Lively Things to Do in Livingstone, Zambia - Experience a True Escape at This Charming Colonial Town

Livingstone is one of those places where you will never run out of things to do. As a land rich with history, culture, and endless places of natural scenery, this small colonial town has something for everyone. From adventurers to explorers and romantics, everyone is guaranteed to have a great time.


Visit The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and Victoria Falls

Mosi-oa-Tunya is Zambia's smallest National Park, well known for its world-famous waterfall, the Victoria Falls. Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is the reason why many people visit Livingstone. The breathtaking views of the falls and the gaping gorge below are guaranteed to blow your mind.

Apart from enjoying the wonders of Victoria Falls, another thing you can do at Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is wildlife spotting, especially the white rhino the park is most famous for.


Visit Livingstone Island

Located on the edge of Victoria Falls, Livingstone Island offers the perfect viewpoint to take in the true beauty of the falls. It takes a 12km drive from Victoria Falls to get to Livingstone Island. This is where David Livingstone first discovered Victoria Falls in 1855. Even after one and a half centuries, visitors today can experience the same sense of excitement and natural beauty at Livingstone Island. You can also have breakfast, lunch, or high tea at one of the camps on the island.


Go Swimming in The Devil's Pool and Angel's Pool

The Devil's Pool and Angel's Pool are two infinity pools like no other in Livingstone Island. If you are an adrenaline junkie looking for the perfect activity to indulge in, then here's one for you. The Devil's Pool is the favourite of many tourists out of the two pools, as it offers the opportunity to sit at the very edge of Victoria Falls and peer into the huge drop as the water rolls over the side. Given the number of tourists these two pools attract every year, it is advisable to book them in advance to avoid disappointment.


Have High Tea at One of The Luxurious Resorts in Town

Treat yourself to an afternoon of high tea at one of the luxurious hotels in Livingstone Zambia, including the likes of the Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara. Having some tea and cakes while enjoying the magnificent views of Livingstone is one of the best as well as memorable ways of spending your evening.


Cruise down the Zambezi River

Cruising down the Zambezi River is one of those things that you should not miss on your visit to Livingstone Zambia. Make sure that you take the cruise in the evening so that you can enjoy the tranquil and gorgeous sunset. While it may come as a surprise to you, many tourists say that it is one of the most relaxing moments of their time at Livingstone. If you are lucky, you will be able to spot elephants along the river banks and some crossing the river.
