Zambia offers unbelievable game viewing, whether you're here for Zambia's wildebeest migration in Liuwa Plains, canoeing in the Lower Zambezi, a walking safari in South Luangwa or tracking Lion in Kafue with Chris McBride. But many, if not all travellers, venture to Zambia to see the Victoria Falls in Livingstone.
Livingstone, the tourist capital city of Zambia, is a bustling, colonial town shaded by red-flamed Flamboyant trees and deep purple Jacarandas. It's a rare African city with classic art deco and colonial homesteads. Restaurants, bars and markets abound. The Maramba market sells every conceivable item from chitenge (brightly coloured fabric), fruit and vegetables, to mushrooms and rice, souvenirs, live chickens and beads and handcrafted furniture.
The spectacular Victoria Falls, the world's widest curtain of falling water and previously one of the seven natural wonders of the world, is at the centre of Livingstone, which is fast becoming the adventure capital of Southern Africa. The Falls Resort is at the centre of all activity. The five-star Royal Livingstone Hotel is an earthy retreat overlooking the Victoria Falls. Named as one of the best hotels in the world by Travel & Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler, this beautiful African hotel is highly sought after for its beautiful World Heritage location, fine dining, adventurous outdoor activities and warm hospitality. There's no better way to relax and enjoy the breath taking sunsets than from the hotel's popular decks overlooking the Falls. The three-star Zambezi Sun's informality is echoed in its carefree architecture, buffet restaurant and lively pool scene. It's the perfect place to visit for a family holiday filled with adventure.
