Lusaka – Livingstone, Zambia
At the start of the day, we head south toward Livingstone and set up camp at the Waterfront campsite located on the banks of the Zambezi River which is just a few kilometres from Victoria Falls. We make a visit to the Victoria Falls and at various times of the year, the spray from this mighty waterfall can be seen from up to 30 kilometres away, hence the local name Mosi au Tunya meaning ‘the smoke that thunders’. During the excitement of this excursion, try not to forget your raincoat to protect you and your camera from splashes of water.
The camp is incredible and management will provide a brief on all activities in the area (including rafting, canoeing, bungee jumping, abseiling, gorge swinging, horse riding, scenic flights, river cruises, etc.), allowing you to plan your time accordingly over the next four days.
PLEASE NOTE: For the sake of practicality, meals in Livingstone are restricted to breakfasts. This allows you to take on half day or full day activities (some of which include lunch) without having to be back with the group at mealtimes. The Waterfront restaurant overlooks the Zambezi River and offers a good selection of reasonably priced meals and snacks
throughout the day (allow US$15 -$30 per meal). Relax and enjoy these few days at your own leisure. Alternatively, take a taxi or free shuttle into Livingstone and try the local fare.
