take in some game viewing at the Mosi oa Tunya national park

Feeling nostalgic then head for the Railway Museum or have dinner on the Royal Livingstone Express train service.
