Neighbour to Zimbabwe, Zambia shares a significant portion of the stunning Victoria Falls. Her historic town, known as Livingstone, is located a short drive from the famous bridge border point overlooking the Falls. While Zambia herself offers a number of excellent safari options, we currently only feature Livingstone as a complement to our Southern African programme.
Getting your Bearings
The first step to planning your holiday is to understand the regions and how to get there. From the UK, the only Southern African country with direct links to the United Kingdom is South Africa with flights to Johannesburg and Cape Town from London with onward connections to Livingstone and Lusaka. Many of our guests combine Botswana with a visit to the Victoria Falls and this is something that we highly recommend. Our Travel Team are on hand to plan the best route for you.
Bear in mind that the Victoria Falls is shared with neighbouring Zimbabwe and it is easy to stay on the Zimbabwean side of the border as well.
Where to Go
Zimbabwe offers a multitude of experiences from sightseeing to wonderful game viewing. With Zimbabwe only recently reclaiming its place on the world tourism stage, it is still very much a tailor-made destination. Contact our Travel Team to get the ball rolling.
The town of LIvingstone lies on the northernbank of the Zambezi and has become a focal point for action-packed fun including enchanting sightseeing flights over the falls, which can be done by light-aircraft, helicopter and microlight.
Livingstone or Maramba is a historic colonial city and present capital of the Southern Province of Zambia, a tourism centre for the Victoria Falls lying 10 km (6.2 mi) north of the Zambezi River, and a border town with road and rail connections to Zimbabwe on the other side of the Falls. Victoria Falls, described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800's as 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' - 'the Smoke that Thunders' and in more modern terms as 'the greatest known curtain of falling water', Victoria Falls are a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe.
