Things to Do in Livingstone
This protected wildlife reserve may only be 66 square kilometers, but Mosi-Oa-Tunya still offers visitors a unique opportunity to see Zambia’s biodiversity—including rare rhinos—in a relatively concentrated environment. The park is divided into two parts. Visitors interested in local wildlife can schedule can spot giraffes, wildebeests and hundreds of unique-to-Zambia birds by scheduling a game drive. And the falls section of the park offers a host of clearly marked and well-kept paths that wind through towering forests. Outdoor adventurists can make the steep descent into the Boiling Pot, and watch whitewater rafters board for a wild ride on the Zambezi River.
Located at the top of Victoria Falls on Livingstone Island, Devil’s Pool offers visitors a chance to swim to the edge—literally—of one of the world’s tallest waterfalls. Slippery, submerged rocks provide the only protection between adventurous travelers and a 328-foot (100-meter) drop into thundering waters, making it a thrilling adventure.
