5 Incredible Things to Do in Livingstone – The place to be for adventure

The is no land more primed for adventure than the land that contains Livingstone as we know it. From wildlife to stunning natural wonders, this city has it all and travellers must simply reach out and grab it.
From cheetahs to waterfalls, there is no end to the excitement that can be had!


A wonder of the world awaits

Victoria Falls is known across the globe as one of the most stunning natural wonders on Earth. There is no comparison to its sheer scale and power. With close to 1.7 kilometres of water that cascades through a 108-meter drop, this is a place that has to be seen to be believed.
This waterfall is also shared between two nations, Zambia and Zimbabwe, which is a testament to its scale but it should also understand that both viewpoints are worth seeing
The best time to visit this attraction is during a full moon or between April to July.


Are you up for the Devil's Pool?

Being such a well-known location has brought Victoria Falls a huge amount of attention, this has also however helped elevate another unique aspect of these waterfalls.
During the low water level periods of the year, the water gives way to a little pool of water at the very lip of the waterfalls. The braver among the travellers will swim across and enjoy a picture at the very end of this massive waterfall. Being located on the Zambian side of the waterfall, it is an amazing activity for those who are fans of a good adrenaline rush.


Get close to the wildlife

The best thing about Livingstone is that it provides people to get up close and personal with the native wildlife. If you are staying at a Livingstone hotel such as the Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara do not hesitate to ask for help in organizing a trip that lets you walk lions through the African bush while getting to snap some pictures.


Try your hand at rafting

The Zambezi River is another wonder of nature, powerful and ancient, but still ripe for humans to raft along. A truly thrilling activity that will have you roaring like a Viking and there is no better place to experience this.
While there is an option to try out a half-day or full-day trip, many suggest trying out the full day trip. With rapids that can go up to being a class 5, there will be plenty of opportunities to have yourself tipped out of the raft. The great thing however is that this is a brilliant way to develop camaraderie.


Enter the markets

There is no better way to learn about the place you are in than by taking a visit to the local markets. Here you will find all segments of the local population going about their business. They can be selling handicrafts, vegetables, pottery or meat all of which unite to form a rich and diverse culture that is unique to this particular region on earth.
