Itineraries

Day 1

Livingstone - the mighty Victoria Falls

Welcome to Livingstone, Zambia. Home of the mighty Victoria Falls - one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We meet you at Livingstone's "Harry Mwanga Nkumbula" International Airport. From here we drive a short distance to our lodge. After checking in and refreshing we visit the Victoria Falls in the afternoon and walk in front of the Falls and go down in to the gorge. Don't worry. This isn't a competition but a great experience, especially seeing the only rainforest in southern Africa. Full of impressions already we are heading back to our lodge for dinner and some well deserved rest.
