Victoria Falls

Livingstone is the tourist capital of Zambia and that’s not hard to believe considering how much there is to see and do all within one town. Here is a 3 day jam packed itinerary for an amazing adventurous visit to Livingstone.

Day 1- Be Adventurous

Livingstone Island Victoira Falls 2

Tour of Victoria Falls in the morning, which takes about an one and half hours. Following the tour, head over to the Royal Livingstone Hotel. If you have time, enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck overlooking Livingstone Island.

Livingstone Island 2

At 12:30pm, take the boat across to Livingstone Island for a tour, where you can look over the edge of the waterfall. If you dare, take a plunge into the Devil's Pool or Angel's Pool, where you are just steps from the edge of the falls. Following an adventurous tour, enjoy a late lunch on the island which is paired with delicious South African wine.


You will return to the Royal Livingstone at 3:00pm. After lunch, you can really get in close to the falls by taking a helicopter over the falls or be even more adventurous by taking a micro flight over the falls.
