Livingstone is a vibrant city lying just a stone's throw from the Victoria Falls – one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World – and offers a smorgasbord of adventure sports activities
No trip to Livingstone is complete without taking time to savour the spectacle of the world's largest curtain of water plummetting into the churning Boiling Pot below. Victoria Falls are magnificent and are well worth viewing more than once. For those visitors with the stomach for it, the Flight of Angels in a helicopter or, better still, a microlight provides an incredible bird's-eye perspective of the thunderous cascade from above. Alternatively, climb aboard a river raft to view the falls from the depths of Batoka Gorge.

"Livingstone has developed a deserved reputation as a bucket-list-topping destination for thrill-seekers and waterfall aficionados from around the world. Visit soon though, as a new dam in the Batoka Gorge is going to rob Zambia of the greatest white-water adventure currently available on the planet."
